JVC puts a USB port in your dashboard

JVC puts a USB port in your dashboard

Recognizing that USB thumbdrives have become nearly universal, JVC added USB ports to the faceplates of a number of its 2006 line of car stereo head units. One example on display at CES is the KD-SH1000, a single-DIN CD receiver with a USB port in the right side of the interface, letting you easily plug in a drive full of music. The unit will play MP3- and WMA-format files off of the drive. The KD-SH1000 also accepts SD cards, which have the advantage of not protruding from their slots, unlike a USB drive. It accepts burned CD-R/RWs and displays graphics with its dot-matrix fluorescent screen.
