You are in the Toyota Yaris
What is this discussion about?
Toyota Yaris, Audio, Hatchback

I have a 2007 hatchback with the upgraded stereo system. I love that you can read the text and file names associated with a song when playing an MP3 CD. However I hate that longer file names/song names/artist names get cut off on the display. is there anyway to have the display scroll across the thing? or better yet is there rhyme or reason for each display? I have MP3s that have the title and artist in the file name and when i put it on the CD and try and listen to it in the car I get some thing like "MP3 Track 12" on all the text displays and I have no idea what i'm listening to (especially if I acquired the song by downloading means where nothing is labeled correctly)
in other words what exactly does each text setting refer to when creating the CD? ultimately Id like to be able to customize exactly what the display says so i cant tell what which track of which album of which artist in which folder I'm listening to. any ideas for harmonizing the yaris and computer?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
PS: I LOVE MY CAR!

Can someone please help me. From reading the manual, my understanding is that when I am playing my ipod through the aux outlet I should be able to see the text that goes with the music (song title, etc.) I am unable to do that. I also can't use the folder button for anything. Am I doing something wrong or did I misunderstand the manual.? Seems like a waste to have to use the ipod itself to control the music.

I am having the same exact problem. I took it back to the dealer and they didn't know what the problem is. Can someone please tell me who to contact to fix this?

I think it explains most of that in the owner's manual. I think it said that you hold down the text button for a few seconds and then it will scroll through all of the text. It also explains what it is displaying and in what order. It will display the folder, actual file name, artist name, album title, mp3 tag, etc... You can manually change all of that information on your computer before you burn the mp3 to your compact disc.

I don't use an ipod, I use a Creative Zen Micro, but I don't see how it could display the text on your car stereo display if you are using your headphone jack from your ipod to plug in to the auxillary jack. It is just a simple audio jack for sound to pass through, just like a headphone jack. I could be wrong, but it doesn't seem like it would be able to pass the text information through that auxillary plug/jack.

Hey Sweetgrl. I asked my dealer about the same problem with the ipod and no you are not suppose to see anything on the screen with it. The folder button is to use with the mp3 cds. Now my question is how do you compress the mp3s. I know how to do a data disc but how do you compress them to put more on there? and doesn't it lose the quality of songs?
#43 of 67 The auxiliary jack

I have a dumb question. When you hook up an iPod using the auxiliary jack, can you use the dashboard controls?

Instead of using mp3 format, use WMA... it's more compact. I use 96kbps, it's ok for using in the car, and again, saves space.

#46 of 67 MP3 CDs Problem
Sep 03, 2007 (10:59 am)
I'm owner of a 2007 Yaris Sedan, and I use my CD player the entire time. I always use MP3 CDs burned by me, with Nero Express. I tend to make different folders to make playlists, and they always play fine. And I always leave the session of the CD open.
My problem is, for example, I burned a CD with 2 playlists (folders). Two months later I want to add another playlist to the CD, and when I put it in, it plays all the songs that were there, but not the new ones. This also happened with a CD with no folders at all; it won't play the new burned files.
I have checked the CDs in another MP3 CD player and they sound fine.
Is the CD player incapable of doing so or am I doing something wrong?
