I thought that if a device offered AVRCP Bluetooth profile support, all functions of the perepheral device would be supported. Although the new iPod supposedly offers AVRCP, apparently only some functions work on some devices. Others, like forward/reverse won't. What's the point here in having only "half way" support for some devices? Why not all or nothing?

    You'd have to ask Apple. Nobody here knows their reasons (technical or otherwise) for why only certain functions are supported.

    According to this page +"iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and iPod touch (2nd generation) support pause, play, and stop for AVRCP."+

    Perhaps the other functions didn't work reliably or consistently across all third-party headphones, so its better to only officially support the ones that do.
