IPod on the 2012 GL1800 not showing song titles or artists

I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem. I can see the artist name, album and song by drilling down using the right knob, but when I back to the regular display, I just get it showing song x/y but no titles. I thought this was something that was supported on the bike given it has an iPod mode when it reads from the USB connector.

I know I'm late to the dance on this and was using a USB stick before, but I found a nice little iPod for $30 on ebay and figured I'd try it hoping for a bit more info to be displayed.

Anyone have any ideas? Do I need a specific version of firmware on the bike?

Don't have my owners manual handy but I think it can be set up to show artist, song title etc. Mine does. 2013 GL 1800B. It's all in the manual.

2013 F6B /ABS Black of course.

If you use the Title button, you can cycle through artist/album/song/nothing on the display. Don't know why they can't show more like the XM radio does. I just tested both an iPod Classic and a recent iPhone and they behave the same.

Too bad they don"t scroll the entire title and name.... It's it's a long title, I only see part of it.
