    May be a repeat question, but is there a way to have the car default to using the bluetooth as the audio source when you start up? Every time I get in mine I have to either use the right thumb wheel or navigate through the touch screen to select my phone (iphone 5) as the audio source.

    And yes - I know it's super nit-picky, but I figured I'd ask.

    No way that I know of but it would be a very welcome option. I use the bluetooth almost exclusively.

    I have noticed it sometimes will start playing the album I was playing when I got out of the car. Had the car a year and it happened 8 -10 times. It must be haunted.

    I'd like this as well. I use an iPod Touch that I leave in the car for music. Sometimes it automatically starts playing where it left off, sometimes it will have the last song up but paused, sometimes I'll have to manually select the iPod Touch as the music source, and sometimes it won't even show the iPod Touch as a musical
    Bluetooth device.

    I haven't, yet, been able to decipher any rhyme or reason as to why it enters in a particular mode.

    I think it has to do with the phone. For instance, if use an app with audio or video it will trump what you just had been listening to
