I'm having problems too but with sound quality. The audio is distorted and choppy now. I still have track info displayed onscreen and I'm able to change tracks via steering wheel. I have a 2012 GTI with the RNS315.
I updated to iOS 6 last night, and I lost support for AVRCP in my 2012 Jetta. I've got the RNS-315. AVRCP is what allows you to control the tracks with the steering wheel controls, as well as seeing song info on the display.
Anyone else having this issue? I called Apple, and they said my stereo would need a firmware update. Knowing VW, that will take 4-5 months to happen. I'm wondering though if it's just my version of the stereo, or if all of them have the same issue (RNS-315, RCD-510, RNS-510).
Let me know if you guys are having similar issues. Thanks!
Apple is full of it.
This IOS 6 bug is afflicting all sorts of OEM and aftermarket head units.
Reported on Ford, BMW, VW etc
Kenwood, Alpine, Pioneer, all have the same issue.
Not all models. The older Kenwood KDC X993 head unit in my TT is fine but the almost new one in my truck has reverted to basically play-back only. No text, no head unit control.
In addition a bunch of other things not related to vehicles like head-phones no longer work.
Can you imagine how many updates to all the different products out there would be needed?
It's obviously the OS, as nothing else has changed. Apple needs to own up and at least plan to fix it.
Apple really screwed this up. Here is the huge thread on Apple support. https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0
I have a Pioneer P8400BH and the same thing happened. Can still stream Bluetooth, but no longer have track control or data display on the head unit.
