There is a USB port in the center console. You'll be able to plug in a MP3 player or flash drive. There is also an aux port for a iPod or other MP3 player with DRM.
I knew it would have the USB port back when Fbodfather said it would have one. That isn't the new info I was referring to.
My Acura has a USB port which allows me to play songs and control my IPod through the stereo controls so when it says you’ll be able to plug in a MP3 player or flash drive I assumed it would do the same. I didn't think you could "download" your music.
Although I have to agree with marticus24,

I don't really care that much because over the years I've gotten quite good at it, but my concern is that if the rear visibility is not good then the car will get lambasted in the press for this.

A lot of people here some to be under the illusion that if GM makes a quality car that everyone everywhere is going to automatically realize that the car is good and GM has turned a corner and is on the upswing and making great stuff. I'm only here to say that if the car has even small flaws that there are people out there who will AMPLIFY them into defects of proportions that make my occasional complaints seem like high praise.

There's a lot of people who want to see GM fail and that's why this car has to have as few perceived flaws as possible.

So, if the visibility is bad, there could be a lot of press about it.
The car was not designed to have poor rear visability. It is simply a by product of the styling decision. There is no such thing as a perfect car. On persons preferences are anothers defect so the car is what it is. I applaud GM for offering this package because many premium cars are beinging to do so regardless of the rear visibility.

You kind of answered your own question. They don't want to mention HUD so those who are not in the know will buy now and not wait. Sort of like the Goat, if the majority of the people who purchased the first year with the LS1 knew the next year would have a 400hp LS2, they would have waited also.

Sorry... I've heard of HDs in cars. I meant, I haven't heard of one being available in the Camaro.

You are allowed to discuss it - and provide customers with information from it...but you are not to distribute the original pdf - this is stated from our download page where we get this from....

It's not a salesperson at risk - it's the dealership.....one that tends to walk a fine line with GM.

Exactly.

Poor rear visibility isn't even much of an issue in a coupe anyway. If it was large vehicle in which a lot of visual aid would be necessary to back up, I could understand the complaint. However, in a car this size people should just be able to "feel" exactly where their car is.

I wonder why it's not to be distributed, considering it contains nothing we didn't already know.

Cheers for the info!

The Camaro on page 3 is idd the Concept one. There are pix in the forum showing an SS, and the PDF one isn't an SS. Strange though, why would they use the Concept and label it as an SS...

"Download" means transfer and not necessarily storing. An HDD would be nice ofc, but I 'm glad for the uber USB as it is.

Would love to see some interior pix with coloring options soon. I wanna see the "Inferno Orange Interior" package. It 's the only one that adds colored stitching to many things. Should be rly nice idd.

It's nothing we didn't know already...(for the most part.)

But it's ALWAYS nice to see something come up and try to get us even more excited then before. Can't wait!

The problem with that idea is some socialist nanny in the government will see a car with this feature and get the bright idea that they can look like a great politician by getting a LAW passed REQUIRING every car to have one of these things.

So, in a couple years we'll all be bitchin' because the 2020 Camaro tips the scales at 5,000 pounds.

I got nothing else against the feature except for the fact it ruins the look of the rear bumper and somehow trumped the HUD in the packet.

In case you guys didn't catch this part it looks as though you need to buy some kind of adapter module to be able to use the steering wheel controls with external audio devices.

Best case scenario is that the USB jack can connect and use the steering wheel controls to browse songs on a standard "USB Mass Storage Device", meaning you can shove a 1TB portable Hard Drive in the console and play until your ears bleed.

I'm guessing you need an adapter because Crapple charges a licensing fee to companies who build audio systems that "talk" to the iPlod with it's proprietary protocols.

Microsoft/FAT32 wins!
