    Just bought a new Nano and it works fine most of the time, but then it will pop up with USB ERROR on the console and the music stops. The only way to get it to work again is to shut the car off and restart. Doing a little research, it appears this has been a problem for some time, but I haven't found a solution to the problem.

    Anyone have an idea on this?

    Thanks!

    What version iPod Nano? What firmware is it on? What firmware is your car interface on? Any updates available?

    It is a 7th generation nano running software version 1.1.1.

    Not sure about the car interface version.

    The latest I have is 1.0.4 and iTunes doesn't show any available updates.

    Hmmm. Interesting. And it's a 7th gen nano? I just confirmed mine was 7th gen.

    Interestingly enough, I can see when it is about to crap out. The left-to-right scroll that shows how far along you are on the song starts to slow down. Eventually the song ends, but the progress bar still shows about a half-inch left to go on my Honda 2013 C-RV. The next song will start and play for a while, and then silence and the dreaded USB ERROR shows up. Using your steering wheel controls, USB is no longer a source that appears that you can select. Just AM, FM Bluetooth, SiriusXM.

    I would try it with another ipod or music device to rule out that it's actually the iPod Nano 7th Gen.

    I ended up returning the Nano and bought the Touch. Works perfectly with my Honda now.
