    I did the recent upgrade to Sync 3 , 3.0 and noticed something quite annoying.. not sure if anyone else has noticed this..

    After using Android Auto to play music, if you turn off the vehicle, then the next time you start it, the radio will be powered off.

    Steps to reproduce

    1) Plug in phone
    2) Use Spotify on Android Auto
    3) Turn off engine (Keep phone plugged in before turning off)
    4) remove phone
    5) Exit/Enter (so head unit powers off)
    6) Start Vehicle with NO PHONE attached.
    7) radio is now turned off.


    This was not the behaviour prior to the 3.0 upgrade.. has anyone noticed this?

    Same behavior here. Actually though, the radio turns off, but if you have a bluetooth stream, that starts up.
