Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

I don't like current USB and SD position in 2014 JGC. Consider that in my Summit (European Diesel model) there is a CD player in the center armrest, leaving very small space inside. The presence of CD player implies also the lack of the upper slim compartment in the center armrest, the place where - in my previous 2012 JGC - I had the USB port. That compartment was useful to keep my iPod Classic permanently connected, while I could use the USB port in front of the 2012 Uconnect system to charge my phone.

Now, to keep the USB port in the center console free for charging my phone, I'm forced to drop my iPod and move my music on the SD Card. But my music library is larger than the larger of the SD cards available....

You obviously don’t use gloves like these:

How often are you having to remove it? Personally I have only done it 3 times in 5 months as I have updated newly acquired music.

Or a Brake Controller

You can get 256GB SDXC cards, although they are crazy expensive. I currently have a 64GB card in there, 128GB isn’t too badly priced.
I find it far more conveinet to use the SD card for storage and playback.
