Ipod disconnecting

Post by franko666 » Fri May 17, 2019 3:32 pm

This has been an issue now since i got the car new in 2017. Ipod connected via usb in armrest, and works fine for a couple of days, then disconnects, and you cannot find it in the source button in the car.
The only way to reconnect is to take the ipod out, plug it back in, and start the car the next day.
i have a new ipod using the original apple cable.
Another issue is that I normally i listen to itunes audiobooks, but lately when you start the car it now jumps back to music.
Driving me nuts.
Any ideas?

Is the problem your iPod or the car? I use an old (5 year old) iPod connected via usb in the arm rest. It works fine. Occasionally the system loses the connection but it is only caused by the iPod freezing. A quick reboot of the iPod and everything is fine.

With ICT Pro this was a nightmare when new three years ago. Got better and more reliable with each software update.

Tried the Ipod in my wife's C4 Catcus for over a week and all was fine.
The car is going in for a service next week, so maybe a software upgrade (again) may fix it.
