Has anyone notice the car make a static noise when you first put car in gear, mine does and it does it when I get a text message and my phone connected to the USB
As I said it was a theory.ObewanKenobi,
They have replaced my USB ports for this reason and it still happens. Doesn't matter what kind of phone according to the service center my car is currently at. They have tried multiple.
I did notice that when listening to the radio (AM/FM), when I shift into reverse and the backing camera comes on, I get 1-2 seconds of static.
Because it integrates with the backup camera system in all of todays cars and there was a previous issue with the backup camera system that an update did resolve. Strange...but makes total sense.Just crazy when you think about it, why would putting your car in reverse have any affect on the radio?
This usually happens for me solely over Bluetooth. Every first time I go into reverse. I'm still running an old firmware version of the infotainment so that could be why. My phone isn't the best android out too so that's another variable.I have been reading about problems with the infotainment unit (or what ever you want to call it) now for quite a while and it seems to me that most people are having problems when they connect a phone via wire to the car.
I have only connected my phone to the car via bluetooth and have had no real problems with the electronics (I did have a problem with the Sirius forgetting all of my pre-set stations).
Theory; maybe the problem is with some people's phones?
