Blue and me meltdown
« on: June 08, 2009, 09:23:50 pm »
Hi all, got my first flash drive yesterday and promply downloaded my music collection onto it and plugged it into the car.
Everything seemed perfect other than the, genre artist function not working too well, but I ve put this down to most of the songs being downloads :whistle: and possibly not containing all the relevant tags the blue and me requires.... I  set the system to shuffle and it seemed to be fine.

On starting the car tonight I found I could not skip tracks, and when attempting to access the voice command menu nothing happened and on further investigation the phone button will no longer work??? so it seems to be f*&^%ed

any ideas anyone??

    Try another stick with just a few tracks on if you have one.  If you don't, try shuffling the tracks around on it (delete a couple, add a couple) on your PC before re-inserting it.

    Re-insert it with the ignition off, turn the ignition on and give it time to rebuild its index before starting the engine or doing anything with the menus/phone.

    Let us know what happens.

    Cheers Alex, I'll give that a try tomorrow and see what happens... I've just started using the B&M so no doubt there'll be a few more posts :thumb: and I don't think my iPhone helps matters much though it does pair just no phonebook but that's another thread

    If nothing else works you will have to disconnect the battery -VE leade for a couple of minutes to do a full reset.  I have had to this a cople of times now.

    just no phonebook

    You may need to send your contacts individually via bluetooth like a fair few of the Nokia Smartphones have to.

    Make sure the car is left to rest for at least 20mins before disconnecting the battery. :-[

    Maybe the dealers should install a reset button in the dash like all computers have

    I also haveno idea why you have to leave it for 20 mins - I didnt (and it didnt seem to cause any problems)!

    You will only need to disconnect the -ve terminal, its a simple clamp and you dont need any tools.  Make sure you leave it for 5 mins or so and then reconnect.

    I loved blue & me in my Fiat 500. It's a sack of donkey s**** in my Abarth. How can the same system differ so much in terms of functionality between cars?

    Come on Joe, its not that good, but seriously, does your phone behave differently in the A500?
