Simply plug a USB stick or MP3 player into the USB console to enjoy your favourite songs while you’re driving. Your compact “best of” collection can be your constant, easy-to-use companion when you’re on the road in your Audi A3, A4, A4 Cabriolet or Audi TT.
The USB port is located in the vehicle glove box. This means that it is not possible to operate the USB console, the CD changer and the iPod adapter simultaneously, as all three devices use the same connection to the radio/navigation system. Memory sticks can be connected directly, MP3 players via a conventional USB extension lead.
You can play music files from your USB stick or MP3 player via your car’s radio or optional leather-covered multifunction steering wheel. Operation is via the CD changer controls. Instead of six different CDs, you can select from up to six folders (which are still identified as CDs in the display), and play the songs via your vehicle’s sound system. Track details (such as the song title and artist) cannot be displayed.
Compatible media and music files
The USB port supports the following file formats: mp3, wma, wav and ogg vorbis. Some storage media and players have already been tested by AUDI AG for compatibility with the console and are listed in the operating instructions. They guarantee full functionality of the console. It is recommended to check that all other players and sticks bear the USB certificate “Certified USB™” or “Certified High Speed USB™”.
