I used latest version before release 30. USB mode used to change randomly to FM radio, but it happens a lot more often with version 30. Ver 30 has many nice features that I use, but it's quite irritating that mode keeps switching randomly from USB to radio mode.

I have to shut off the power for 20-30 sec, then power it back on and then go back to USB mode.

Any ideas? I have had this issue with all versions, everything works fine just randomly mode changes to FM radio. This is my second hardware unit for my 2004 BMW m3 with nav.

I checked the wires and reconnected them again and from hardware point of view I don't see any issues. My unit is still under warranty and I'm getting fed up with this. So I appreciate some good feedback.

Hi, I did try ver 31. The issue is still there. It happens a lot more after about 10 minutes of playback. It happened three times over a 20 min drive. Any ideas?

Thanks, I tried V 32 and it has not crashed for 30m it seems more stable. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully this is it.

Update, The first few days of playback it only crashed two times. Now it crashes (switches back to radio mode) once ever about 25-34m. So I would say it improved a little but still pretty irritating that the mode still switches.

Any ideas if there is a firmware that would help with this?
