Long-time smart owner in need of help with radio (iPhone)

Hi, all.

I am the proud owner of a 2011 fortwo. I've always listened to music in the car with a flash drive plugged into the USB port in the glove compartment. I had the same experience others have had connecting an iPod and iPhone. Is there any upgrade I could make to the radio, app I could download, etc. that would make it possible for me to control my music directly from my iPhone?

Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,

I have an older smart with the 3mm jack and plug my iPhone directly into that. But, with the proper cables/adapters, you could plug your iPhone into the same port you used for the flash drive. Chances are good that will solve your problem.
