Excellent thread! Could someone please address a specific question? I am planning to use a micro thumb drive to listen to a "talking book" on my trip next week. I will be accessing the audio playback via the USB port inside the console.

When we stop for fuel/food, will the story resume where we left off?

I know I said "a" question, however, I would be very pleased to hear that there also is a way to fast forward or fast reverse whatever is on this thumb drive.

Just askin....sam

Hi Sam
If its the same as my 535d, audio files resume from where you leave them. I have had several audiobooks and they do continue.
Hope that helps

Hmmmm, road trip with an audio book . . . I'm envious! I haven't had the "start/stop" experience so can't help there, but I'm pretty sure holding the "track forward/track back" buttons should fast forward and reverse.

Yes correct, they lay them out like a music album but with chapters of course and ff/rew works as with music

Hi All
I use a 32GB USB stick for music but the location of the USB socket in the armrest is very bad in the sense that if you put a heavy item in there like a camera you are likely to break the usb stick. I purchased a short 6" lead and connect the usb stick to the end of this, so less likely to break an expensive stick

Makes the compartment more user friendly too. Mines a bit awkward to locate, with a lead that would be a better option IMO.
