Volkswagen to offer onboard, radio-controlled universal USB connector

Volkswagen universal usb connector

Several new Volkswagen models are going to be featuring a handy universal USB connector built into the center armrest, such that you can plug in any old USB thumb drive or USB-connecting MP3 player and use the car's radio controls to navigate and play the music collection on that memory stick or player. They'll be starting with the Golf, Golf Plus and Touran models, expanding into other VWs in the line next year. It looks like the only format that will be supported is MP3, which is disappointing — but if the majority of your collection is in MP3 format, you'll surely be psyched to integrate all your mass storage media in conjugal bliss with your vehicle.
