Thumbdrive storage size.

Anyone know the highest capacity USB thumbdrive we can use in the CX-3?
I'm currently using a tiny 32G Patriot drive, and it works well.

Also, did I read somewhere, we cannot use USB 3.0?

I run a 64Gb USB 3.0 but I don't think it reads at 3.0. Either way, I cut down the size of what's on the key (used to be filled to the brim) because it was soooooo sllloooooowww for the car to parse the titles. Wish it had a memory cache of some sort that would re-init only if it detected a different key but no. I have about 50Gb free on that 64Gb key now :/

Thanks

OK, so we can use at least a 64Gb. I wonder if it would take a 128?
And yeah, leave some room as to not max the capacity out.

So it will read a 3.0, but at the 2.0 speed, is that the way that works?

I know from taking a quick glance on Amazon, seems like there is more of a selection of 3.0 drives and 2.0 drives are starting to get scarce.
