Portable media devices can be connected to the media hub located in the center console's cubby box. Optical discs can be inserted into the CD/DVD drive located in the center console.

Compatible portable devices include:

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


    External hard drives are not recommended for use. Doing so could reduce the life of the device.


    It is recommended that the USB mass storage device does not exceed 128GB. USB mass storage devices exceeding the maximum recommendation could cause a malfunction of the infotainment system.


    Depending on the memory size of the USB mass storage device, a time delay may be evident before the stored files can be accessed.

  • Optical media: Album, CDs, or DVDs.

  • iPod: iPad, iPod Touch, iPod Mini, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Classic Gen4, Gen5, Gen6 are supported. Full functionality for older devices cannot be guaranteed. iPod Classic Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, and iPod Shuffle are not supported.


    Album artwork displays if the iPod device is fully supported. Some Generation level devices cannot recognize or support the album artwork.

  • Media devices that support HDMI or MHL.

If connecting an iPod, mass storage, or Bluetooth® wireless technology device, use the touchscreen to operate and search the device. Many of the controls are similar to those available for CD playback.


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


The media system plays MP3, WMA, AIFF, M4A, FLAC, AAC, and ALAC files. Other formats are available.


If a software update has been activated on the connected portable media device, it will be necessary to restart the media device to make sure it is recognized by the media system.

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

Some MP3 players have a file system that is not supported by the system. To use an MP3 player, set it to USB Removable Device or Mass Storage Device mode.
