    Adam:
    I am sure others already mentioned….regarding clearing out the DYDLs, Onyx will do that and keep users from needing to mess around in the terminal. Though, doesn’t everyone think the terminal is more fun? ;)

    Love the show…..keep ‘em coming !!

    Hi Adam

    Thank you for a great show. I’m listening to it in the car on my iPhone and love the “company” on the commute. ;o)

    During your mention of the CarPlay integration you mentioned that you’re connecting your iPhone to the stereo AUX with a cable, which is also what I used to do. I just wanted to tip you that you can get an aftermarket Bluetooth integration to your stereo that you can also connect to your AUX input. Basically it works like a permanently mounted BT headset that you never need to charge because it’s plugged in to the 12V cigaret lighter plug (also while giving you a USB for charging your phone). It automatically reconnects when you power on the car without any interaction required by you (something that the Belkin solution apparently does). I don’t have any issues with the audio quality, but I’m no audiophile though!

    You can get it on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-BTC450-Bluetooth-Hands-Free-Input/dp/B009NLTW60 and it’s actually $20 off, so it’s only $40.

    Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with company, just love the product and wan’t to share!
