Ford Fiesta skipping tracks constantly via USB

Ford Fiesta skipping tracks constantly via USB

I know this has been asked previously but I can't seem to find a definitive answer that actually resolves this...

 

 

When connected via USB (no bluetooth) on my 2012 Ford Fiesta, the app will constantly skip tracks after less than a second and keep doing this until I disconnect the USB and reconnect.  It's pretty much making the app unusable unless I listen to one album at a time or a very small Playlist.  It seems to happen after a few songs on larger Playlists.

 

It will happily play one song if I start the song prior to connecting the USB but then one or two songs later it will keep skipping without playing and the track count keeps going up (eg. 5, 6, 7...) without selecting a song.

 

I don't have Ford Sync and there is no bluetooth option within the car so any help or suggestions are massively appreciated!  Thanks 🙂

 

(both iOS and Spotify have been updated to most recent versions)

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community.

 

Apologies for the delayed response, we just came across this thread. We recommend that as a first step with this issue you perform a clean reinstall on your phone. This tends to solve connectivity issues like the one you're experiencing. It's also a good idea to check for any available updates to your cars infotainment system.

 

If that doesn't solve things, could you let us know what other connectivity methods are available in your car and whether or not the track skip when using it as well?

 

Keep us posted, we'll keep an eye out for your replies.

Hey @twiggy13,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

We're sorry to hear you're still experiencing this. Could you share what other connection methods are available in your car ( e.g. AUX cable or Bluetooth) and if you can replicate the behavior there? We'd also appreciate it if you share the make, model, OS version and Spotify version of the device you're using to connect. One last thing - does the app switch in car view when connected via USB cable?

 

Let us know how things go.

Hey again @mrersin,

 

Thanks for getting back in touch and for that info.

 

Could you turn the Car mode on when your phone is connected to your car and let us know if that makes any difference? You can find that option within the app settings.

 

Keep us posted.
