    Question USB audio interface - USB flash drive type & capacity

    Hello everyone! I will be acquiring a 2017 CR-V AWD Touring sometime soon. I want to prepare for a road trip by buying a USB flash drive (or two) that will be compatible with the new CR-V's USB audio interface.

    Is anyone aware of the type of USB flash drive that is supported (USB 2.0 or 3.0)? Is there a maximum capacity (8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, or more) for a USB flash drive? Is there a "format" (FAT16, FAT32, NTSB) that is recommended?

    I can't find this information anywhere online. The dealer reps don't know much about it. It would be frustrating to buy a 128GB or 256GB capacity drive only to find that the new CR-V rejects it as "unsupported."

    Please let me know if anyone has recommendations. Thanks!!


    - Chris S.

    Yes, I would also like to know. I am using the default formatting at 8 gig as I didn't know what to use. I picked up a 128 gig flash at Staples for $15.99.. and would like to use it.. thanks folks!

    I have used the same flash drive for 4 years and this is the third car. So USB 2.0 will work fine, no need for the extra speed. I have a 64 gig in mine. Have not tested for what the upper limit is. All the manual says is that over 245 MB is recommended.

    Thanks for adding that. I was hoping that the brand new, redesigned 2017 CR-V with added USB ports would support USB 3.0 and 256GB USB flash drives. I can't find any exact specs on the car, and from what I know about Honda audio systems (antiquated technology most times), I suspect that USB 2.0 with a 64GB USB flash drive may be its limit.

    I have a USB 3.0 64GB flash drive and it works fine.

    Does anyone know how to pause music from the USB Audio interface?

    In my '15 I simply choose a different input source, i.e. AM, FM, XM radio. When I choose to go back to the USB it picks up the song right where I left off.
    Enjoy the ride!

    So it seems like I'll buy 2 new 64GB USB 3.0 flash drives and format them as FAT32... that seems to be what works for a lot of people.

    I bought 2 64GB USB 3.0 Lexar JumpDrive S75 dongles at Staples today. I have a 128GB flash drive around here somewhere. Once I get the CR-V, I can experiment!

    Just out of curiosity. Do you have to put the USB drive in the same port as the Appleplay port? Or can it go in any port. I didn't see a mention of that in the manual.
