3. I thought the main advantage of getting the iPod option was the ability to browse through your collections with the car's interface. This clearly would not allow for that, right?
I can't answer on the digital v analog issue, but I'm pretty sure the LCD display will show the USB drive's contents in a folder tree format. So you should be able to browse your drive just fine as long as you organize it properly in folders. I think it even can read the playlists.
