The USB port can be used to control an iPod or a USB storage device.

To connect an iPod, connect one end of the USB cable that came with the iPod to the iPod’s dock connector and connect the other end to the USB port located in the instrument panel storage area.

If the vehicle is on and the USB connection works, “OK to disconnect” and a GM logo may appear on the iPod, and iPod appears on the radio's display.

The iPod music appears on the radio’s display and begins playing.

The iPod charges while it is connected to the vehicle if the vehicle is in the ACC/ACCESSORY or ON/RUN position. When the vehicle is turned off, the iPod automatically powers off and will not charge or draw power from the vehicle's battery.

If you have an older iPod model that is not supported, it can still be used by connecting it to the Auxiliary Input Jack using a standard 3.5 mm (1/8 in) stereo cable. See Clock on page 5‑8 for more information.
