Agreed! To me, USB trumps CDs for music but my smartphone trumps them both. Between phone and XM radio I am totally set for music, news, comedy. When I head out on a long trips though I like to swing by the library and grab a couple free books on CD to listen to.
I suspect there's a far more direct way to play CDs and I just haven't figured it out yet. I showed what I've been doing here with the hope that someone will show me with a far better way. I think I should be able to just shove it in and press NO buttons (especially if the back monitors aren't being used). What else could Uconnect possibly think I want to do when I shove in a CD, right?
