Your car may be able to play music straight from your iPod or other portable music player. To do this, your car must have the multi-information display system (not standard equipment). Here’s how to connect and listen to your player:

  2. Turn on the radio.

  3. Connect your iPod to the USB connector in the center console.

  4. Press the AUX button on the radio.

  5. Use the large selector knob to change the volume.

  6. Push the center button on the knob and then turn left or right to navigate the files on your iPod.

  7. To see the menu items, press the setup button.

  8. Use seek and skip to change songs while they’re playing.

  9. Use the back button to go back one step.

Tips

  • You’ll see the USB indicator on your display when the device is successfully connected.

  • You’ll see album art displayed if it’s available.
