As far as picking a song every time you go to ipod mode, I had the same frustration as you. I would recommend getting the audio/video cable and using that in aux mode. then use the ipod to control it. I understand you may feel this defeats the purpose of having the ipod mode and doing everything on-screen, but I was so damn pissed about the ipod control on the unit, I will never go back to that since I have been using the aux mode.
Yep, you cant make a product that is all things to all people.....the ipod steering wheel controls were my idea, I like the way they work, but I get plenty of comments from people who wish they just did track forward/back....everybody wants something different.

Im with TRBVNM on the ipod/aux in thing though, nobody has managed to make a control system that is as simple as the one that is on your ipod. I personally use the remote and the dynavins built in interface most of the time but I only make 2 trips a day in my car....if I made more stops and I had to reselect the songs every time, or if I were a "shuffle" type of listener, I would use the aux in and control from the ipod like TRBVNM is doing. Again, everyone has a different set of wants and needs, at least the Dynavin is fairly flexible, find the setups that work best for you.
