2013 Lexus GS 350: The High Cost of Art

September 10, 2012

2013 Lexus GS 350

Throughout the weekend I was beset by the irritating message shown above. When I'd go to skip a track on my iPod, I'd get the "Data is being acquired from iPod. Please wait..." warning and the current song would continue to play. The thing is, my iPod was plugged in for quite some time and the system should have had ample time to acquire said data.

This morning, however, I noticed that little data loading symbol where the album artwork should be. "Hmmm," I thought. I waited until the artwork appeared, then tried to skip a track. Voila! Time after time, I tested this with the art loading and loaded with consistent results.

The fix? I went into the menus and disabled the album artwork display. Now I can skip to my heart's content (now there's a visual you might struggle to get out of your head).
