Hard Disk Drive (HDD)

The Navigation System HDD provides 15 gigabytes of storage for music, which is enough for approximately 3000 average-sized songs recorded from originally produced CDs. The system is set to record CDs automatically when they are inserted, but you can change this setting to manually record the entire CD or individual songs. Song and artist information is displayed on the navigation screen and music can be searched by song title, artist, genre, record date, or playlist using the interface dial or verbal commands with the Song by Voice™ feature. The Hard Disk Drive is accessed by pressing the HDD/AUX button. Depending on what devices are connected, pressing the button rotates through HDD, USB** connection, auxiliary input, and Bluetooth* Audio.
