    I thought I'd share that problem I have had with my VF headunit. The problem is intermittent and I can't reproduce it on call. Basically if I am listening to music off a USB stick, I have had randomly when I turn off the engine the head unit turn to the radio. If I restart the engine before getting out of the car, the head unit goes back to playing from the USB. Holden updated my MyLink version a couple of days ago, so hopefully this will fix the problem. This video shows the problem.

    I have a similar issue and it has to do with my favourite radio stations that I have saved. Every so often, the favourites go away and are replaced by some others which I don't know where they come from. When I turn off the engine, the favourites come back. Again, it happens intermittently, so it's hard to pinpoint. The only thing that I can think might be common is that I have my fan/ac on. How about you, does it occur when your fan/ac is working?

    Are you using the same key each time? I think the favourites are linked to the key.

    Hi Chrisp, yes, definitely using the same key each time. Have even put in new battery in the key. I noticed it was doing this not long after the car was purchased. The issue is annoying, not a huge one. Please keep the suggestions coming.

    Mine changes back to its original list of FM Sydney stations in favourites within a few days each time I change them.

    I sometimes listen to my Spotify playlist on my phone via Bluetooth. Sometimes to ABC local radio. If the latter was on when I last switched off the car, that's what I get on startup, but if I was listening to Bluetooth, it changes to a different FM station.
