BLRich1 Thanks guys. I may swing by the dealer and see if they can help me out. All three of us are using the iPhone 5 so you would think the system would operate the same...screwy MFT. Who knew you could love and hate something so much?

Every now and then mine seems to lock up but 99% of the time I can skip tracks using the steering wheel buttons or screen buttons. Works for all streaming apps I use (Pandora, Slacker, Spotify).

StockTalon If I listen to music via Bluetooth on my way into work, it automatically plays it again when I go home. No pressing buttons or, saying commands.

That is with a old Droid X2 and what ever code my car is on.

Yes but, it doesn't work all the time.

gsxrboy MFT 3.0.2 using my Galaxy Nexus phone playing RDIO through bluetooth and it plays extremely well. No skips, no lag and it automatically begins playing my music when I enter the car and I have the app opened. It would be great to be able to skip, fast forward using MFT, but then they would have to create a program specifically for RDIO and that would just be a headache to program and update.

dutd33 Just tried it and it works like a charm!

Thanks again!

P.S. I guess I should really start reading the manuals LOL.

Takes less time than hitting buttons, but I do feel kinda ridiculous talking to a car. And forget about it if anyone else is in the car with me.
Awesome I will try this tomorrow morning.

I only have an SEL without MFT but I'm sure you can stream music and still use the controls on the touch screen. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

I just had the chance to utilize it this past weekend and thought it was absolutleyl amazing!

However, one annoying thing that bothered me was that I had to go to the Menu to select "Bluetooh Audio Stream" each time I got back into the car.

Is there a quick way around this?
Current MFT
Change voice control to advanced first off. Hit the bluetooth button on the menu Hit the paddle, say bluetooth audio, wait for the tone, say play.

New MFT
I just installed the new MFT update tonight (3.5) and it seems to remember the audio source better now. You don't have to click stuff and say a command, just one or the other. The audio did skip a little bit at first though so that is scary and I think it was skipping a track automatically somehow. Hopefully this isn't going to be the new problem because otherwise the system finally works great! My setup is as follows.

iphone 5
using spotify mobile app for all my music
using apple podcast player for everything else
using purely bluetooth for the sake of ease

Also, audio quality is fine for me.

Burns098356GX I found that the blutooth audio quality is terrible. Plus i have yet to hear of a device that MFT can index and create voice controls for.
