Might try a different flash drive, using a Lexar 32GB nano drive now but got a PNY 16GB "normal" sized drive to test drive just to see if it matters.
I just like the tiny ones because you don't have to worry about breaking anything because of it sticking up in the console. If the full size 16GB works I'll get a 16GB nano, maybe it has to do with the size of it (capacity, not physical).
Thanks for the follow up.
I've tried several brands and capacities of flash drives, with the same unacceptable result--default to line-in on restart. I'm currently using a 32GB SanDisk Cruzer Fit (nano size), which I like because it's sits relatively flush. Very annoying to have to reset to USB input all the time.
When I got my car, I had the line-in default issue using my iPhone via BlueTooth, and called SYNC customer support, who told me this was something they did because people were having issues with it defaulting to BT even when no BT device was available. They told me I should use a USB flash drive and would have no issue. Wrong.
I've spoken to SYNC support several times and requested they file this as a customer complaint, and suggest you (and everybody else having the issue) do the same, to increase the probability of them fixing it.
