I've got a 2011 S3 Black Edition with the AMI iPod connection in the glove box.
One thing is driving me quietly mental and it's this...
Sometimes the audio system will "remember" what it was playing last from the iPod and continue from where it left off when I next start the car or switch to the iPod.
Sometimes it won't. Then it defaults to the first entry in the Artists list and plays that. This happens to be, on mine, A. Garfunkel & P. Simon playing "My little town" from a S&G greatest hits album. Nothing wrong with that in itself but now I swear quietly everytime I hear the intro because that means I have to navigate back to what was meant to be on.
Now, it's not a big deal, I know that. No-one is ill, no-one died, it costs no cash.
BUT - I can't work out the logic.
Sometimes I can go for days or even a week and it will remember where it was. I've recently discovered (at the ripe old age of 45) the world of trance mixes and podcasts that can be up to 3 hours long, so when it remembers where it was, that's a Brucie Bonus.
Sometimes it goes through periods where it defaults back to good old Art Garfunkel. I can, for example, be listening to the iPod as I'm cleaning the car, switch to the radio to get the footy scores and then switch back to music. It's forgotten! I'm in such a period now, hence my asking.
I always turn everything off before I switch the engine off (old habit) so the climate and audio, along with any anciliaries, go off.
I've tried switching to radio before killing the power.
I don't have an audio manual, so can anyone tell me if:
- the same happens to you or...
- you know the secret?
Best of all I'd love to know what the logic is. Either it should remember or default, not vary from one damn day to the next!
Any help much appreciated.
