Thanks for the quick reply. I don't believe in coincidences, especially if this is the first time you've seen that message.

AFAIK, I've never intentionally clicked Update Services.

I still get this. It only happens when I first start the car. It's usually gone within 10-15 minutes.

I have no idea what "updating the services in connected drive screen" even means, so I doubt...

Interesting. So it has a purpose. Now if I could just figure out why it's showing up for me? I've never used the call buttons.

I'm sorry you had problems, but that's no reason to tell the rest of us not to do it. I just upgraded last week, and I ran into a problem (of my own doing, it turned out). I received replies within...

Correct. And that's an option. I am not up on the "state of tires" these days, and if there are better options, I'd love to hear about them.

But I have no issues with my current ones, which sadly...

I'm not sure why we would have differences, but in MP3s where I've manually inserted artwork (most use the internal Gracenote db), I use 300x300 JPGs. No problem. Ever.

I don't use iTunes. I just have a folder on my PC called MP3, and an extensive sub-folder network underneath it, that has all my music. I copied that to a stick drive, and that was all I had to do.

Album art comes from the internal Gracenote database, or it can come from Tag Fields in the music files themselves.
