Mylink defaults to FM upon starting car
 
Mylink is defaulting to FM, even if I was playing music from the USB when I shut the car off. Can't find anything on this.

Rather annoying. I do not understand why it would not default to the source being used when the car was turned off last.

Mine does the same...anxious to hear from others

My car does as well and I do not have my link. I believe it has to do with the USB drive. There was another topic about this I saw a few days ago about people listening to music without the car on and then once they turn it on they have to unplug and replug in the USB device.

Don't think so...I can get out listening to xm and when I comeback , it's on FM...

Ya mine does the same

I have the same problem. Almost always if I was listening to my iPod via the USB port when the car was shut off it is on FM when I start up the next time. iPod isn't even available as an option then. I have to unplug the USB and plug it back in to get the system to recognize the iPod again. Annoying.

here's my *lousy* workaround for the problem you and I have..I don't want to keep unplugging and plugging the ipod or the usb in the car and wear them out. So I run an usb extension to hang out the center console so I can connect it here when I start the car. It then tucks back under when connected.

Thought about trying that. It aggregates me to have to resort to "rigging" something to fix it. Thanks.

totally agree...but until then I don't want my ipod socket and USB in the car worn out....

ipods or iphones........

bluetooth seems to work very well in my opinion

I just got my car tonight and noticed that it defaults to the home screen with all the icons. I was using a flash drive. But it did the same thing when I was listening to XM. Hope they get this fixed soon.

but what plays when you fire up the car?

Storm T 06-23-2013 12:28 AM

Oh, it's actually playing what I left off with. I'd just think it would go to that screen whether it be XM or USB or whatever. I haven't tried a CD yet. Pandora will be nice too.

Storm T: There's no CD Player if you have myLink
