Unless you have an iPhone with the latest OS. Right now the ONLY way I can play files is by using Bluetooth as the connection. The USB port is only working as a charger for me now. (It did connect to play mp3s and GPS when I first got the van.)

I have the base radio (no AUX).... Format a USB stick using fat32 in your PC.
Then transfer music to it..Folders and all..
Jam the stick into the USB slot near the key..
press SRC on the radio..and there's all your USB music!

That works for music, but I also listen to a lot of podcasts that get updated daily to my phone. PITA to keep loading a USB stick.

1st World Problem!

Just loaded iOS 8.0.2 - there are some connectivity fixes in the update, will have to test it all again. I have similar (but not exactly the same) issues with the UConnect 6.5 on my Fiat 500L - hope for a fix or software update tomorrow at the dealer.
