Hey all, This is a well-known issue. Links: Issue 9888 - android - Poor A2DP sound quality - Project Hosting on Google Code Poor quality of music streaming over Bluetooth - Android Forums My Samsung Epic (from Sprint) suffers from this...horrible quality! My Itouch (from Apple) BT Audio was perfect! So, this sucks. And for the life of me, i cannot get the Prius NAVI/Audio to recognize any music files on my Epic via USB connection. I never had this issue with the Itouch. (And yes, my music is on the microSD card.) In addition, with the Samsung phones (e.g. Epic), you apparently cannot access music on your phone via USB drive due to lack of proper driver??!! Although i like the phone, but this is giving me reasons to return the Epic phone!
