2012 USB Interface - Questions

Postby 01parrothead01 » Sun May 13, 2012 10:33 pm



Has anyone used the USB interface on the 2012 wing with a device that is not an Apple product? I am flying to TN at the end of the month to pick up my new wing and will have about 1,000 miles to get it home/break it in and I REALLY want to listen to my JB (note the username). So, is the trunk connection a standard USB? Male or female? What file formats are compatible (.wav, .mp3, .wma, .mp4, etc)? Is a particular file structure required? I have all of my music both on a micre SD card in a Blackberry, and on a standard USB thumbdrive - will either of these work? Are there other pieces of information that I really need to be aware of and haven't thought of yet? I realize that most of this information is probably in the Owner's Manual, but since I don't have access to that until I get there, I am trying to get prepared. Also, I would just drop by my local dealership and ask them, but I am currently on assignment and living outside the US with no access to a local dealership - certainly not one that sells the US models. Any assistance at all is greatly appreciated.

Oh, there has to be a way to find out for my fellow parrothead....something about listening to that music to make the miles fly by. I will do a little research, there has to be something on the net.

Damn, I am good....look at what I found....

I have not read through the detail yet, will do that and if it does not work, I will let you know. If it does work, start your research on this site.

Happy riding!!!

Mag,
Thank you very much. That will do the trick nicely - and the price is very reasonable. I guess I will look a bit strange boarding the plane with a helmet in one hand and a thumb drive in the other. :lol: But I wouldn't have it any other way!
BTW - that's a great looking 1500 in your avatar.

A "parrothead" is to Jimmy Buffett as a "deadhead" is to the Grateful Dead.

Phins Up!!

TY TY. Now I need to figure out how to hook up my Sirrius so I can have Margaritaville playing. Have a lot of plans for this ride.

Wow! Am I getting old. I knew that. I really did. I listen to Buffet all the time. Somehow it got past my feeble old mind. Also a Deadhead!

Yeah, you are getting old..... oh wait, so am I. I have 44 Jimmy Buffet albums. Been to a couple of Bob Bitchin's Latitudes and Attitudes parties where he was too, but he wouldn't remember me saying hello, cause I ain't nobody famous. And I also am a deadhead. Hail Garcia.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Jimmy Buffett did a free concert on the beach in Fort Walton Beach, Fl last year. I missed it but now I have a friend that lives there. She says she'll give me plenty of notice for this year and you can bet I'll be there. I'll post when I get the information for those of you that may want to go.
