    USB Hub Work

    Hi guys, does anyone know if a USB Hub will work with the car? I tried a Belkin hub, but it seems to only charge my devices and no media is working. If there is a hub out there that works, please let me know. Thanks!

    It is not whether the USB hub will work or not. It has to do whether the logic in the car can support more than one device. You need logic to be able to recognize and differentiate the devices, don't believe ct200h got this logic capability... it is rather retarded.

    That is too bad. Well, if anyone finds out a solution to this that would be great.

    Do you really need to control multiple device or just control 1 device and charge the rest? If just controlling 1 device, you could just leave usb for the controlling device and get a 12v adapter to 2 USBs for charging 2 other devices.

    I was hoping to plug multiple devices in the car (tablet, usb, my phone), not as much as controlling them, but having the ability to switch in between them is what I was hoping to do.

    If your tablet and phone have bluetooth, you could just use your USB hub to charge them and use bluetooth connections to switch between them. With bluetooth audio, you could select which device you are connecting. It is very easy to switch if you have NAV (just a few mouse clicks). I found the sound quality from bluetooth better than the one from USB.

    I thought I was the only one who felt USB media playback was muffled. CD rom audio was good too.

    Thanks for the idea! I got both on the bluetooth and its great, but my transformer seems to lag a little before its gets to a normal streaming speed.

    I think "muffled" is same description I would give. I wasn't even trying to play the iPhone via USB. I was just using it to charge the phone, and it started playing. I thought the sound seems a little "muffled", so I started playing around between USB and bluetooth and sure enough the bluetooth sound was more crisp.

    The same thing with XM and FM. I have the same station KIIS on both and it sounded better on FM than XM.

    I don't have any CD, so I don't even know if the CD player works or not

    Does your asus transformer have 3G on its own or is it using your phone wifi hotspot? Maybe it takes a while for it to establish connection thru your phone?
