The truck I bought a few months ago has a USB port, too. I was just as excited when I realized I could hook my iPhone up directly to it, playing music and charging with just one cable (in my last car I'd get annoying interference on the aux cable when it was also plugged in to power) I haven't tried a flash drive in there. I'll have to see if that works, too!

I tried the flash drive but it didn't work. I had an iphone until I washed it (I'll get my new one on the 18th when my upgrade is due since the insurance still requires you to pay $170...not like I'm counting though)
The flash didn't work because I couldn't get the files to convert into a .wav or mp3....

I did hook my sons droid up with that other port and it worked great...

OP, those things are mighty nifty, I'm a bit jealous!
My car doesn't have all the bells and whistles (seats are not power, and no automatic lights) but it's got a great media set up. SD card slot, wireless media blue tooth, USB port, and Aux port. I can give up a lot of things as long as I have my music.

I'll trade ya! I DO have a fabulous sound system and a 6 CD changer at least. If it can handle blasting Pendulum without sounding like crap, that's all I need! I just wish playing music was a tad bit more convenient.

First world problems-the struggle is real!!!

No way, my blue tooth media quit working ( and I couldn't get my car into the shop for over a week) I seriously thought I was going to have an anxiety attack Had to drive an hour to find a AUX cord because there is no WAY I could survive with just the radio

Music and tushie warmers! It's all good....

Last year I drove my suburban to work a couple days with no heat. It was 10 degrees and I had to unroll the windows because they kept icing up. I lived through it because that old truck has a bad to the bone stereo system!
