    Just an FYI for all y'all.
    I had an annoying thing happen today. The sound out of my MS speakers started dropping every 10 seconds for about 2 seconds. Didn't matter if it was XM, FM, From my Bluetooth Phone...drove me nuts. Also Slacker and Tunein would not play. LTE was working fine. I tried usual reboots of touchscreen and dashboard, and even tried a power off from touchscreen. After all that failed, I did this:
    1. Parked the car
    2. Powered off the dashboard first.
    3. After it came back up, I powered off the touchscreen.

    This is the ONLY order that worked. Everything is ok again, Slacker and Tunein work. No more dropped sound every 10 seconds.

    Update to sound dropping out and the above. Eventually I could not reboot my main touchscreen. Had it serviced, got a new touchscreen and MCU. Just so folks know what eventually happened.
