    A gripe of mine is the auto playing of my iPhone either via bluetooth or the USB connection through the Entune Audio system.

    If I plug my iPhone in and start the truck to pull out of the drive, by the time I get out it is trying to play the first "A" song, even though I never turned the audio on or intended for it to play. I just like to charge my phone.

    Or even if I get in the truck and am not plugged in, and turn on the radio, the bluetooth will start connecting and override what I was listening to, requiring me to switch sources again.

    Anyone know how to make that stop or if there is an update available?

    Good luck on trying to find a fix for this. I have been reading countless websites and forums trying to get this changed. It is annoying as crap. Toyota needs to get this entune problem fixed and push out a patch for it. SOON!

    Just plug your phone into the 12 volt outlet not the USB if you just want to charge .
    I wish mine would play that quick .
    I have nothing but trouble with my entune , I plug my phone in and sometimes It says loading for littery 5 minutes . By the time it connectes and the iPod starts playing I'm normally almost at my destination .

    Entune is trash ... Shouldn't of been released into the vehicles yet . Its a joke

    + 1 on the pissed and annoyed. if i want to listen to am/fm/xm and get in my car, set the source and stations and go, sometimes i have it autoswitch twice, once because its plugged in and sourced as "ipod" and then after i switch sources again, it will decide it wants to play bluetooth and i have to do it again! Is it the untune or iphone issue? I dont want to disable bluetooth because its great for Siri/telephone when driver but damnit let ME pick my source or at least be able to turn off that feature.

    There are even some aftermarket head units that will start playing the first song (alphabetically) in the Music app when iPhones are plugged in. I hate it too. The only "solution" I know of on my Sony head unit is to not have any songs in my Music app.

    I'm having this annoying problem too. Iphone plugged in to usb allowing charging and streaming xm radio. Incoming call on the blue tooth so I stop the xm radio to take the call. As I'm talking on the phone via bluetooth the iphone starts playing music in alphabetical order over my conversation. I'm yet to find a free fix.

    Good luck man... So far I still haven't found a fix. What pisses me off is that I have my iPod constantly plugged into the USB. So thats not the issue. What the issue is when the damn iPhone syncs with the truck it automatically switches to Bluetooth. If I wanted bluetooth I would have selected it. For the love of god, c'mon toyota fix this damn problem.

    Sorry to hear about your problems. I don't have any problems with my android phone :D doing that. It does act a little funky sometimes. It's like it has a mind of it's own. Sometimes, when I switch the audio to bluetooth, it will autoplay just fine. More often than not though, I have to manually start the music on my phone and it will then stream. The neat thing is that it will also stream my amazon prime music :cool:

    Yeah, I haven't heard much problems with people with Android phones. I have a feeling its a feature that is in apple products. It does the same thing when I when I sync it to my helmet. I have a chatterbox bluetooth on my helmet and the phone starts auto playing, or tries to.

    I haven't used an iphone in a long time, but are there music apps you can use instead of the stock app? From what I read briefly on google, it stems from the stock music app that apple uses. Although, I don't know how you would import music to your phone without itunes unless you have it jailbroken (if people still do that?).

    From what I'm readingon other sites,
    To stop the USB auto play:
    There is no way to change the setting of the USB port on the phone without connecting it to another device. In this case you can connect it to your PC, the USB notification pops up, scroll the notification bar down, selected the USB notification, and then selected Charge Only.
    The only problem I see with this (keep in mind I have not tried it yet) is what happens if you do want to play music through you phone hooked up to USB?

    I think its crap that when its playing the "A" list songs, you can't even get an Artist list search. Just Genre or Composer or Playlist. So if Im looking for a group name I don't have much luck.

    I'm definitely going to try this... I only use my phone to stream Pandora, either through bluetooth or plugging it in and using the interface. Too much junk on my phone, no room for storage!
