Displays etc.

Does anyone know what info we are going to get on the display behind the steering wheel and the one on the radio? Maybe the radio one will have climate control panel? iPod interface? Also does anyone know what the USB port is for? Is there a hard drive in the stereo unit?

Welcome! I do not know what exactly the DIC will be able to display, but my guess would include odometer, outside temp (though I have seen this displayed on the rear view mirror too), mileage, tire pressure, and oil life. I am sure there are more but those are my guesses hehe. The usb will be for music - you can put songs on it, stick it in the plug in center console, and the system will scan it for playable tracks, then you can cycle through them via radio controls. I think it has been stated that there will be no on-board hard drive. Not sure on i-pod interface, but I will try to check.

the USB port is for IPODs as well as any other MP3 player - just use the cable you use to connect it to your computer. theres also an aux jack so u can essentially use any device that u can use headphones with, thro your car stereo

i think kanys was right on about everything else.
