PJWANNABE said:The Sync in my '12 GT works pretty well with my Blackberry, and the "Bad Media" error only happens occasionally with MP3s. The biggest complaint that I have is when I make calls on the road people say it is hard to hear me, which is probably due to road noise. It probably works better in a luxury car.

I have 2013 Boss with Sync, and it is aggravating. There is no way I would have paid $1000 for it if I could have gotten around it somehow. It works about 1/2 the time, even when you say the exact same command the exact same way. It mysteriously refuses to sync with my Android phone about 1/2 the time. It finds songs on my iPod for a few days, then suddenly gives me "Media Error" for no reason. The voice nav is completely useless, because it has to call a phone number and download the route data. By the time it does this, you are far enough along that it has to reroute you. Guess what? Than means another phone call. It does this over and over. If you stop and download the route, which takes 2-3 minutes, the moment you get off route it has to make ANOTHER phone call. It is clearly useless.
The only thing it does well is navigate a small memory stick with music. If you can get it to sync with Pandora, that is cool, until it loses it brains and refuses to sync again. If you have more than 10,000 songs on a memory stick, it loses its brains, too.
Bottom line: the $250 Kenwood head in my other car kicks the crap out of Sync.
Don't get me started on the quality of the speakers....which is not a Sync issue but which is also a sore spot.
