Default Head unit questions

Can headunits with usb for ipods read mp3s off of a flashdrive? I'd like to just be able to turn on my radio and have songs playing from a 32gb flash drive instead of mucking around trying to untangle a 3.5mm cable and pulling the rubber port guard for my phones 3.5mm connection.

BTW, I'm talking of course about something like this:

Yes. And the usb port on the aftermarket radios is for the ipod too. Same cable you use to charge it on the pc...

Just don't expect anymore than 32gb. The units are only designed to take advantage of fat32 file formatting.

Anything with USB support should play audio files so long as the head unit supports the format (mp3, WMA, FLAC, AAC etc).
