2012 Ford Explorer: A Little Confused

June 27, 2012

No, the cast of Glee has not recorded The Godfather theme. Our MyFord Touch has been updated recently but I've been experiencing some wackiness. I don't usually pair my phone to a car. But I do like to connect my iPod.

When my iPod started to play, it sounded all warbly. Have you ever spoken into a rotating fan? We used to do that when we were kids and it would chop the sound of your voice. That's what this sounded like. I had to unplug and replug it several times before it played normally. This happened last night and again this morning.

Then when I used the seek button to fast forward through songs (like the moment when I realized I still had the Glee cast on my iPod), the song updated but the performer did not. This happened repeatedly. As you can see in the picture below, the display near the gauges was correct but the display on the nav screen was not.
