This is where the frustration began. 20 seconds into track 2, it decided to start track 3. Um, okay. When I reached the end of the album, it switched to a new album with unknown artist, 0 tracks. It would not skip forward, backward, or play. Silence!
I selected a new album from my iPhone (yes I pulled over first). I skipped to the last track and let it play. When it reached the end, the same thing happened, silence. I changed source to Sirius, then back to BT. Still wouldn't play.

I started a new album and let it play. I had to stop for gas. When I got back in and started the car, it was still on BT, but now the display read Walt's iPhone where it should have the artist and song title, the track listing was where I had left it, and it would not play, skip back or forward. It was silent again! I finally had enough and switched it to Sirius for the rest of my trip.

Anyone else having this BT quirkiness? IOS5 or IOS6? I don't really want to upgrade to IOS6 but I may to see if my issues are resolved.
You are the 3rd person on here (including me) that has experienced the BT track auto-advance (skip) problem on 3.5.1. I'm kinda glad others are experiencing this but I'm sorry that it is you. I have the same problems as you described and I use an iPhone 4S 6.0.1. BT audio has always been the worst part of MFT and it looks like 3.5.1 doesn't fix it completely. I suggest you avoid BT audio until someone has resolved this issue. Someone reported that they did a master reset/delayed reboot and it fixed the issue for them. However, this did not fix it for me. I'm going to do a fuse pull+master reset tomorrow to see if it helps. For now, I just plug my phone into the USB and listen that way.

Here is my log of the problem

*Edit* A fuse pull+master reset did not fix this issue for me.
