Hello friends.
So I've recently purchased a 2013 XC90 and I'm having some trouble.
When using the Bluetooth connection to play audio there is some distortion and clicks that come along with the music. Works great on the USB cable.
I've tried everything. Took it to the dealer, researched endlessly online, fiddled with the EQ and balance, tried different bit rates. You name I think I've tried it.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks in advance!

I would say that you are limited by the bandwidth of bluetooth, the clicks are likely from interruptions in the communication (signals have to get there at the right time). The distortion probably has to do with bandwidth limitations, either on Ipod or radio side. Also there may be interference from other devices that is slowing down your stream.

Thanks Ray,

I turned off the Wifi on my IPhone 4 when in the car. This helped a lot. Although BT will never be perfect when it comes to audio connectivity.
