Has anyone had any luck getting podcasts to play (from an iPod)? I have several that I like to listen to on long drives, but the system seems to not know what to do with them. To the extent of, trying to play a podcast renders the music system unusable until you shut down the car and power it back on.

Has anyone else seen issues like this? (Does anyone else listen to anything other than the engine? :D )

(EDIT: apparently the larger HD based iPods aren't supported, removed the latter portion of my post)

The current system has trouble changing sample rate, and many podcasts have different sample rates than the music played from your ipod. Only way to get it to work right now (the problem is fixed in Iris), is to start playing it on your iPod BEFORE plugging in to your car.

Sweet! Good to know that it's fixed. Thank you much for the work-around.

I listen to almost nothing but podcasts (if indeed not listening to the engine) on some longer drives especially and never ever had an issue. The ones I listen to are always downloaded via I tunes. Been good as gold so far.

I only download the podcasts as well. Haven't tried to play them yet. Still using a hard drive with stale music. Sure wish these things had satellite radio.
