Audio books on 8.4 Nav
Looks like the head unit does not want to read Audible books in .aa format. Apparently wants to see MP3 only.

Anybody doing books on SD card? I know I can BT the iPad or iPhone, but would like to not have to have the pad/phone in the mix if I can avoid it.

There are conversion steps from .aa to MP3, but I am looking for a solution that let's me DL a book to an SD card in a format that the 8.4 reads.

Anyone got a fix?

I am listening to Mark Levin's book "Liberty and Tyranny" over bluetooth and Audible.

I've listened to fairly long Podcasts on SD or USB, works fine.

You might want to break the MP3's up into at least chapters. Be nice if the tools could do that for you automatically.

It is true that audiobooks can be played on the 8.4 with .aa to MP3 file conversion or through Bluetooth or usb cables. I have been trying to figure out what Uconnect had in mind when they listed audiobooks on SD as an option. So far, I have not found any audiobook supplier who does MP3 for anything other than public domain writings.

Audible used to provide books in MP3 as a regular option, but that was years ago before DRM became the way of the world.
