2012 Toyota Prius C: Jumpy iPod Playback

November 01, 2012

When listening to an iPod in our 2012 Toyota Prius C, the playback will, every so often, skip for a full second.

The elapsed time counter resets to zero and 9/10 the song returns to where it left off. The other time, it simply moves onto the next song.

I tried this with five i-devices (two iPhones, iPod, iPod nano touch, iPod mini) and it skipped with every single one of them. None of them have Toyota's silly iPod override Entune system installed and none of them ever will.
