Most interesting thing I have noticed so far is concerning the internal gracenote database. I'm a huge KISS fan, and have every KISS album on my Iphone 4, with artwork. I have noticed that some of the artwork displays differently on the media interface than on the Iphone. For those who may not know, the KISS logo in Europe looks differnent than the U.S. logo (The two s's on the end look more like z's than lighting bolts.) They did this to avoid offending those that think the lighting bolts resemble too much the Nazi SS insignia. It is fascinating to me that on some of the albums, the artwork displays the European KISS logo rather than the one that is on my Iphone. Not quite sure how the Media Interface decides to pull the artwork from the gracenote database instead of the Iphone. Can anyone answer that? Or if not, can you tell me who to ask at Mercedes? People at the dealership don't have a clue, nor would I expect them to! Also aggravating is why purchased music on Iphone will not display artwork unless you go to many steps to outsmart it which I learned about on another forum.

Also some album artwork displays and some does not. Read on a forum how to save as MP3s and replace artwork with new artwork, save on USB stick or External Drive, then plug into USB port, search by cover and download all track info including artwork. After doing this, unplug the USB stick, attach Iphone and then the artwork will display because it will pull from internal memory rather than the iphone. Too much trouble for most but does anyone have any insight as to why this happens?

I have observed a same thing as well. Bluetooh Audio only streams music not other things involved and music menu on your Comand screen has a richer view as well.

If your system is NTG 4.5 , you will have a slot for SD Card and use it to listen to your fave tracks thus you will be able to view your album cover w/o doing too much work
