How do I play music using a USB through SYNC®*?

When a device is plugged into the vehicle's USB port, SYNC  will try to read the contents and determine if any supported music files are found.

The system will index any supported music files that are found. The SYNC system will then attempt to build speech commands from the indexed music files.

To ensure proper operation, you must ensure that your music files' metadata is accurate.

The supported music file types are .mp3, .wma, .wav, and .aac.

Playback of a USB device is initiated with the voice command “USB” or by using the menu/screen of the SYNC system. The specific information on starting USB playback, including what voice commands are available, can be found in the Owner's Manual.

You can also use SYNC voice commands for USB playback.


*Don’t drive while distracted. Use voice-operated systems when possible; don’t use handheld devices while driving. Some features may be locked out while the vehicle is in gear. Not all features are compatible with all phones.
