USB Media Player Improvements

A few problems I have with my 2017 when playing USB media:
1. Shuffle issues - "shuffle" shouldn't play the songs in the same order every time! I have shortcut buttons set by genre, and every time I click on it's the same sequence of songs.
2. Additional Favorite Options - would like to be able to create favorite for a folder, or for "All Music".
3. A way to pick a favorite shortcut from the steering wheel. With radio, you can change stations with the steering wheel, but once you select USB media, the steering wheel control is used to change songs - to change to a different genre, you need to use the touchscreen.
4. A way to rate, flag, and/or delete songs. A really annoying song found its way into one of my folders, and I kept forgetting what it was so I could remedy the situation when I got home.
5. Auto-volume - not sure if this is supposed to correct volume differences between songs, or automatically compensate for road noise, but it doesn't seem to do either, and I have it set to "high".

Every car stereo I have tested has the same problem with a thumb drive. If I put 1000 songs on the thumb drive, the player only recognizes 254 songs. If you play them in order, it will start over with the first song after playing the 254th song. It doesn't matter what brand of stereo. Even the geeks at Best Buy didn't believe me until I placed my thumb drive into every car stereo and showed them.

My only solution was to make a dozen or so folders, each with 254 songs in it, and switch from one folder to the next when I get bored of the 254 songs. I would rather play 3000 songs on shuffle play, but it can't be done.
