  3. Android Auto optimized for audio quality?

    Alfa Giulia
    I don't profess to be an audiophile but I do appreciate good high quality audio and have long since discarded all my mp3 files in favour of FLAC and Spotify has been swapped out for Tidal in order to stream Lossless audio. Now, via Bluetooth Tidal is wasted as the compression that takes place...

In the factory location I had a JL...

    Alfa Giulia
    Is there any way to reset the infotainment system? Switching off the engine and coming back a couple of hours later hasn't changed this... I can no longer switch between Bluetooth audio devices. Selecting to connect to an existing paired device just results in an "updating..." message, which...
