Auxiliary input jack

Is the auxiliary input jack a 1/8" (3.5mm) connector that lets you hook up a music player via the AUX mode on the factory radio?



Is this the location of the jack? I see the USB port and what looks like 12V power outlet.

The picture is a little blurry, but that small hole directly below the USB port appears to be the auxiliary input jack.

Can't you use a USB port to play an iPod?

the USB drive is for whatever you want it to be for, it can be anything with a usb cable and if im not mistaken you can charge a lot of things from it.

Yeah but I bought the AC connection for the Zune because I stepped on the USB cable. Now I just sync it wirelessly and If I want to hear it on my car I can just connect it with an auxillary jack I had from before.

Not sure if it is the same, but there is a cable that came w/ my BMW .. uses the AUX and the USB .. plug it into the iPhone and play music .. can control it via the steering wheel controls .. I also use a thumbdrive in the USB Drive to play music ..

I've heard 2 different answers from 2 different members of the Camaro team. Both yes and no. I suspect that they don't know that iPods use unique file formats and aren't just MP3 players. I doubt it will work with iPods, because they would have to pay out licensing to Apple. I didn't see "iPod[tm] Compatible" on any of the documentation, but maybe its in the fine print.

YES!

You will have the aux input for all models. You WILL be able to control your IPOD through that jack.

The USB port is for a thumb drive or memory stick.

I do believe that we will be able to control the IPOD and USB through the scroll buttons, etc. In fact, I'm 99.999999999999999% sure of this.

Yes, but what about the iPhone? Is there a regular aux jack (minijack or RCA input)?


Gotta keep the speculation train going somehow

Do you guys think a nice portable external hard drive would work for that USB port? If so it'd be endless music for the road and way better than an Ipod

I was hoping for a mini hard drive like the CTS...plug in your usb memory stick...upload all your songs, and keep them in a hard drive. Darn it! Can't do it.

But that's okay...I could fit hundreds of songs on an external memory stick! NO MORE CD'S!!!

I'm fairly certain there are aftermarket solutions. You could have a hard drive installed somewhere in the car, maybe the glove box. Might not even be too expensive.

For those thinking of getting an external hard drive, make sure it can run off USB power and doesn't require an external power source.
