PORTABLE MEDIA CONNECTIONS

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See PORTABLE MEDIA SAFETY.

Portable media devices can be connected to the media hub, located in the center console's cubby box. See STORAGE COMPARTMENTS.

Compatible portable devices include:

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

    NOTES

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

    NOTES

    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.

    NOTES

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

  • 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.

    NOTES

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

If connecting an iPod, mass storage, or Bluetooth® wireless technology device, use the touchscreen to operate and search the device.

NOTES

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

NOTES

If a software update has been activated on the connected portable media device, it is necessary to restart the media device. Restarting the device makes 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 mass storage devices. Failing this, it is recommended that compressed files utilize a minimum bit rate of 192 kb/s. A higher bit rate is strongly recommended.

NOTES

iPod is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the US and other countries.

NOTES

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.
