asked this in another thread but I think I will get more info on here about usb

1st I need confirmation, is the usb interface in the armrest 1.0, 2.0 or 2.1? If 1.0 or 2.0, that explains a lot and brings me to the main question, is it possible to upgrade the line to 2.1 or better yet 3.0?

I seriously doubt it's over 2.0 mainly because why should it be? That being said, I also seriously doubt it could be upgraded since USB is a spec dependent upon the host controller, i.e. the head unit of your car. You cant just upgrade something like this. Would be like trying to upgrade your dvd player to bluray, too much of the internal configuration is built around it.

What are you trying to do with USB anyway? I'd think even 1.0 would be sufficient for streaming music. But it's probably 2.0 since the 1.0 standard is so old it would probably be easier to just rely on more readily available parts to manufacture a 2.0 device.

I figured, my mp3 works fine, but my usb hard disk drive doesn't, well its finicky. My hdd from my ps3 is now in an external usb case, but the case requires minimum 2.1, not even 2.0... b my mp3 is 16GB, my hdd is 80GB...
