USB port

Playlists are updated whenever the ignition is switched off or a USB memory stick is connected.

The audio system memorises these lists, which will subsequently load faster if they have not been changed.

Information and advice

The system supports USB mass storage devices, BlackBerry® devices and Apple® players via the USB ports. The adapter cable is not supplied. Devices are managed using the audio system controls.

Other devices, not recognised on connection, must be connected to the auxiliary socket using a jack cable (not supplied) or via Bluetooth streaming, if compatible.

The audio system will only play audio files with ".wma", ".aac", ".flac", ".ogg" and ".mp3" file extensions, at bit rates between 32 Kbps and 320 Kbps.

It also supports VBR (Variable Bit Rate) mode. No other file types (".mp4", etc.) can be read. All ".wma" files must be standard WMA 9 files. The supported sampling rates are 32, 44 and 48 KHz.
