Here's the problem: while listening to music in-flight, the audio stream cuts in and out almost like a skipping record at times. I've had no problem pairing the units and playing with things on the ground, but in flight, only the iPod touch does not cooperate. I tried all the trouble shooting methods from Apple and PS Engineering including resetting the audio panels's memory, but all to no avail.

So as we leveled off in the cool morning air I selected the "Reset Network" option. I got somewhat excited since upon doing this the unit fully shutdown and then powered back up. I was hoping this move would zap whatever gremlins were lurking inside the iPod touch and all would be well. After it powered back up, I selected the audio panel in the Bluetooth menu to connect the two and hit play on some music............didn't work.

So, for those that may be having Bluetooth issues where it appears the music is intermittently cutting out or skipping, try this (for Apple products):
- Go to Settings
- Select General
- Select Bluetooth
- When you see the device you are trying to pair with, touch the blue arrow pointing right and select "Forget This Device"
- When you end up back at the Bluetooth menu, select the device you want to connect with and hopefully it will work.
If this works for you too, just remember, you'll have to do it for every new flight. This may seem like a lot, but the steps only take a few seconds and I am so happy to be able to enjoy my tunes again while flying. Good luck y'all!
