Is the USB input in the new 09's worth it?

I'm checking out my options on a new Cobalt...has anyone upgraded to the USB input on the factory stereos? I'm just curious on wondering what it'll run. I have Creative Zune that would work great but...if i could fit every bit of music on a flash drive and play it that way, that would be awesome!

I know it works with the iPod and flash drives. Since Creative is a Windows Media device, it stores and presents all of its music as if it were a flash drive, so I bet it would work. Why not bring your mp3 player with you to the dealership and try it out?

Yes, I have had my car for about 2 weeks now and only use my usb jump drive. 16GB of most of my music is nice to have where ever I go. It wasn't a feature that I was looking into but I don't think I could do without now.

I've got the Victory Red LT Sedan and it came with USB radio. It was a deal breaker for me if it didn't have one. I listen to my iPod exclusively and it works great. I have plugged a USB drive in with folders of music and it also plays great. All controls are selectable from the radio and you have most of the iPod menu with a three line display and you can also select folders and artist, songs etc with a USB drive plugged in.
