So far no problems... I mounted a flush mount usb in my left glove box, that allows me to use usb or 3.5mm aux.... I decided to use a 16gb mini usb that barely sticks out in the glove box... The thumb drive is the size of a dime... It displays the song info (artist, album, title) you can even create folders.... Here's the links...

You can store approximately 3200 songs in MP3 format on a 16GB thumb drive. More if they are the smaller WMA format. They sell these everywhere. I think I found this one by SanDisk on sale at Office Depot while shopping for something totally unrelated for $12. The real small ones like this thumb drive are a little more expensive than the typical size flash drives.

Look to the right of the display screen. See the little button than looks like an eye? Hit it until you get the Artist - Song Title to show on the display. Mess around with it dude

It wasn't easy to get a good shot.... lol..... But this is mounted on the very front of the glove box. It doesn't take any room... I only use the usb but the 3.5mm Jack is there if I need it.
