I'm reading the Fusion manual now, and am about at a point where I'm about to use a flash drive with mp3s, playlists by folder as I'm at a loss.
Oh, also, the fusion doesnt work with the iphone 5. at least not the internal deck connection, you'd have to use usb, which again presents the aforementioned problem. I dont use anything mac so switching to an ipod/iphone is not an option.
If you use a Genuine
Apple 40 pin to lightning adapter, an IPhone 5 will work with Fusion gear. I have tried several aftermarket
adapters and they won't stream music. I have bought a Fusion 40pin cable and a genuine Apple adapter and I have full functionality with my 5 and just remove the adapter and it works with older IPhones and IPods. Downside is my internal dock is no longer used.
Having said that, I have a IP500 head unit and they are different. The cable is not listed as compatible with a IP700, but I would think if you were careful, it would be possible to use the adapter directly into the dock, and plug the 5 into that.
