I had all kinds of problems today. Twice I got the performing system maintenance message. It seems now that most times I start the car it boots to an audio source of its choice regardless of the source when I last stopped. Sluggish response while trying to change the source to Sirius. Satnav went on hiatus in the middle of setting a destination.

What's up with that? It happens to me all the time, usually when listening to USB it will switch to AUX, and CD's sometimes switch to FM. Makes no sense at all. And it doesn't always switch either, which makes it weird.

It tends to change to FM foreign language stations. I end up having to explain to people that I do not listen to the radio station that came on ... the car just does it. They usually just look at me funny and say ... um ... yeah right.

I got the iPhone 5 yesterday. It kept failing every time I would ask it to play an artist or album. This morning I started the car and I got a blank screen and then it did the Microsoft reboot screen and now all is well.

I think it works great, but I don't use the menus and screen for anything (except viewing the song/artist info). I use the steering wheel controls for thumbs up/down (holding ff or rw, respectively), and I use voice controls for changing stations. Play/pause/skip are also supported, of course--just like non-AppLink sync.

is Sync VersionGen1 - V4.1.2.F the latest version of Sync available? I got a '13 SE and the manufacturer date was 8/9/12. Also when I first got the car it understood every name in my phone book when I asked it to call, but recently if I give a command, it won't understand about half the names in my phonebook now......any ideas why?

Except in manufacturing so far they have not updated sync G1 on these cars, mine is at 3.x.x but has not had an update made available since it was built 4/23/12 so don't count on software updates period never mind the fact that they keep screwing up MFT.

I have MFT so I don't know much about regular Sync. Is there a way to verify that the names it won't understand have been uploaded in Sync?
