i tried thumb drive, per manual, still no luckYes, I'd like to know this too. I have not got it working yet, but want to try. The owner's manual says:
"Only the following file extensions
are supported: *.jpg, *.bmp,
. Animated GIF is not supported.
. Some files may not operate due
to a different format or the
condition of the file."
Seems like it wants a thumb drive, and refuses to find image files on a smartphone. Why would we want to look at images or slideshows in the car?
IT WORKS!!! I got photo and video playback both to work. Video continued to play even as I shifted into D and pulled the car forward - that surprised me, I'd have thought the safety lawyer Nazis would have strictly forbidden this. I did not take it out on the road, so perhaps there is a 5mph limit or something like that.Using FAT32, doesn't work, any other people tried ?
Sorry didn't see your post before my last post. But YES, IT WORKS! To summarized:It appears to me that the car runs the file directly from the thumb drive.
Can Apple Car Play or Android Auto do this? I'm not in my car so I can't check. NBA game time App shows up on the Car Play screen. I'm not about to try watching a game while driving though.I was sure hoping that it would be able to view video/pictures USB off a cell phone.
I don't believe either AA or the Bolt can do this. My android phone is not recognized as a supported device for this purpose, and AA tries not to allow any driver distractions - pix and videos would seem to be the kind of distraction they want to avoid.Can Apple Car Play or Android Auto do this?
