Hello,

Device: GROM-USB2-VAG with bluetooth
Car: 2008 Audi A4
Radio: Symphony (In-dash 6-CD MP3 changer) (Non-Bose)

I recently purchased GROM-USB2-VAG with Bluetooth dongle and I am really satisfied with sound quality of bluetooth A2DP, iPod & iPhone connectivity in Simple Mode (haven't had chance to test it with Advanced Mode)

But following are issues I found with the device:
    - I created a USB with two playlists and changed mode to USB and after sometime first song starts playing, but when I tried to change to next tract it was stuck and I am not able to do anything, not able to change mode. my phone connects to bluetooth but I am not to hear anything, from what I see in the forum it seems like this will be solved by reconnecting the main plug. I am waiting for my radio removal tools to come by mail to test it until then I am back to my normal disks.
    - My Car is playing normal disks when I ignition was turned off. And I enter my car next time while taking a call (my phone connects to bluetooth and audio is routed to GROM unit) but when I press the CD changer button nothing happens as if there are no CD changer connected to the unit.
    - While I am on call with bluetooth audio and decide to get out of the car and change the mode to phone from bluetooth and get out of the car, call gets disconnected.
    -I was not able to see TEXT display of song being played either from iPod or 1 song that was played from my USB


I recently ordered my device so I am not sure which firmware I have latest one on the website is v27 (didn't get chance to install it since it wont work until I reset it by disconnecting main plug)

Thanks,
Sambi

Update 7/26:

I received my radio removal keys and I tested few scenario's and following is what I observed:


    - While playing through USB don't do anything (next track, previous track, FM/AM button or remove USB stick)
    - Do not trun on your car while USB is plugged in.


If I do any of the above things I have to remove the head-unit and reset the GROM unit.

It just feels like I got GROM-I3-VAG with a permium price of extra 30 bucks.
