Installed the GROM USB/IPod kit....seems finicky

    Priddle [OP] And now for something completely different....

    St. John's, NL Canada
    2014 Tacoma 4x4 TRD Sport DCSB
    Current: Pelfreybilt front and rear bumpers, winch, icon front coils/shocks, Icon rear shocks, Dakar leafs, Camberg UCAs, Pumpkin Android stereo, custom sub box w/ 2x10" RF subs and Kicker amp, short shifter kit, Fuel Beast 18" wheels w/ 1mm offset, BFG AT2 285/65/18
    I installed the kit a few days ago with ease. I uploaded some playlists to a 2GB USB stick to try it out. It's cool how it works. But a few things don't seem right:

    1) the volume is low. I use MediaMonkey to organize my songs and sync to devlices so to make up for the low volume, I set up my sync to the memory stick so that is increases the volume of the MP3. That seemed to help.

    2) skipping back tracks seems to freeze playback. I have to turn off the stereo and turn it on again to resume. This happens more than it doesn't.

    3) It may be me but I don't think it always resumes a song where it left off while the truck is off.

    Anyone have any advice?
