Looking towards buying an MP3 player since my free XM subscription is coming to an end.

I was curious as to whether I would be able to hook up any MP3 player to the IPod auxiliary port and have it function through the center console... or if I would have to specifically buy an IPod to have that function available?

Do you have the usb port? If so I'd use that with a flash drive.

I did once hook up my phone with the mp3 player with the audio cable and it did work fine. But if I remember correctlly, it didn't display the artist or songs on the radio. With the ipod and cable, you will be able to use the controls and screen on the radio.

A regular mp3 player will have to be controlled thru the player but if you connect your phone to the usb it should work for playing mp3. That is assuming you have a phone that plays mp3. Also the flash drive thing. You can get an 8gb for under $20 anywhere, under $10 if you shop around.

MP3 players that support bluetooth headsets will work with the car's bluetooth system.

Any MP3 will work with the proper cable. BUT, Ive noticed that only my iPhone and my iTouch actually display the contents of the device and allow control through the cars various buttons.

I tried my iPod Nano and it did play the music, but thats it. Not control or folder info.

I thought the bluetooth was only for cellphones. How do you get an mp3 player to work with the bluetooth system? I have a 2011 Sonata.

Just get a USB stick for $15 and leave it plugged in. Simple, cheap, and pain-free if someone steals it.

My MP3 player worked fine but no display and fiddly. So I burned two CDs--20 cents each--with my music, getting just over ten albums per disk. The stock radio displays the song and has convenient buttons to move backwards and forwards through albums and/or tracks. Lost, stolen or trodden on, easy and cheap to replace.

How do you get 10 albums on a CD that normally only holds about 80 minutes?

I was wondering the exact thing, just now. If there's a trick I'm missing, hook me up with the 411...!!!
