The navigation system has an auxiliary input jack located on the faceplate and in the center console. This is not an audio output; do not plug the headphone set into the front auxiliary input jack. An external audio device such as an iPod, laptop computer, MP3 player, CD player, or cassette tape player, etc. can be connected to the auxiliary input jack for use as another audio source.

Drivers are encouraged to set up any auxiliary device while the vehicle is in P (Park). See Defensive Driving   for more information on driver distraction.

To use a portable audio player, connect a 1/8 in (3.5 mm) cable to the radio's front auxiliary input jack. When a device is connected, press AUDIO, then press AUDIO again until AUX is selected or press the AUX screen button to begin playing audio from the device over the vehicle speakers.

For optimal sound quality, increase the portable audio device's volume to the loudest level.

It is always best to power the portable audio device through its own battery while playing.

The vehicle may have a rear entertainment system (RSE) with a second and third row screen. The RSE has audio adapters to allow you to connect auxiliary devices. The audio can be heard through the speakers or through the wireless or wired headphones. See the Rear Seat Infotainment user guide for more information.
