Pretty sure the glove box USB is just to upload songs to vehicle hard drive, can't be used as a regular usb like the one in the arm rest. It's that way in my F30, correct me if i'm wrong if it's not like that for the 2 series.

M2ME2, I just read in this forum in the 3 series threads that someone had the same issue. he brought it to the attention of his dealership and I think they configured the USB or software incorrectly.

The dealership fixed it and now both his USB plugs function identically.

I'll try to find the thread.

EDIT:
Sorry, I think I misread. I think you're right, seems like the glove USB is only for loading songs to the HD or attaching a music player?

Do you find using a memory stick or hard drive useful? I had tried a memory stick in the X5 and I had to navigate it like a file directory completely loosing any artist, playlist, etc. functionality of an iPod. That and exporting files rather than syncing was too much of a PITA. Or was I doing something incorrectly?

I've been using a hard drive for years on my 135i. As long as you put everything in the correct folders it's easy to navigate. The only problem I have is that I'm on my 5th or 6th hard drive as they keep getting damaged.

Current owners: does the glove box USB work if I just have an iPod hooked up to it for music alone? I am a bit confused by the statements above.

Or will I need to use a stick for the files? I want to keep them at 320 kbps (unless it plays FLAC?), so loading onto the hard drive isn't really something I want to do as it downgrades quality.

There's no USB port in the glove box of my M2. There's a blank cover which I removed, but there's nothing behind it.

Not in mine either. Just a switch to keep the trunk locked.

Unfortunately the handle in the trunk still bypasses this lock. Don't ask me why I know this...

That makes sense, I think it's more to keep intruders out than it is to keep hookers in. They're usually dead anyways
