I want to play music from a USB flash drive through the entertainment system of my 2013 GLS. Does the flash drive have to be formatted in a specific way (FAT, FAT32, extFAT, NTFS)? How many files are allowed: per flash drive, per directory? What formats are allowed for music files (mp3, wav, etc.)?

I have a few sticks all formatted to FAT32. In the past I did test mines and it did play both wav and mp3 files.

Yes, but FINDING the Audio section is a hassle. The Index is so POOR. I sent the same question to Hyundai support, and they referred me to a manual page that had pictures of 2 CD player configurations. The manual contains a lot of info, but if it's not indexed properly, its value as a reference tool is severely limited.

I searched the manual for MP3 and it came right up.

To use an external USB device,
make sure the device is not connected
when starting up the vehicle.
Connect the device after
starting up.
• If you start the engine when the
USB device is connected, it may
damage the USB device. (USB
flashdrives are very sensitive to
electric shock.)
• If the engine is started up or
turned off while the external USB
device is connected, the external
USB device may not work.
• It may not play inauthentic MP3 or
WMA files.
1) It can only play MP3 files with
the compression rate between
8Kbps~320Kbps.
2) It can only play WMA music
files with the compression rate
between 8Kbps~320Kbps.
• Take precautions for static electricity
when connecting or disconnecting
the external USB device.

(Continued)
• An encrypted MP3 PLAYER is not
recognizable.
• Depending on the condition of
the external USB device, the connected
external USB device can
be unrecognizable.
• When the formatted byte/sector
setting of External USB device is
not either 512BYTE or 2048BYTE,
then the device will not be recognized.
• Use only a USB device formatted
to FAT 12/16/32.
• USB devices without USB I/F
authentication may not be recognizable.

I'll second this without any hesitation. Compared to manuals I've used in the past, this one has the award for being the hardest to flip through, page by page, and searching for stuff.
