2 Issues with the stereo..
 
They are minor but...

1) "Random" Play does not save after a re-key. Every time you stop/start your car, you have to put RANDOM play back on as it doesn't save. Slightly annoying... I want shuffle play on ALL the time.

2) When you start the car up and play a song (from USB flash drive) ...sometimes it displays the wrong song name.... even counts down as if it were that song but it's not. Moving on to the next song fixes the issue.

Wish they woulda fixed these.... :iono:

1. annoying oversight. I plan on using a USB drive on shuffle pretty much all the time so this will definitely affect me. oh well.

2. LOL @ legit bug.

Maybe they'll release a firmware update to fix this kind of stuff?

That would be nice...wonder how that would be installed? Through USB port maybe?

Bootable via flash drive? Hmmm....

Noticed this also.

But my big complaint is to why it always switches to USB even if I was on FM or XM last time I drove :iono:

I dislike the fact that if you're playing by artist, it forgets that as well. Also I hate how you can't scroll through the menu's with the wheel controls! All fixed with a simple firmware update... which I hope they do!

I dislike it will not play songs that have been gotten from Napster. I have a Creative Zen X-FI and have to use the headphone jack. On USB it see's the songs but will not play them.

Blame that on Napster. The songs are DRM protected and cannot be played without the proper licenses.

Red Hot SS 06-03-2009 09:22 AM

wait is this illegally downloaded songs all together or just napster songs?

Hylton 06-03-2009 09:40 AM

The best way to grab songs is to use a software which records everything that runs through your soundcard. The drag is that you have to play them to record them but you will not have any playback issues.

Yeah, my wife hates that too, since she does not like the songs on my Zune.

The one problem I am having is it will not recognize my playlists.

BackinBlackSS/RS 06-03-2009 10:01 AM

Yeah having to select shuffle each time is a pain. Also i've noticed that sometimes when the next song comes on the display shows the last song and the timer is no longer counting. I'm still hearing the music, but I cannot see or change anything. It's like the display locks up, but music still playing. Might be a problem with the individual songs. Untill an update comes out I have switched over to my MP3 player. Works and sounds great, just not quite as convenient as the USB flash.

With a little computer know how, you can reformat all of those songs so that they can play.

Also, why is nobody mentioning the awesomeness of streaming your songs to the radio? I have a Blackberry and I keep almost 1,000 songs in their at any given time and I just stream them straight to the radio. This way shuffle works all the time because I set it up on my phone, rather than in the car...

As far as the OP's complaints go...

1) It's a one button fix. Don't be lazy, just press shuffle when you get in the car. It honestly takes about a second to do.

2) Bug, no doubt. I'm sure Panasonic will have an update for it soon.

Napster is now a legal form of downloading music. It may not have started that way, but now it is. Don't get the two confused.

But yes, pretty much everything downloaded illegally will work in the Camaro, but when it comes to music purchased and downloaded legally, you're taking pot-luck on whether the Digital Rights Management attached to that song will allow it to be played in your Camaro.

Croathlete 06-03-2009 01:00 PM

It's pretty funny that all illegally downloaded songs have no problem playing in pretty much any player, but people who download their songs legitimately get screwed over with DRM and such.

CamaroHutch 06-03-2009 03:14 PM

There are many programs available that will remove the DRM protection from your music.

It makes perfect sense when you think about it. Nobody would want to illegally trade songs with DRM when they can trade songs without it. The reason the files get pirated is because they'll always work.

As for me, I still buy CD's, rip them, and convert them to mp3's. No Napster or Itunes for me. No shadowy far-off forces can mess with my physical discs.

Oh thats a punch in the balls I was figuring on using my iRiver in my car.. guess not anymore....

etrigan 06-03-2009 06:58 PM

I've got just the opposite problem...

I'm using a Samsung T10. If I play an album and I shut the car off and back on, the last song will come back up but after that one it shuffles automatically. The suffle feature on the T10 is off and random is off on the car.

So, in other words, shuffle/random is on all the time by default.

Maybe the T10 is your fix, embalmer.

Jferrell88 06-03-2009 08:07 PM

I have no problems at all, When i can get my ipod to connect!! half the time it wont connect i just unplug and plug until it works or i give up

2010SSRS 06-03-2009 08:52 PM

it is annoying that with every restart it jumps to the USB IF one is plugged in, but my irritation is that my itouch ONLY shuffles randomly. i can't get it to do anything else! and the itouch itself becomes disabled in functionality. the infotainment system is it's only controller.

also, i skip thru about 5 songs before it won't skip anymore.......just plays. when this happens, the display isn't counting and is showing the wrong album and song..........maybe i just ain't figured it out yet!

my AT&T Samsung Impression syncs and works beautifully in Bluetooth from a phone stand point. i just hate to use it in Bluetooth for music because that will kill the phone function.

I don't think its shuffling, I think its just playing the songs in alphabetical order by song name (not artist or album) once the car is turned back on. It does remember what song you were on, it just does not remember the playlist you were using....
