The stock stereo can play mp3 and wma files via the input jack on the radio(as long as your mp3 player is capable of playing wma files). I do not think the stock stereo can play mp3 CD's. I believe you have to upgrade the radio for mp3 playback from CD. Maybe DodgeInfoCenter or SilverFox can confirm this.was98strat said:Anyone know if the stock stereo's can play WMA files as well as mp3 files?
Well technically it’s true. The standard radio will play mp3s through the AUX jack while the remaining units will play mp3 cd’s. I understand what you’re saying though.was98strat said:ah, but if you look at the website, that's not what dodge says "Caliber's radio's are mp3 compatible"... Man I hate those marketing types sometimes!!!
Yes, it's quite unbelievable. The salesguy was telling me that the CD player did play mp3 CDs... NOT.was98strat said:hmmm, That's a pretty cheap way of saying your stereo is mp3 compatible!! ...I guess car companies still don't quite "get" the mp3 thing yet!!
Yep!!!sr4tuner said:Hm i would have thought mp3 on a cd would be possible by now to be stock... kind of dissapointing.
The aux input does not show playlist.Fuzz 40 said:Personally I would rather have the aux input so I can hook up my ipod. That way I can use my play lists and create new ones with out having to burn new mp3 cds all the time. But that is just my preference.
Is it the base radio? You're talking about the one in your Caliber right? And are those mp3 CDs filled with mp3 files (and not AIFF or WMA files)?Amandyke said:My stereo plays MP3 cd's...
agreed. i like having my 60gigs of music wherever i go.Silverfox said:With the auxiliary jack, you could use just about any third-party MP3 player (iPods are especially good) and have thousands of MP3s right at your fingertips. In esseence, the Calibers with the auxiliary jack have better capabilities than the Calibers with the MP3 CD capabilities. You're limited to however many MP3s you can burn to a disc (or six) and you have to go through the hassle of burning them every time. With the auxiliary jack, all you have to do is plug in and go.
