You can't put iTunes as such on it, but you should be able to put non DRM'd mp3's on it.

Check on the radio though that you have the option to switch the input to USB, it may be its only been added as a charger supply to an external device such as an iPod or mobile phone. In which case you may also have an AUX input where you can connect the iPod via a lead that plugs into the iPods headphone jack. The Input on the radio would then be switched to AUX to listen to the output from the iPod, iPhone, MP3 device through the truck speakers.

The radio does see the USB port -- when you switch input --and get to the USB the radio tells you (nothing connected)


Will my mini encode a Thumb Drive with other formats ? so i can use it ?

The radio also has a Aux input so i can hook up a Ipod shuffle
