Oh, that does suck ... I'd hoped to reflash it to see if maybe it was a corruption issue. The odd thing with these MFT issues is that some people have issues while others do not and they're running the same software, that tells me it's either a hardware thing or the software is being corrupted. Sadly, I had few if any issues with the two previous versions but this one has a couple bugs that the others didn't.

I don't stream music from my phone though I've tried it and generally use the USB as the audio is encoded at high bit-rate and is superior to the crap from Pandora etc. I have indexing turned off as I had in the previous versions but I get frequent problems with the audio starting up at engine start even though I'd pressed to audio power button to shut it off before I last shut the car down. It also tends to start playing from the beginning of the song list even though I never play music that way -- I always play it by artist or by album.
