I have a Limited with the theater stuff. Screen in back of front seats and blu-ray player etc. So, you put the CD in that blu-ray player and turn on the Uconnect Theater, select, disc or screen 1 or 2 then select " Listen in" and you will be able to listen through the car speakers. I use my CD player as well. I wish it had cassette!! LOL.You are absolutely correct - just another senior moment! I will try your referenced solution.
or if yours didn't come with the U connect theater, you can add a cd player......
