USB behind drivers seat
 
I have a 2012 X2 and it has a USB port behind the drivers seat next to the 12 volt power outlet. I have plugged my iPhone into it and it does not charge it or show up as plugged into the head unit. If I plug my iPhone into the USB in the glove box it shows up and plays on the head unit. So my question: is the USB behind the drivers seat work the same way as the one in the glove box? Or is it wired differently? Maybe mine is broken.
Thank for your help.

They are different from what I understand. The one behind the seat is just a charger. I suggest that you look at a few after market additions to control or add music devices...

Clarion Remotes (need a Y cable, 30$) I bought the waterproof wireless remote.

Bluetooth audio

GPS Bluetooth (requires Navionics iPhone app or other compatible map app)
http://bad-elf.com/products/be-gps-2200/ (there are others, I like this one)

eBay or Amazon have better prices than the sites above...make sure you buy the right accessory compatible with your head unit, likely the CMD6 Clarion.

I think the usb behind the drivers seat is only to communicate with the BIG-Display. You can upload riderstats or updates to the BIG over this port. I have only the gdig and i think mine is not connected to anywhere.

Thank you for the fast reply. I was concerned about this USB. Anytime I feel something doesn't work on my boat it drives me crazy until it is fixed.

This may not be 100% related but its similar so I thought I could ask it here. I have an 07 x2 with the factory stereo as far as the head unit goes. I probably went through 10 aux cords this summer and was wondering if there was a way to add a blue tooth plug in to the back of the stock head unit if there isn't one.

I've got a JVC stereo that has a USB port..... but the only thing it will read is thumbdrives or jumpdrives/folders.
I can plug iPhone into it, the head unit will not see it, or charge it

just something to think about.....

FWIW....
Radio Shack has insurance on their cables..... it's like $1.99 for 3 years, no questions asked.... just bring in the broken cable

I go through a lot, because my head unit is in an overhead console on a vehicle

I'm unable to connect my USB device to the USB/AUX connector at the helm on my 2013 x10. It appears that there' s a "child proof lock" over it with a water proof cap. The USB connector is located deeper than usual and the child proof lock is made to prevent a std USB connector from fitting into the space and connecting with the deep USB connector. There is some type of screw but I'm unable to identify what type or how to unscrew and remove. Before I break it off any other suggestions?
thanks

PS my Clarion USB connector in the box works great!

The USB by the Helm is for updates and GPS Maps for the screen/display.

I loaded my navionics charts on a USB drive which I finally was able to connect to the USB at the Helm...but NO CHARTS on the Murphy LCS...still says contact your dealer...
Thoughts on how to load those charts I purchased for my other boat's nav system (read I don't want to pay $1200 for the same charts on my lakeboat...
