USB Port in car

My new car has a USB port in it... What do I do with that? Can I make my phone play music on the radio with it?

It depends on your radio, some will let you just plug in your iGadget and work right from that, some will let you use a flash drive. See if your car or radio has a user manual.

Your car probably has an auxillary port as well, mine does. I can plug in my ipod or iphone and play music. It's the little round hole in your iphone, like where earplugs would go, same thing except you buy an auxillary cord. I have usb port, haven't tried a flash drive in there yet, easier just to use my ipod.

Hey, I'd be excited too! My little Buick has everything BUT a USB or AUX port, and not even a tape deck so I can use a converter! I guess now that I'm back in Clovis I can use a radio transmitter, though it certainly wasn't feasible in the Bay Area. I'd have to change the frequency about 3 times on the way to the barn lol!

OP, those things are mighty nifty, I'm a bit jealous!

I do have that little auxiliary port too! I have to go to the cell phone store! Ya'all just don't understand! My truck is an 06 but it is a dually and it was bought for pulling so the only extra I have in it other than power windows is the leather interior for easy cleaning... The car I've been driving is a 97 Pontiac. This car is like magical to me!

I was telling one of the guys at work how it tells me how many psi's my tires have and how many miles I can go before getting gas and what my oil life is.. and he was like... uh... that's a normal feature... all cars have that... WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING!

And it has a plug in the back. My brother said not to plug a toaster into it though...

I know the GM products with USB ports work that way playback and charge the battery.

That black auxilary cord can be bought at a dollar store for, well, a dollar!
