I believe it's simply an alternative to the USB for music.

Thanks. Seems silly with Aux, USB and Bluetooth to also need a SD slot for music. I have never known anyone that would use SD for music.

I do. The SD does not stick out like a USB would.

Just today, there was a thread about using the card, because the stick stuck out to far & get hit when closing the lid, etc.

I use mine all the time. I have about 1800 songs on the SD card. I also have a USB that I listen to when the wife is not in the truck (oldies instead of country). I won't pay for Sirrus (SP). I am getting a 2017 and I think the SD slot was eliminated on the 2017's so I will have to transfer all the music from the SD to a USB.

I have something like 3500 songs on an SD card in the Ram. I used to have a Micro SD slot in the Pioneer head Unit in my Jeep WK, and loved it.

I prefer it to USB, and Bluetooth Audio is ok I guess...but I don't use it very often.

I dig it.

Cool

Micro SD allows for alot of songs and use the usb adapter which is smaller than most usb sticks.
