iPhone 6 always resets music when using Bluetooth in car?

i love to listen to my music on my phone through my car's bluetooth when driving. in fact, it's all i listen to. i play it on shuffle, almost 4,000 songs. it starts from song 1 and keeps going, shuffling, never playing the same song twice.

now, or more recently, it will reset and go back to 1 again for no particular reason. it happens when i update my iOS, which i kinda understand. but, when it randomly resets to 1 and plays songs i recently heard, it bugs me. i can only get to maybe 100 songs before it will reset again.

anyone know why or have a fix so i can just play my music 1 through 4,000, have it never reset and never hear the same song twice?

thanks in advance for any help.

Re: iPhone 6 always resets music when using Bluetooth in car?

It doesn't fix the underlying issue but as a workaround you can put your entire library in a playlist and have the car play it at random. What's the year, make and model of the car.

I have practically the same car (2013) but use the USB port the same way you use Bluetooth. Over USB it runs through my library without resetting but I have an older iPod (with iOS 9) that I keep in the car. There was a service bulletin for my car but I think yours would have it from the factory.

On a side note if you are using Bluetooth google how to turn "flat on" through the diagnostic menus. It improves the audio

For models with touch screen:
Steps:
Press Nav + Menu + Back 3 seconds (or Power + Disp + Bac if non-nav)
The 2 screens will display debug menus you should not have access normally
Press return on the touch screen one (you don't need it)
Press Menu for 3 seconds
You will be in the developer menu
Scroll down to DSP/AMP settings
Scroll to 'Flat' set it to 'On'

It will not mess anything up plus it is reversible. It makes the music sound better over Bluetooth. For my model year there was a differences difference between music played over USB and Bluetooth. The wireless sound was terrible. This makes the Bluetooth playback on par with USB. The Drive Accord Forum has other people's experiences for reference.

I never even use the touchscreen. Barely even noticed it, but not sure I have those options. Do like a good sound though...

Ummm...maybe take it off shuffle and start playing from song #1?

Just an idea.

That will play the songs in alphabetical order not random. If you have a lot of classical music or live concerts you will hear same/similar things. I love PJ but don't want to hear all ten versions of Alive in my collection back to back to back.

ok, Kdogg...did it. didn't really notice a difference when i went back and forth, but only listened for a few seconds. however and i read this on a forum you sent me to, it defaults back to "off" when the car shuts off and then back on.

anyway to keep the setting to "on"?

You know I read that years ago but never had it reset until I changed my battery.

Check for a service bulletin on the Honda site. Like I said mine had a dealer required audio fix. Honda also offer a Siri hand free software update but I never got it.

Re: iPhone 6 always resets music when using Bluetooth in car?

Weird, my Windows phone just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I keep mine on shuffle almost all the time, but everytime I boot up Music the first song is always the same.

Re: iPhone 6 always resets music when using Bluetooth in car?

My iphone playlist seems to reset if i use the phone for other audio apps between drives. If i dont do anything with the phone, it seems to remember where i left off.

(i have a 2016 honda crv that my iphone 6 connects to via bluetooth)

Re: iPhone 6 always resets music when using Bluetooth in car?

This problem is so annoying. Forget about opening iTunes or even the App Store. Always resets on those. When it goes off, I can keep the shuffle going by opening iTunes and pressing play, but then I would have to keep the iTunes app open all the time because if I close app, it will reset. Can't believe there is no simple fix...

Re: iPhone 6 always resets music when using Bluetooth in car?

It does the same thing on my Honda Civic. I also have an iPhone 6. It doesn't seem to reset if I use the USB port to listen to music instead of bluetooth. Although I haven't tried it enough times. I also think it has to do with something they did on one of their iphone updates because it did not do this when I first got the car.
