Hi All -- I used USB to connect my iPod to SYNC/MFT earlier today for the first time. (Just took delivery of the car on Monday). Everything works great. In fact, I've been fortunate not to experience any of the issues discussed on this forum. I do have a question,though -- I thought that once the music was indexed, etc., it "remained" on the car's computer and there was no need to connect the media device after that. Am I mistaken or am I missing a step along the way?
