    AUX vs USB

    just installed a Pioneer FH-P8000BT. it has AUX and USB output. so here is my question. first of all, i have a itouch. and now i have to choose either one of them to play music. both have their advantages. usb charges my itouch when it plays music, but i need to select songs from the headunit(isnt that convenience for me) . aux allows me to select songs without charging it(easier to display what is playing.
    So, any thoughts guys/ladies? or which one would you like?

    I personally use the USB feature. I like to plug my player in, set it and forget it. Player happily charges while in my glove department.

    I use USB on my Kenwood excelon. I like that I don't have to worry about my battery life. I also have the option to control the songs from my ipod when using my usb, but I just use the head units interface so i don't have to keep unlocking my ipod to skip a song. I have a big playlist loaded with songs that i like and just let that shuffle.

    I guess one question to ask is how often do you need to mess around with your playlist? I know I can navigate through my HU okay but I rather just set up a playlist and forget about it.

    The nav units do not come with a USB.
