Aux and music question. I'm a newbie.

Recently got a punto evo 1.4 and am currently learning to drive. I am traveling up to my fathers this weekend who is then driving the car back to my place where it will sit until I pass my test. I am yet to get in the car and have only got to see photos.

I know there are multiple posts about this but I haven't seen answers to a couple of questions. Obviously I'll have a look this weekend but it would be good to know what I'm working with.

I know that I can go down the route of a USB stick which I don't mind doing. Can someone tell me how the USB stick titles/shows the music and how easy it is to find tracks you wnat. I.E. does each folder come up on the menu so if each album is in its folder you can locate the songs that way?

If you use a USB adapter for iPhone do you select the music on the iphone itself or do you use the menu system again to locate the music and does this once again show the music by artist etc?

If I wanted to use an aux cable is this an easy thing to do or is it a case of literally removing the front panel?

hey, im not to sure about using the USB and whether it shows the track names as mine doesn't have a USB port, BUT, in regards to the AUX, im a newbie also and didn't have a clue what to do or where to look for it! I bought one from amazon on Wednesday for 1.99, (4.00 p&p). it arrived today and included the clips to take the head unit out! the whole process of fitting it took me 5 minutes! although the cable itself is cheap, it has got great sound quality, with none of the "crackling" noise you get with others! it wont let me put the link for the page in as I haven't posted enough, but if you go onto amazon and type this into the search bar "For Fiat Grande Punto 3.5mm Jack Aux IN Gold Plated Input Adapter Lead Cable + 2 Radio Keys For iPhone iPod MP3 Mobile phones " it'll come straight up. its really easy to fit also!



hope this helps you out a little bit

Hi mate the USB shows track name and artist name on your radio unit also you can use your USB options in the multimedia menu using your steering wheel controls to find an album or individual songs

Not meaning to hijack a thread, but which format provides the best sound quality: WMA or MP3?
