    I just checked the 1000 question section- but am hoping some of you owners can elaborate on the Fender Audio system. Can you play MP3's, from a USB disk on key, via the Fender audio? It appears you need a cable to change the MDI to do this (instead of an ipod). This is actually critical for me- I regularly record internet radio and play it in the car. Thanks everyone... John

    There is also the round input device ( sorry not sure what it is called ) by the ipod cable you can plug into..... Plug would look like a mini ear phone jack or old mic jack. I would assume earphone on your phone to this port in the car.

    Hope this helps
