PORTABLE MEDIA CONNECTIONS

Portable media devices can be connected to the front media hub, located in the cubby box. Compatible portable devices include:

  • USB mass storage devices (e.g., a memory stick). Devices must use FAT or FAT32 file format.

  • iPod® (iPod Classic, Touch, Nano, and iPhone® are supported - full functionality for older devices cannot be guaranteed). iPod Shuffle functionality cannot be guaranteed.

  • Auxiliary device (personal audio, MP3 players, all iPods).

    NOTES

    Auxiliary devices have no Touch screen control.

If you are connecting an iPod, mass storage, or Bluetooth® device, use the Touch screen to operate and search for the device. Many of the controls are similar to those available for CD play.

CAUTION

Please disconnect your iPod when leaving the vehicle. Failure to do so may result in the iPod battery discharging.

NOTES

The Audio system will play MP3, WMA, and AAC files.

To maximize playback quality, it is recommended that lossless compression is used for any media files on USB or iPod. Failing this, it is recommended that compressed files utilize a minimum bitrate of 192 kb/s (a higher bitrate is strongly recommended).

NOTES

iPod and iPhone are registered trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

NOTES

Some MP3 players have their own file system that is not supported by this system. To use your MP3 player, you must set it to USB Removable Device or Mass Storage Device mode. Only music that has been added to the device in this mode can be played.

NOTES

If the USB cable is connected (e.g., to charge the device) to the vehicle, while an iPod is playing music via Bluetooth, the Bluetooth connection will be disabled. To continue listening to music from the iPod, select iPod mode.
