06 with no USB port

I have an 06 and it doesn't have a usb port in the back of the center console or may be I'm not looking in the right place. anyone have a pic of where it is located. One other thing if I burn a dvd with mp3 files will the nav dvd play them and will it display the list of songs on the nav display. Thanks for any help you can provide.

06/07 didn't come with a USB port

08 and on did

you should have a AUX jack behind your center console where the center passenger air vents are

I thought the Aux port at the rear center console came out in 2007. As for USB port, was that not located inside the console? For some reason, I thought I saw a post with a picture of the USB port (2008+ MY) in the center console area when you lift it up. Could be wrong though. I don't think 2006 had either, though.

Was an option. Not a standard. In the center console.

Are you sure you looked in the right place? I thought they were standard. Maybe not, but they should be on a car that costs this much.

My '08 has one, and that's mainly what I use for music. If you open the center console, and then lift the inner hinged plastic thing with the lid so you can get to the bottom, the USB and AUX ports are against the front wall. It's almost impossible to plug or unplug anything while sitting in the driver's seat, however. The console lid is in the way of your right elbow so you can't use your right hand, and it's buried too deep to easily use your left hand. Go figure.

Thanks for the help everyone. Thanks to the pics above I found the two square holes that look like a USB port could be installed and below that a hole that looks like a RCA jack would fit. I took it to the dealer and he said that he would see if there is a kit to make them usable. Should have an answer in a day or two. Will post the answer then and the cost should anyone be interested.
