The radio decides to index everything and jumble up all your music so it plays alphabetically from within all the folders. This is really annoying if you have albums that are meant to be listened to start to end (Pink Floyd Dark side of the moon). You can use the radio controls to navigate to the folder and play it that way, but what a hassle.

Now if I burn the files to CD, it plays like my kenwood DNX 7120 does in the other car and how I want it.

By the way, last time I was at the dealer they said they looked for stuff to update.

Oh and is there ever going to be an option for a glovebox light, and sunglass holder?
I had a similar issue, but was able to easily solve it. I got in touch with one of the programmers for the radio (codeman71) and found out that the indexing is done when the USB device is first plugged in or if there has been any changes to the amount of data on the device (add/remove music).

As for the order of the songs, it is based on the ID3 tags of the mp3s. I was frustrated as well when a filename would be something like "Pink Floyd - Sheep", but it would either not show up or be listed under "unknown artist" on the radio. Sure enough, the ID3 tags for the mp3s were incorrect. Be sure they are all the same as well as capitalization makes a difference.

Example: Having 2 MP3s with one as "Pink Floyd" and another as "pink floyd" will make 2 separate entries for Pink Floyd on the radio.

I had an iPhone previously and it worked perfectly with the setup. I now have Android (love it), but have to use it in UMS mode to simulate a USB stick. I'm working on an app for Android to mimic the functionality of the iPhone. When the iPhone/iPod is used, the device itself is piping the music to the radio unlike the Android/USB method where the radio directly reads from the media.

Also be aware that when using a USB stick with the radio, there is a 10,000 song limit.

I find the wire fits perfectly next to the handle and up over it so that the console doesn't pinch the wire. Able to slide it in and out a needed, too. When I go to shut the console, I just lift the wire above the release and then snap it all shut

My only annoyance is the electronic throttle, very little happens for the first 1/4 in when you press the gas pedal. Anyone else notice this?
Its like the first 1/4 in is almost like dead space or slack. Can this be tuned out by the dealer?

Pulling over to the side of the road to do this is a hastle and sometimes there is no place to pull over! Not really a gripe, but this would greatly enhance the driving experience!

Another thing is the location of the convertible switch. It feels and looks retarded to have to lift my right arm in the air and hold the switch until the top is completely up or down. Maybe there is a regulation somewhere about that? I don't know. The Mustang convertible has it in the same place too. (
) A better place would be near the steering wheel or center console somewhere.

I would say that it is an "almost" perfect car.
That camaro got wasted!

Bee's Top Ten Complaints.

10. Going outside to find that he is off killing Decepticons.
09. The new lust I have to get a supercharger.
08. The pollen collecting on the Bee in this fine weather.
07. Waiting for the first car show of the year.
06. The Bee not having a force field to deter people from touching the car.
05. The stares he gets from other people on the road.
04. The beastly sound of the new exhaust and CAI.
03. The ability to customize the Bee in multiple ways.
02. The Bee not cleaning himself ... he has the ability.

And my number one complaint is that no matter how much I try to drive slow he seems to pull my pedal to the floorboard!

Your DIC should also give you the estimated miles left, mine does and its a 2011.

- I don't like the fact how they did not include ECC in my 45th edition and only AC.
- I don't like the fact that it is so wide and hard to park in to my garage that is veeery tight!
- I don't like the fact that my Google Nexus phone cannot make calls or receive calls with the Bluetooth

It depends, evidently you have never driven yours until the gas level got down to where it gives you the message fuel range low... If you ever get it you better stop and get gas ASAP. Because you probably have less than 20 miles left in the tank.

When I am driving and trying to look at my speed and it tells me to drive careful because there could be ice, or when you turn lights on/off.
Worrying every 5 minutes if I locked my car when I know I did, or if someone has messed with it.

My auto window does the same thing. It even bounces every now and then.

Mine says fuel range low when the needle hits E
Never got it to take more than 16 gallons though. Crappy accuracy for a 19 gal tank

Really? I have put 17 in mine while it still was slightly above empty. I usually fill between 1/4 and 1/8 tank and its not unusual to put in 16 gallons at 1/8 tank.

My dad told me a story years ago about one of his guys coming into his office and explaining they had a problem, they couldn't keep with all the orders coming in. The lesson was there are good problems and bad problems...

When I looked at my door and saw the scratches from my Rolex where I had reached for my seat belt, I said "Eh, it's from my Rolex." And didn't worry about it. But frankly any plastic/ vinyl product I've used has just taken them right out and they don't show up anymore

I'd say that's more of a take the lead weights out of your shoe kind of problem

I have one of those pairs of shoes too, for some reason I always accidentally wear them on Thursdays which is our drag strip day

Major League annoys me, I have had 5 vehicles(Four Chevy's, one Harley) that were black and this is my last. I won't get another black or dark blue vehicle ever probably, but they look so good. I guess a black car sitting out in the son is like crack for, can't resist. I have 1000's of chips just like those pics on my sides
