There is a problem with my blue and me media player.

Yesterday when i refreshed the songlist in my flashdrive and plugged it in. it refused to update the songlist.

i tried unplugging and plugging but still it refuses to add the newly added tracks.

But the older songs plays well and is still in the list

any workaround?

Change the date in your system to < 2010 say 2008 and run it again.
Once you finish it,Set Autoplay ON in your car and insert USB and you will get all tracks.

time for change of bulb.
Ashwin, a silly question !

Do you feel the stock headlights inadequate ( i too feel so !!!) because you have installed the front windshield sunfilm (3m CR70) with 70 percent visibility ?

I remember reading somewhere that the Linea windscreen is tinted to cut down on UV rays and has only 70% visbility. Does this mean that after installing sunfilm, the front winsheild visibility is only 49 percent ?? It may be a stupid question but does it not also sound logic ??

Too much thinking

Mate it is 70%transparency mate. linea and all cars have 70% windscreens and when you put the same 70% transparent sunfilm it allows the same amount of light inside.

Only if you put lesser transparent film the visibility will come down!!

Your brains are working over time is it??

Update

Have installed Garmin XT Mobile GPS on my Nokia N82 and it works very fine. I just tried the navigation today on my mobile and it is fantastic with great detailing.

So it is going to be heaps of fun hereafter driving linea with GPS assisted mobile

And more fun as everything is free !!!

It saves me 11k from buying a GPS navigation !!! And the wifey is pleased too as it saves her money too

I tried navigation yesterday and WOW what a detailing and navigation support. It gives directions and even recalculated the route if we overshoot the marked route.

It give the speed at which the car was travelling. My linea speedometer showed 60kmph and the GPS showed 58kmph correspondingly. i guess 2kmph difference can be a standard deviation +or -

But it is really fun.

The only sorepoint is that Blue and me doesnt support voice navigation. so the voice direction is announced only when the blue and me is disconnected.

But what ever it is really worth the effort

Would you please provide the details of the GPS device (the make, specifications, etc) and the cost. Thanks
