I don't get why they don't have that USB port protected. I use a 16GB MicroSD card in a mini USB adapter and leave it plugged in so it remembers where it left off playing. Only problem is that eventually starting the car will blow out the adapter (not the MicroSD card though, thankfully). Wish they'd put some sort of voltage protection on the port as I don't really want to have to unplug the thing every time I start the car!ive noticed it there and found the copy etc... at first it seemed very cool then i just couldnt see why id bother...lol
i have a 4gb USB drive plugged in (that port is standard correct?).. and that was the smallest i had laying around.. i wouldnt worry about 699mb personally
no kidding? has that happened to you or are you just worried about it?
i read that in the manual and figured it was hyundai covering themselves.. anything could see a voltage spike at some point.. id say i havent had any issues, but its been like... 4 days.. lol
Nothing thus far in my wife's GT. It's an 8Gb Imation flash drive that's been plugged in since June. My iPod touch has been plugged in for over a year now, with no issues. Originally I had a few other flash drives I tried for a few days each with no ill results.Makes me wonder what happens with other USB devices if you leave them plugged in all the time, too.
Cool N5S - I'm going to try with a better quality adapter, the original one was on the cheap side, maybe $3-5 retail and probably less than $1 in parts.Nothing thus far in my wife's GT.
