I am talking about the built-in car radio (RCD510) podcast listing when you connect the iPhone 5 to the car via the MDI incl. Lightning Adapter.
And yes, the Podcast App is installed and any sorting settings within this app does not influence the way the podcasts are listed in the car radio. I do not know if it changes if you uninstall the Podcast App though.
Right now I since my podcast are non-music but mostly discussions only I am connecting my iPhone via Bluetooth. At least this way my Podcast App is in charge also for sorting. I do have the impression though that the sound quality is worse than if the iPhone is connected via MDI.

Thanks very much Swisshelicase for the detailed feed back
Looking on Wikipedia updates seem to happen quite often so lets hope it gets fixed in a month or two
I assume when you use BT-Audio it is in effect a wireless AUX in
I'm not asking you to try it but I can imagine a separate app not having the same influence over how the OS presents the infromation to the head unit compared with something that is integrated with the OS ie the music 'app'
Thanks for all your help

I have a similar problem with sorting my podcasts. I subscribe to DAR.FM -- to record radio programs. I can then download them to iTunes and then to playlists. From DAR they come to me in 15 minute segments, so using playlists pulls them together and plays the whole program at once. Unfortunatey when the segments of the radio program are presented in DAR in the order in which they are recorded so when they are downloaded into iTunes they are presented in iTunes in that order. The order is in reverse of what I want -- the last segment of the program is recorded last and downloaded last. Then when I want to drag these segments into a playlist, I have to drag each segement -- starting with the last one (which was recorded first). I can't see any way to reorder the downloaded segments into alphabetical order, which would present them in the correct order so you can drag 4 segments at once to a playlist. Help...how do I sort the downloads (podcasts) into alphabetical order? I don't want them downloaded in chronological order! If they are sorted alphabetically, it'll be MUCH easier to drag them into playlists. The problem is even worse where DAR has recorded more than one prgram at the same time...then you get a list that is not just one program in reverse order..you get two programs mixed together both of which are presented in revese order! If they are sorted alphabetically, the segement number will put them in the correct order.
Why doesn't Applie give us a "sort" option for Podcasts?????

Thanks for the update
Would you mind confirming how you are loading the pocasts onto IOS 7
1) DnD from iTunes into the 'old' music app
2) Download into new Podcats app
3) use iRadio
Also what model of head unit do you have in your car
Yes latest iTunes seems to have brought some unwanted podcast features
Thanks very much
When is the podcast app going to return to playing in date order!!!!!
We are long past getting this back, it's the little things in life that make the populous change their minds!
Please just fix this.
