Playing music through center console USB port

I'm having a hell of a time getting music to play from a device through the center console USB port.

I've tried:

1. iPhone 4 (not surprised this one didn't work, actually)
2. iPhone Nano 6th generation (the newest one)

For each of these devices, the same thing happend. The "reading" message displayed on the radio for about a minute, followed by a generic "An Error Occurred" message. The result was no music indexing, and no ability to play music from a USB-connected device.

Has anyone else had this same issue? Have you been successful in playing music through the center console USB port? If so, what device did you use?

I have the RHB (Garmin nav) radio.

Any help would be appreciated! This USB port has been VERY frustrating.

Re: Playing music through center console USB port

I was not successful the first few tries...but then I tried a differnt Ipod. If you hit the aux tab then look for the device tab - let it read completely - it has to index all the songs on the Ipod. then it will play and you can control it with the radio controls. Good luck! Be patient!

One more thing - plug the Ipod in BEFORE you select the Aux and Device. See if that helps.

Re: Playing music through center console USB port

I have the same issue now although it was playing initially for the first few days. I also have a problem where the the songs speed up during Bluetooth streaming. I have the MC 430( no GPS).

Re: Playing music through center console USB port

Kept trying with no success... then the last time I tried the Nano, it worked! No clue why, but hopefully it will keep on working. The Voice Command of music is why I waited for the 430N vs. the 730N. It recognized every song, artist, or album I threw at it. Very impressive!

It supposedly supports album art too, but haven't seen that appear yet. Have you had any luck getting album art to appear?

Re: Playing music through center console USB port

A quick question on Ipod playback... Does it navigate in the same way an Ipod does by breaking an artist's catalog down by album and allowing you to listen sequentially rather than alphabetically ie.. Artist->Album->Song, or does it give you a big list of songs for each artist? I'm curious about the 430 model on the Laredo X specifically.

Does the center console USB do better with flash drives?

Re: Playing music through center console USB port

Not sure about the album art - I know it shows up when I put an actual CD in the bay. the list can be soprted by album, artist ot genre. This is cool, you can also set an artist favorite and when that artist has a song playing on any station it will give you an alert. Same with sports teams......if a game is being broadcast or there is a score change you can get alerts even if you are not listening to that channel! This is so fun - love it!

If you choose to play by artist, and you have multiple albums by the same artist, the songs don't seem to be listed in any logical order. It doesn't seem to be sequential or alphabetical.
