Traffic alerts

Post by 2Many_Cats » Fri Oct 11, 2019 6:00 pm

Relatively new XE owner, and loving it, mostly. However, I cannot for the life of me work out how to get audio streaming to resume after traffic alerts end or are cancelled. Going back to the audio screen to resume playing every time is a right royal PITA.

I’m hoping that Apple CarPlay, when installed, will be a marked improvement but until then...

This is with InControl Pro btw.

TIA

I only have the basic infotainment but the traffic reports shut off and the radio continues (when I have it on)

Indeed, when listening to the radio, the system returns to the original station once the traffic announcement is over, or it is cancelled. However, when listening to streamed music from my phone, it doesn’t resume playing.

It depends on the radio station sending out some sort of "end of TA" signal
If it doesn't, the car radio will assume that all this is part of the TA.

Indeed, the RADIO resumes as one would expect, whether the TA ends or I cancel it (which I normally do, because I'm not concerned with delayed trains).

However, if I'm streaming music from my phone when the traffic announcement ends - whether by the station sending out the end code, or I cancel it manually, the STREAMING does not resume. It remains paused.

I've not tried a CD or USB media yet...
