USB interface in the Cayenne

You cannot connect USB devices that require the installation of special drivers. The use of a USB hub is not permitted.
It is impossible to guarantee system compatibility with all memory sticks and MP3 players due to the rate of development of the USB media market.
USB devices with increased power requirement (e.g. fixed disk) can possibly not be operated.

It is recommended not to leave USB devices in the vehicle for long periods of time as extreme ambient conditions (temperature, humidity) can occur in vehicles.
