    Usb/Stereo

    Just dropping a quick note for those that haven't tried it. I stuck a usb stick full of music into the usb port and.....Wow the stereo sounds amazing and nothing like it does with am/fm. It's like night and day

    It sounds very good through blutooth as well.

    Agreed on both. I bet CDs will play better than am fm too.

    I was curious and tried this out as well. My dealer had told me when I purchased that the car didn't support USB sticks (I was ecstatic to discover they were wrong)

    It took a long time to figure out how to change folders using the cars controls. The steering wheel is perfect for volume up and down and navigating between tracks within a folder, but the only way I found to change between folders was to push the large center knob on the console inward and rotate to "Select Folder".

    Anyone else figure out other ways to navigate between folders?

    Thanks for the tip on how to change folders...I was clueless. Lucky I have a 32gig usb in there and all the folders have over 300 songs. I think I'm on song 192 of this folder now...just love the usb, my old van had so many cd's everywhere, much less clutter now that I can have all my music on a few little usb sticks!!!

    Yes, the USB works pretty well. My only complaint is that the random playback always starts playing the songs in the same order.

    Whew..!
    I'm glad somebody else noticed that. I thought i was nuts.
    It does that with the bluetooth on "random" as well.

    I've tried a USB stick with mp3 files, but the stereo complained about unsupported data types.

    What kind of coding is ok?

    The details are in the manual.
