It is somewhat frustrating what these radios dont have designed into them. Id be interested in this answer as well, but the best way I found to get somewhat of a shuffle is to organize your songs by title (i think)....that way its still going to play them in order, but at least not by artist.
Hopefully someone has found a way. Not to hijack your thread but im curious to know if you can go through your presets the opposite way?....i.e. Go back to a preset u may have passed using the steering wheel buttons?
Edit.....actually, I just looked and if you hit menu while in hdd you can choose random.
Thanks to you guys, I found the shuffle button! So, I go to the "Songs" subdirectory, go to menu, check "Random", go back to the main directory and press play. No problem. However, when I decide I don't want to listen to a particular song, I hit the forward arrow key to go on to the next song and it freezes. If I hit play, it continues to play the song until I hit forward arrow again, when it then again freezes. About half the time, if I let the song play out it randomly goes to another song. But about half the time it freezes again. Anybody else had this problem?
