2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Remembers
June 09, 2011
Sometimes, I put aside the show tunes and plug in the iPod Touch. Last night, I chose "Songs" then "Shuffle" then plugged in my iPod. The Outlander's audio system started playing all of my songs alphabetically. This seemed appealing so instead of fiddling with it, I let it play. You get a very interesting mix of music when you start with songs that begin with the letter A. And boy, do I have a lot of As.
When I got home about an hour later, I was still in the early stages of B. It was playing "Ben" by Michael Jackson, of which I have two versions. (It's not repeating in the picture.) I unplugged my iPod. Later than night, I was listening to a specific album on my iPod and had it hooked up to my speakers in the house.
Next morning, I connected my iPod to the Outlander and again chose "Songs" and "Shuffle." I expected it to start over and I was going to choose a different letter. I'm digging the whole alphabetical thing. It continued where it left off the night before, right in the middle of the Bs, and it was kind enough to start "Ben" over again. It remembered where I had left off even though I had used my iPod differently in between.
Also interesting, is the Outlander's audio system alphabetizes differently than my iPod. It skips songs that begin with articles such as "The" so "The Beautiful Strangers" and "The Best of Times" were skipped.
I'm not complaining, just making observations.
