Sounds like the console USB port just became ......useless.
Reckon its best to just go "old school" and get power from the "cigarette lighter" and just pump signal via Bluetooth.
I was hoping I'd be able to squeak a teensy bit more bit-rate through the cable....but the difference in audio quality wouldn't be sufficiently evident to override the sound of me bitching about how much trouble it is to make it happen "effortlessly".
Ahhh....21st century sniveling.
Im still happy with my Jeep and my phone.
