iPhone 5 and BT/GPS

The new 6.1 update fixed the ongoing problem with my iPhone 5 and my Garmin GPS. Before incoming calls would come through to the BT headset for a few seconds then get transferred back to the phone from the BT connection on the GPS.

Now the connection is solid. I am using the GPS on my motorcycle so I couldn't grab the phone and make any changes with gloves on...

Also—when the Bluetooth is connected, that "airplay" icon lights up orange. The use of orange in a UI from Apple seems odd—but it looks nice! I noticed the new music controls right away because I stream music over Bluetooth to the Aux-In on my car and use these controls every day. The orange really stood out to me. Perhaps a hint of what's to come in iOS 7? Attached is a screenshot of me connected to my Apple TV with no music playing.

New song title layout?

I can't remember but didn't the song listing have the time listed in another column beside the name? I see it's right below the name now.

am I the only one that is bothered by this?
I have actually thought about that before, but they also function as search if you hold down the button. So I guess it's OK...

Also, has the "Finished" button always been there in Panorama mode?
I thought you were forced to finish the shoot before you got a picture.

update is nice but not worth point one update, that too so many months gone in it. it deserve to be 6.0.3 at the most. imo.

Does anyone's keyboard feel faster? It finally has the responsiveness of pre iOS 4 for me. There are less simultaneous key pop ups and the feeling of lag. It overall feels more responsive.

I still wish they would split the keyboard in landscape mode. It's a bit too centred for the iPhone 5's height.

Wrong, YouTube requested Jase (creator of Jasmine/Alien Blue) to remove automatic background audio. Manual background audio worked fine in 6.0.x. Now background audio using Safari/webview is broken.
