    The USB connection on older CR-Vs is only USB 1 & 2 compatable - have any of you 4th Generation owners tested the new one with USB 3 - if so does it work. :Unknown:

    I'll let you know when I get mine in a couple of weeks.

    I'm sure another existing 4th Generation owner will tell you when they see this thread.

    I have my doubts USB 3 will work or the system will have backward compatibility for it to work. Honda in their recently technical bulletins have advised dealers to reinforce customer looking for USB stick with the approved USB logo.

    I will get the exact details of the TSB later tonight when I get home.

    Thanks Ichibanaccord - usb 3 is the latest form of usb and is about 10x as fast as usb 2 hence music transition and search should run considerably faster. Surely the Honda system would need forward rather than backward compatability ? The approved usb logo is evident on usb 3 but is generally blue rather than white.
