I had two trips last night. For both trips the BT connected quickly, and the podcast app started and played correctly. I use Overcast for a Podcast app.

I have not -- is that the way to turn off accessories? I'll give that a shot.

Overall, I think the BT connectivity is flaky at best. If I'm using the podcast app through the car, then leave the...

I have a related issue/question. My 2014 usually works the way you describe. Trouble is, if I exit the car and don't lock it, the phone will see the BT and kick the audio to the car even when I'm...

It turned out the car was under 1/4 tank, so I dumped in about 16 oz, and filled the tank. Then I had a lovely 25 minute drive up and down 35E.

We shall see what the future brings. I will...
