Does anyone haave any idea how the audio is sorted when played from a thumb drive? I listen to a podcast (http://www.mikeomearashow.com/) for my commute and they label their shows by date. I tried loading them to the thumb drive and they were all out of order when I tried to play them. Anyone have a clue how I can order them correctly? :confused:

Some of the info from the FIAT 500 USA Navigation and Multimedia Manual, I have it in PDF form so perhaps I could send it to you if needed, sorry I didn't re-type things for a better layout and just pasted it over so it looks a bit weird here I'm sure. Hope it somehow helps though.

I have no idea what Tweak's going on about. On my car, the system default order seems to be timestamp of the file itself, so the first song I copied to the drive plays first, and so on. Annoyingly, several default files on my iPod (low battery warning, please connect to iTunes) play first since they pre-date anything I loaded.

Just a copy & paste from the manual about some of the playback specifics for Blue & Me.

No worries epb, and mneuman there is a good bit more in the manual but I won't be copying that over, the above looks like an insane amount and without properly formatting it is overwhelming to have to weed through.
One of the things I've been wanting to do and have yet to is call Fiat and get a proper paper manual sent. The cd is just a PITA. It's much too cumbersome to bring your laptop in the bathroom with you for some light reading. :D

I have 4 PDF manuals and one eBrochure for the FIAT if you'd like any or all of them I am happy to share. I also have the manual that came with the car and the one on the DVD but some of these are from online sources right after I bought my 500, one may be the same as what is on the DVD but I cannot recall, all your and anyone else that wants it. Download for 4 Fiat 500 manuals and 1 eBrochure: http://www.datafilehost.com/download-b953d16d.html

Though I've usually got my iPad with me, yeah, I'm glad I got the paper ones for quick flip-thrus. Took about 3 days to get them from Chrysler via UPS, by the way.

I find it odd people did not get a paper manual, mine came with a red leather-like wallet and paper manual as well as the DVD based information and manual.
I - and I suspect mneuman916 - got that as well. The paper manual that comes with the car is a quick guide and doesn't contain all of the content on the DVD. The full manual is ~300 pages and has everything.

Good to know! I never paid much attention to it since I have so many PDF manuals to look to, it is in fact a "User Guide" and is comprised of 68 pages.
