    Have upgraded audio and since delivery have noticed "static/drop outs" when listening to USB/FLAC hi-def songs.

    It appears to be much worse when I'm running nav and audio in split screens and traveling at higher rate of speed. When I switch to only audio screen (with nav/destination still running in background) problem mostly goes away.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Yes, that and it also seems like the UHFS audio wires must be inadequately shielded as cellular activity from my iPhone 5s starts making RFI audible on the speakers. It seems to be worse when the phone is in the center console cubby, which makes sense assuming some of the audio wires probably start close to there from the sound chip and go to the amps elsewhere.
