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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
