Is the an aux input for my phone to be used as mp3 or stream Rhapsody?

Thanks!

So.... No headphones cable needed to stream? Just uses Bluetooth? Jeez, my BMW doesn't do that.

Is the usb HD file management easy? It sucks on my 335.

There are 2 USB inputs (1 on head unit, 1 in center console), there is also an AUX input located on head unit directly under the USB port.

Thanks everyone - I appreciate the info. Nothing like anticipation of your new vehicle coming. I am def. interested in the Bluetooth streaming. I use Rhapsody from my phone (Yea, I know some people prefer Pandora, some Spotify - it's ok, I won't judge).

My wife has a 2011 5.7 Overland with the rear entertainment package for the kids and that has a sub in the trunk - just wondering if this will sound better for the $2k i'm paying

Re: 2012 Harmon Kardon

Alright, so I picked up my new SRT8 yesterday and can CONFIDENTLY say that the HK Sound makes the 2011 Overland sound system sound like poopoo. My wife got in my car last night, I turned it on and she promptly say "holy ****". Now, i happen to agree... the bass is thunderous in comparison, the highs are VERY crisp... reminds me of being home listening to my Paradigm Signature S4's.

VERY Natural sounding curves... simple EQ which I wasn't overly fond of - lack of surround "modes"... however, overall, fantastic improvement over the system I get in the 2011 w/ rear seat entertainment.

Goota give a big thumbs up to Jeep on this one.

Well for a 2K option, I would hope it sounds a lot better than the stock Overland unit. I also wish Jeep offered for the lowly Overlands.
