So - - I don't suppose anyone here has a VW with an iPod adapter in it? I just bought a Passat with this wonderful feature. It really is amazing that VW and Apple have managed to create a system that befuddles even one with an advanced degree in Mathematics. There is simply no rhyme or reason with which the stereo plays the playlists. If you're thinking about it - be careful as you cannot browse albums and artists.. only play playlists that have already been set up. I'm just trying to get my head around how it plays the stuff. Anyone? Even internet searches on the subject turn up bubkus. But FWIW, I *love* my Passat.
