Are the rear USB ports intended for charging only?

In my 2014 Summit, I have confirmed that my rear USB ports do not allow multimedia input. That is to say, I can plug my iPod or a USB stick into these and the iPod will charge/the stick will light up, but the 8.4AN will never recognize these as an audio source while plugged into those ports. I can plug the same devices into the forward USB port and everything works as expected (audio files play).

Is this the expected operation, or do I need to schedule service?

Re: Are the rear USB ports intended for charging only?

I have a 2012 Overland, but mine didn't come with the rear usb ports only the plug (Pic: http://media.ed.edmunds-media.com/je..._21313_600.jpg )

What option had the rear usb power?

(If this was already discussed in another thread my search didn't bring it up.)

I believe the option was the purchase of a 2014 model year or newer JGC.
