Question Docking/Undocking Issue with Stiletto

Has anyone else been experiencing a problem when docking and undocking the Stiletto from the car dock? It seems that my unit does not switch from one status to another without a hard shutdown.

Here is what happens, I'm happily listening to my Stiletto with my headset on portable mode. I get into my car, turn on the ignition and pop the Stiletto into the dock (I've tried it both with the unit already on and in sleep mode). The unit turns on and looks like it's playing but, no sound coming through my speakers, even switching to Library does not help (yes, radio is turned on and tuned to correct station). So, I do a hard shut down and restart and once it starts up again, everything works fine.

The same thing happens in reverse once I leave the car and want to use my headset again. I've tried it with first putting the Stiletto into sleep mode and not.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a software glitch?

Have you tried checking the volume? I know that sometimes when I am listening to mine and put it into sleep then come back out, the volume is turned all the way down. Don't have a car dock yet, so I can't test to see if it happens in the dock too, but it might be worth checking.

Yes make sure this isn't a volume issue. I have had just what sunmorgus has experience happen to me when switching modes and each time it was the volume.

Cool

Thank you for the suggestions, but unfortunately that does not seem to be the case. I hadn't thought of the volume, but I checked it out, and after I reseated the Stiletto I can still hear the system prompts. In fact at first the last station starts playing again for about 2 seconds and then stops. The antenna is showing at least two bars, so it's not a signal loss. I switched over to the library and my music files sounded OK. But, I can't seem to get back to the satellite signal without a hard shutdown. Once I restart, the sat radio starts up in short order.

One thing about the volume though, I noticed that when I go to remove the unit from the dock, that my grip does tend to hit the volume control. So, that may be the cause of the volume change.

Thanks again for your help. But, I'm thinking this might be software related.
