A few of us here with the 2016 models (maybe even 2015) experienced the problem of the USB stick playing automatically upon vehicle startup even though the last item used was the radio, Bluetooth, or XM. My GM dealer tells me that there has not been any firmware updates for my vehicle. I have the guidance option that comes with the 3.6L. Curious if any of the 2017 owners here have the same problem? I have to remove my USB stick with my music library when I shut the vehicle down if I do not want to hear the same playlist start playing every time I start the vehicle.

I had a 2014 without Navigation and I do not recall having this issue with that vehicle. But then I had a CD player and did not use the USB as often in that vehicle.

Same thing happens on my 2016 Terrain with NAV. It's because the Terrain loves my music selection so much that it can't resist playing it. The symptom is a tribute to your good taste in music.

Just goes to show how far GM is from the buying Public and there love for the CD player.

Just how many millennials have the money to buy a $35000.00 Auto.

GM Wake-up, you might as well be back in the 1920's and have H. Ford running your Company.

I took my Equinox in for the first of two free oil changes last week before I switch over to Mobil 1. I asked the service writer to check the USB stick issue. I have the latest firmware for the console and the USB still starts up right away even though I was previously listening to FM or XM. Just an annoyance is what it is. GM must not want to correct the software code as these head units are technically obsolete compared to the other GM models.
