Currently it just shows the file name, and I would like it to display the Artist and Song Title. If I hit the display button, I am able to see the Artist info in the top screen on the dashboard, but I would like to change it on the main lcd also.
I used "Toast" on Mac to burn a CD of MP3 files. 5 albums altogether. Each album in its own folder. When I do "Track List", I am able to change folders and pick songs. For each song, track title appears. Folder name is the name of the album. As long as MP3 file itself has this info, it will appear on LCD display. You can also change song titles in Toast.
07-S w/ NAV
Does anyone have suggestions on speakers/amps that will help improve the audio quality? Also looking to see if anyone has outfitted the rear deck with a sub replacement.
Do yourself a favor and listen to the DEMO DVD that comes with your TL. They go out and buy one.
I have an '06 TL Type-S so not sure if it matters. I have two rattles that just started after 11,000 miles. The first one sounds like what most people are experiencing with it sounding like it's the speaker but it only happens when it's cold out. I shut the radio off and I can still hear it until the interior warms up. What seatbelt mechanisms should I tell the dealer it is?
The second rattle comes from the front; sounds like it's coming from the dashboard. Anyone else having this issue?
Starting to regret that I purchased one
Did you mean a 2007?
Also, is there an aftermarket interface that lets you access the player through the stereo controls :confuse:
Thanks for the help!
Acura has something that fits in the glove box, that allows you to use stereo controls. I think it's called Acuralink, but from what I was told from the dealership it doesn't work well. I was going to buy it but they said it caused a ton of problems. A friend of mine has the Harman Kardon set up in his BMW and loves it. Don't know how it works in the TL though. Most folks I know just use the input jack.
Hope this helps some... :shades:
By the way, there are two concerns here: integration and sound quality. (Actually, three concerns if you include recharging the ipod, but I don't care about that.) If integration isn't all that important to you, you can get equal sound quality by buying this cable here: dock connector cable. It absolutely makes a difference in sound quality. Of course the aux jack is pretty good, much better than fm transmitters or cassette adaptors, but with a dock connector cable you are getting much better signal to noise ratio, and you control the volume completely through the radio (rather than the annoying adjustment of having to turn the volume all the way up on the ipod).
If you aren't as familiar with this, and you are looking for a less expensive way to get great sound, look into these cables. For $15, you get identical sound quality, and just have to charge and control the ipod from the ipod.
I think I'll just stick with my dock connector out to the aux port. Great sound, and controlling everything from the ipod itself is about as good, if not better, than trying to control it through the head unit.
I am having problems with the CD player getting CD's stuck in the player,
Is there any way to get them out without removing the entire radio system?
My Two Cents...
I am not sure where you can start, just keep your treble and bass levels down so it doesn't make as much of a V line. My 06 Accord, I actually installed Memphis Audio Speakers, and these speakers have an amazing mid range, very warm. I am very impressed with these speakers, and are very efficient, they don't need much power to work great. I think it would be worth getting these speakers and get a decent powered amp and you would have yourself an awesome, clean system, and get the nice mid range you want. Sometimes, its the speakers themselves that don't offer any real mid range, by changing them, you'll see a difference. Just like an amplifier, some offer really warm mid range, like my Denon home receiver, has no mid range option, but offers great mid range, without even having an equalizer.
That is what a true system will do, it will give you all ranges, and you shouldn't have to adjust them.
So good luck, adjust the settings more, I know it took me time to figure out the best arrrangement. Then perhaps try installing the speakers. Memphis Audio have a great line of speakers, and I think you will find yourself saying, Wow, this is what I have been missing! I love having music in the car, so a good system is crucial for me as well. A good factory stereo is hard to come by these days.
A couple of days ago I took my TL to an audio specialist who installs systems. When I told him my issue, he was puzzled because he said rarely does the speaker blow in the TL. He popped the center speaker out and tested it in his shop and said the speaker was perfect and nothing was wrong with it. He does not believe it is a wiring problem either. He thinks that it could be the navigation output jack on the amp in the passenger side front kick panel. He said if that wasn't the issue then I would need to change individual parts one by one until I found the problem. He said if I could find a used amp from a junk yard, he could install it to see if that was the issue. I also asked the audio specialist if the hot temperatures we have been experiencing could be the problem. He said it could very well be, but he would not be 100% sure if that was the issue. He said the only other way to know for sure would be to take it back to Acura and let them fix the issue as he wouldn't be able to know 100% for sure what the issue was. I was also wondering if it was my phone's bluetooth interfering with the navigation. I am reluctant to take it back to Acura because of the price of the fix and the fact that they wrongly diagnosed my issue. I feel I would be taken for a ride.
So my question is if anyone has had this problem with their TL navigation system or if anyone knows what the issue is?

Are there any after market solutions? Is it possible to run the DVD/CD without the NAV? This seems like a major design flaw......
