Default 8.4 inch touch screen and uconnect questions!

Hallo

I'm new in this forum. I bought the new Fiat Freemont here in Switzerland, which is the same as the Dodge Journey in USA, with the 8.4 touch screen system. Now my questions:

1) Does the system copy and store MP3 files that are on a SD card internally? I used a SD card, the information was read and then I used another SD Card with no MP3 files on it, but I still could play the music that was stoerd on the previous SD card ?????

2) Why are not all album-covers shown? All files are correctly tagged. This happens even when I use my iPod connected by USB.

3) What ist the Music Info Cleanup powered by Gracenote and why are album-covers not shown at all, when it's switched off?

I hope anybody has answers. Than you for helping me.

Best regards Cris

Sorry, very few people keep or use the stock system that comes with the cars/trucks. Most people upgrade to after market.

Upgrading that system wouldn't be an easy change out like most of the other radios.

yes, however as I mentioned, that would not be an easy task for your vehicle. With the simple NAV radios or base cd players, they can easily be changed for an aftermarket radio, amp & speakers.

The problem is that I am really stisfied with all the functions but the "album artwork showing capoability".

Waht radio brands with mp3player/navi/iphonen functions can you recommend?
