Kenwood is releasing four car stereos that includes a USB port for playback via USB storage devices. This is a great feature, but I ponder what kind of limitations there will be on the USB devices. Obviously mass storage devices like USB flash drives and portable hard drives would work, but would an iPod or other USB MP3 players work? These models have support for MP3, WMA and AAC. The models are the U717, U515, DPX-UO99 and DPX-UO77.
