Puzzle me this!

before I started driving, I selected "Bluetooth" and the car started playing songs form my iPhone, from Pandora. It was OK, not a single stuttering or anything.

On the way back, I quit Pandora and selected songs form the local library stored on iPhone. Same interface, Bluetooth. Well, this time the music stuttered and skipped several seconds, it was listening to a poor internet stream. WTF is happening here?

On a related note, last night at 2:30 AM I woke up to the sound of music. The phone started playing Pandora out of nowhere, and I got the low battery warning message. Usually I have a out 50% battery left when I wake up, and I plug it in and during breakfast and shower the phone is back to 100%. This time something drained my battery. Maybe there was some weird program running in the background, but what started Pandora in the middle of the night?

....not helpful but when you opened Pandora's box.....you let all the bad things in the world out.....did you check to see if that one thing was left at the bottom of the box.....???

Might be a sketchy bluetooth connection. I use bluetooth headphones at the office that connect to itunes on my iMac. Every once in a while the connection gets wonky and I get just what you described, fluttering and muffled but still recognizable. I turn bluetooth off and on and resync the headphones and it's fine.

Not sure what BlueTooth throughput is, but the music stored on your iPhone almost certainly uses a higher bit rate (and thus requires a higher throughput) than the music you stream from Pandora.



It is what it is.

That makes sense! Thanks for a meaningful response.

I have heard of problems with streaming services using poor quality online versions instead of playing what is available locally on the phone. It's possibly some local pref that got turned off after an update.

The best solution is to get a new car.
