Yeah you can have mine Dave, I hate it ;)
Got it last week and can't understand why it stops playing after each album so back to the trusted HDD.

Then if I want to use my iPod I'll have to have the original connection point? Lame.


You don't need aux for iPod, USB only works fine if you have latest update installed.

It connects to the loom that goes to the stereo.

yo,

 

Does the second port charge usb devices? I appreciate you have discovered it is not live to the radio.

 

If it does this may be a neater solution than running the 12v to charge.

Anyone know if you can have an iPod lead with a mini USB instead of the normal USB then?

Ok then I've just had another look and it seems that there is power coming from the second USB but no data is being taken from my HD or USB stick.

The drive will spin up but come up with an error message.

Max well be that it's providing power but not enough to run an un-powered drive.
Try plugging a phone charger cable or something similar to see if it provides enough voltage to initiate a charge cycle.
The socket may be dedicated for module updates or such like only.

Honestly a USB stick might be best than a harddrive, harddrives need quite a bit of power. Or a solid state drive, but let's face it a USB stick these days can be picked up for peanuts.

 

And thanks for the link, I'll give that connector a go :P

 

So have we found if both plugs are powered or is it just the 1?

Memory stick used in spare port gave me power but nothing else.
Other port worked fine with my memory stick and HDD so I'm at a loss as to why the spare port has power but nothing else.

Hmm, nothing I can find on the American Fiesta that isn't on ours to do with the audio system, could be for some sort of charging but not sure really.

 

Apparantly works on Focus' for at least an iPod.
