    I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this or not? Ever since upgrading to iOS 4.1 on my iPhone 4 everytime I connect my iPhone 4 to my Pioneer AVH-P3200BT car stereo via USB there is alot of static every few seconds. It sounds like a scratched cd. I have tried everything to fix it including switching USB cords, resetting stereo and iPhone, turning off bluetooth, pairing Bluetooth before connecting, and none of these methods fixed the static. I think it's a bug in the USB audio out for iOS 4.1.

    same here

    I have been having the exact same problem with my Pioneer 1120 AV home receiver when plugging into the USB. iOS4.1 is definitely the culprit as I have another iPod touch running 4.0.2 with the same music files and it is fine.

    I called Apple and they just say to mail it in and they will repair it or replace. Of course then I will be without it for 2-3 weeks. The guy I spoke to has not heard of that problem yet but I emailed him links to other sites with similar user comments.

    Here are some other sites that have people with similar issues.





    I recommend leaving feedback with Apple, if enough people submit they will take note:

    I already left feedback with Apple, it is really annoying that this is happening. Hopefully they will recognize this and issue a software update VERY soon for this.

    I agree!

    I mean, a iPod/iPhone should still play music correctly - right? That's what they were originally designed to do!

    I have my 4.1 iPhone hooked up to my Scion Pioneer stereo and it's working fine. Strange though, that 4.0, 4.0.1, and 4.0.2 did not work with my stereo at all and it was fixed in 4.1.

    My iPhone 4 exhibits the same problem with my Alpine CDA-117. I was thinking that maybe the next update will resolve this issue.

    My 3GS did not experience this however.

    I have a similar problem with my Sony GT-310UI (i think thats the model#)
    Every few minutes, it'll crackle once or twice for a second... I'm sure it does it more often, but the music is so loud and I'm so focused on driving that I drone it out.

    It is a minor problem, but nonetheless a problem. My iPod Touch 2G didn't do this, now all of a sudden I hear it.

    edit: I am NOT on 4.1.... 4.0.1 (noticed it since 4.0)

    Same issue on our BMW connected through USB. Hope the fix comes sooner than 4.2. Can't play music at all now.

    static problem

    I'm having the same issue with my Pioneer MVH 8200. Can't even listen to it now. At least I have my 3GS as a backup, but hate having to carry two phones.
