A few quick questions about the MMCS system from a potential new buyer
I took an '08 Outlander XLS out for a test drive this past weekend and was pretty much liking everything about the vehicle. I had two questions for the salesman about the MMCS navi system though that stumped him and I don't think he even knew what I was talking about, so I stumbled across this forum and was hoping someone here could answer a couple quick questions. If these have been posted before, forgive me...
First, I had asked him if the MMCS will allow playback of MP3s burned onto a DVDR. He said he was pretty sure it would. After a quick glance at the MMCS manual it pretty much seemed to state that you have to use CD-Rs though but didn't really say anything about DVDs.
Second I had asked if I could take a CDR or a DVDR with MP3s on it and just have the MMCS system copy the files to the HDD. He said he was pretty sure that could be done too, but I have a feeling the only way of copying audio to the HDD is with an actual audio CD and it won't just "copy" MP3s or WMAs to the HDD.
I'd guess one of the Outie owners here could answer these two quick questions in a minute or so. I'd appreciate knowing before I make my final decision. Currently I have a USB-equipped head unit installed in my vehicle and it almost seems like the MMCS would be taking a step back as far as audio usability is concerned. I love being able to pop in a USB flash drive into the unit and just taking off. I know the MMCS is pretty to look at and has all kinds of little bells and whistles, but is it really worth getting this unit over the standard stereo?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out here with this.
