    iPod use via the USB port and uConnect system - anyone?

    Does anyone here still use iPods for their in-car entertainment? If so, when connected to a uConnect system via the USB port, does the uConnect send a stop command to the iPod when you shut the car/uConnect system off? For that matter, if you use an iPod via the AUX connector (not sure why you would), how does it respond when hooked up there as well....

    I don't use an iPod, but do frequently listen to Podcasts via my IPhone 8 in my wife's 500 Sport. When I plug in my phone to the USB, the radio switches away to the phone and I can play whatever. Just as with the radio, when I shut the car off the radio shuts off and my Podcast stops until I start the car or plug the phone back into the cable.
    Seems to work fine.

    So you don't have to fumble around and find the point where you stopped listening - it's cued up at the stop point - that's good news

    Today I took an iPod into a dealer with a 2018 Abarth. The system WOULD NOT change artists, songs, etc., by using voice recognition. The iPod is an iPod Classic - 160gb drive.
    The sales dude, on a suggestion, got his iPhone 10s, and plugged it in (both via the USB port). The uConnect system kinda allowed us to change artists and songs. All I could surmise was the FCA people haven't done a great job making their head unit backwards-compatible.
    I say that because other cars DO allow song and artist VR changes.
    So, I guess a new iPod is in order if one intends to expect VR functions with the uConnect 5 system.

    The uConnect system will play MP3 music files but not FLAC files (higher quality lossless audio) I am forced to use the aux connector with my music player to access my large library of music in my 2016 Abarth. I will have to install a new head unit to play high res music.

    I transfered my entire iTunes folder onto a 64 gig USB and then play from it.

    Does uConnect respond to voice commands to change songs, artist, album from a Flash Drive?

    I never tried as I really don't use voice commands for anything.

    Not that I've ever seen either. If I want to skip a song on playback, I just push the little right arrow on the right cluster buttons of the head unit to skip up, and the left little arrow to go back. 'What, my $20,000 car won't respond to all my verbal commands??' This is a travesty!

    The manual clearly states the voice commands and how to use them, for sometimes UNDER $20,000. So yes, it bloody well should. But the three cars I tried, following FIAT’s manual, with an iPod hooked up, it failed.
    Maybe I expect too much from the English language....
