I pick up a 2014 Skoda Rapid next Monday, it has a USB port and 3.5 micro socket. I had hoped to be able to use my iPod classic in the USB port, but after a bit of research apparently it doesn't work with iPods. I am told it should work with a USB stick. But I can't find any info on what type of USB stick or the max GB to buy. All my music is in mp3 format, nothing from iTunes, so format should hopefully be OK. Have asked advice on several car forums but no help given. Any advice appreciated.

I like SanDisk Ultra Fit. They are tiny.

I use a 32gb in my i20.

Call Skoda customer service. They should be able to advise on what size you can go up to.

I doubt there is a specific set that can be used in cars.

I've got an unbranded (technically) one in my car which works fine.

Make sure, as silly as it sounds, that your music will be in MP3. Reason being is that most new music is now MP4. You can however download Realplayer Converter for free and you can change them in that

Use your ipod in the 3.5 aux socket

Nah, your completely wrong there and muddying the waters.
mp4 is a video file, if you're buying you music that way, you've been conned.
But you can extract the mp3 from one.

Sorted, 32 gb works fine. Just made mistake in ordering the very small physical size one,very fiddly putting into car USB socket. Probably by another 32gb one but not so small.

At least with the short stick, you won't snap it in half when you go to turn the volume down without looking, and with 32Gb, just full it up and leave it there!
