  1. Yes, they said this is the first they've heard of it but they'll mention it to the regional rep. I was hoping someone elsewhere in the world (i.e. this group) would know more. Also, if Porsche doesn't know about the problem... how do we get this information to the right people?
  2. You guys have convinced me to start waving again. I gave it up a few years ago due to no responses, but summer's here and it's time to try again. I've also noticed it has diminished a lot on motorcycles, but I keep doing it there out of habit. Time to get the habit back while in the car :)
  3. Hi, I've got a 2006 Cayenne with the audio system that plays mp3's. I have two complaints about the "random" track seek feature and I wonder if anyone else has found a work-around or if there's a firmware upgrade to resolve the issues. Let's take the example where you've burned your own CD with 150 mp3 files on it... 1. It doesn't stay in random mode when you turn the car off and back on. It's quite a few button clicks each time you start up the car to put it back into random mode. 2. The random number generator isn't seeded (sorry for the computer geek speak). What this means is that it's the same "random" sequence each time you start the car... for example, you will get tracks 44, 52, 6, 10, 105, 72, etc. the first time you play. Then turn off and on the car, go back to random track mode, then notice that it plays EXACTLY THE SAME SEQUENCE (i.e. 44, 52, 6, 10, 105, 72, ...). Your numbers will be different of course (probably depends on the number of tracks on your disc), but they'll be the same each time you play that disc. Hardly what I call random. Does anyone know if Porsche is aware of these problems and if so, do they have a firmware upgrade which resolves them?
