I have a 2011 terrain with the nav. Every once in awhile, after my car has been shut off, when I turn it back on, the info for the ipod comes up, the navi says it is playing, but there is no sound?? It reads the ipod because all the tracks come up, but it doesn't play the music...it only happens every once in awhile, and if I reset my ipod, it works fine. It's an ipod touch by the way.

I had a ipod interface in my old camry, and it never had this problem that the terrain is having

I'll plug in my ipod tonight and see if there is a firmware update. I'll let you know what happens.

Is there a place to check if there is any firmware updates for the GMC navigation/Hard Drive system?

killing the power to any usb device while it is running can cause data corruption. i always turn the power off to the radio or switch to a different source than usb before turning the car off. never had a problem doing it this way. just a suggestion.

I'm going to try that from now on.

My ipod was up to date, but I just restored it, so I'll see how that goes. I'll keep you updated

I've found that, when it gets especially cold, my iPod thinks it has no battery power until it warms up a bit, even if it's powered by the USB connection in the car. When it finally starts up again, it forgets where it was and restarts playing the first song alphabetically.

We don't use our iPod in the Nox....we got a 4 gb memory stick (flash drive) and loaded the mp3 songs on it and just leave it plugged in the USB port. It works great and that way we don't have to keep moving the iPod from car to home and back. I call it my "iStick" .

Being an iHater myself, I'd prefer this option, but then I'd lose my audiobooks, and then I'd fall asleep at the wheel during my commute...

In my 2010 with iPhone there is a 'disconnect usb' option which then closes all links and makes the iPhone and GMC both happy. See if there isn't a disconnect feature in your iPod menu button.
