I can't get SYNC to recognize my HTC Amaze 4G as a BT audio player. I was trying to stream Pandora, and when I hit the speak button and said "BT audio" is said no devices found, even though I know my phone can stream music via BT. Anyone have any thoughts? When I looked in the SYNC menu, it has under my phone's profile: PBAP 3way call. Anyone know where I can find what this means?

Does anyone know if the Spotify app is available for our system yet? I read about it on Automotive News. It will work similiar to how the MP3 / iPod music works now.

Thanks.
Mine never has worked with my Galaxy S2, so it might be a Samsung thing.

Or press the talk button and say Bluetooth Stereo and it will connect to whatever music app you have playing on the phone, ex.: Pandora, Slacker, etc.

Has anyone had their iphone get stuck indexing music? I have tried updating my sync, but it is up-to-date. I am currently running 'sync my itunes' on my music collection, but for some reason I cannot access my iphone through sync (via usb) since about 2 days ago.

Edit: I have read through about 15 pages of this thread with many suggestions... none of which worked :( I don't want to have to pull fuses, because in all honesty, that shouldn't be needed. My question... is this something that would be covered under warrantee? Because honestly, I have less than 16,000 km on my ride, it isn't even 9 months old, and not being able to listen to my music is killing me. I loved SYNC while it worked, but not so much now :(

This was interesting. Last night I filled up with gas and reset my mpg... about 20 minutes later I noticed the clock had reset on my sync display.

Just took the plunge, plugged in a 64GB USB drive into my 'puter and told media center to Sync it, went to bed. This morning I plugged it into the car and in all of less than 1 minute it had completed the two steps, they went by so fast that I'm not even sure of what they were called but it did say that I have something over 2200 songs. Wonder of wonders it seems to be working and all my files are WMA Looseless - I did not even expect it to work but I seem to have everything, song, titles, artists, cover art.

The only thing I can't seem to find is the playlists, are they listed under some menu item? Next on the agenda, getting the voice command structure down so that I can ask for something and get what I ask for.

Does anyone know what the "Occupancy Mode" settings do? It's under "Audio Settings". There are two settings: "Optimize All" and "Optimize Driver". Does anyone know what they do? I was hoping it'd just be a phase adjustment, but it seems like it does EQ stuff, too (ie, "Optimize Passenger" is boomier while "Optimize Driver" is tinnier).

P.S. I hope this is the right thread; I didn't want to make a new one.

Pretty sure it sends the majority of sound to wherever you want it. ie less sound to driver when passenger is optimized
