Playing back music from an external source

Updated 6/27/2022

Playing back music from an external source

You can connect your own source to play back music using the car's USB port.

Connect your audio source

An external audio source, e.g. a mobile phone, a USB memory or an MP3 player, can be connected to the car via the connections between the front seats. You can control the audio playback from the car's centre display, right-hand keypad on the steering wheel or using voice control.

USB memory

Insert the USB memory into the USB port between the front seats.

Open the USB app from the app view and select what to play back.

Mp3 player and iPod®

Note

To start playback from iPod, use the iPod app (not USB).

When an iPod is used as audio source, the car's audio and media system has a menu structure that is similar to the iPod player's own menu structure.

Connect the MP3 player.

Start playback in the MP3 player.

Open the app (iPod or AUXAUX not available for cars of model year 2018 onwards.) from the app view in order to start the playback.

Changing between music players

If you have several devices connected simultaneously, such as a USB memory and a Bluetooth-connected mobile phone, for example, you can change between the sources by tapping on USB and Bluetooth in the centre display. The media player pauses the music when you change source and starts to play back the music from the new source automatically.
