First off....the IPOD works just great in this car. I'm really impressed, the hookup was seamless.<p>But....I found that when I play a "playlist", and I set the playlist to randomly play the songs....if I switch to another playlist, the control goes back to playing consecutive songs, not random songs....and I have to go back in and reset to random in the setup.<p>Am I missing something? I seem to recall someone else mentioning this in a previous thread.

Re: XC70 IPOD interaction (BarentsBlueV50)

This is normal.<p>I'd love it if you could use the keypad to search for a song or even navigate long lists much more quickly like an indexed phonebook on a connected phone. If I want to play an artist whose name begins with S, it takes a long time to scroll down...<br>

Re: XC70 IPOD interaction (Surf NH)

ok, at least I understand it correctly. Its not a big deal, but certainly not as easy as directly controlling things on the iPod....

When I want to hear Bob Seger, I navigate to the artist menu then scroll <B>UP</B>. This kicks the scroll to the end of the list and scroll from there. Very useful for Seger, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Muddy Waters...

Re: XC70 IPOD interaction (BarentsBlueV50)

yeah, I got that. Doesn't help for "M" though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>In general Volvo should consider keeping their interfaces consistent. If I can look up names in my phone address book by doing a search, it'd follow that I should be able to browse lists similarly.<p>Here's an iPod question for you: if, when playing a connected iPod in your Volvo, you are listening to one album by an artist and you want to listen to another album, is there any way to "back" up a navigational level, or do I have to again find the artist, then find the album?<p>I realize I can just find the album, but the question is a generic one: is there any way in Volvo's control scheme to move "up" a level in the ipod hierarchy?
