Re: Oh no...

Oh no!
Off-Road Adventure I is no longer offered on Limited? I'll be forced to buy Off-Road Adventure II for much more money. (Not convinced I need air suspension and am sure I don't need the trailer hitch), (and LSD should be more readily available across the line.) That sucks.

Also, the 9-speaker stand-alone audio upgrade is not listed as an option. But it wasn't listed on the '15 Build & Price either and was still available. So still a question mark.

Also no CD player option for '16. I know, old tech, but I have a lot of CDs.

I'm in the process of ripping my CD collection using this superb program. Highly recommended. I'm happily rediscovering a lot of great stuff I'd forgotten I had. (And I'm unhappily finding more than a few empty cases, no doubt looted by my kids years ago, but about which they now disavow all knowledge.)

And I found this tiny little 128GB USB drive on Amazon. 128GB and it's the size of a dime! And costs 30 bucks! Amazing. My first HD was an 80MB (yes MB!) external SCSI drive for my Apple II that was the size of a toaster and cost $1200 (yes $1200!).

FYI, I had some problems using larger than 30 Gb flash drives. For whatever reason the UConnect has a problem recognizing them, I'm thinking it has trouble once a certain file # is reached. You may want to test it before you fill it past 30 Gb. All the files were formatted the same as smaller drives (even some of the same songs, just more). It also wouldn't play back higher than 192Kbps recordings. Another post on here says that is NOT an issue and he plays 320 Kbps recordings regularly. I am still looking into this problem just haven't had time to play with it. Just thought I'd give you a heads up.

Currently, I'm using a 128GB SD-Card with more than 11,000 songs on it and it plays without any issues. I have it all organized in many folders so I don't know if that helped as well.

BTW, I'm using 320 Kbps on all of these files without any problem.

I think a lot of people don't realize there is an "Interior" tab when you get to the "Options" page.
