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.

If they get the resume going, then it would just about fix the lack of ipod controls. The two biggest things they need to fix are the ipod software design and getting the phonebook to be listed on the unit. The more I use it, the more I see why we really need that working like Darkoz has been preaching. it is advertised as a feature and there are laws out there in certain places, Dynavin needs to do something about it.
different opinions, likes, dislikes, things they want, don't want, etc - yes but one common goal, I.E. to get in your car and play music instantly from the iPod while your Navi loads up

I can live with the controls and I agree the resume trumps the controls. With resume it would save me the time navigating thru menus, until I am ready to change things up. Don't forget about constant iPod charge. Those two would be my priority as far as the iPod interface is concerned.

AUX seems like a good way to get around but it doesn't charge?

I haven't used the BT enough but I did successfully stream music from my iPad thru it. The only problem is, the music plays thru the front driver side speaker just as if I were using the phone. It would be pretty awesome if it played properly thru all speakers. Is that the case for those of you streaming music from your phones?
