Play music in iPhone on 35i without Navigation

I didn't select Navigation, but I wonder if I can play music on my iPhone5. There is one standard feature saying USB Audio Connection. Not sure what it is. I check the glove compartment, there is no USB port. Do I have to use AUX? Any suggestions?

No Nav either. My wife took one of her 16mg flash and loaded all her music and keeps that plugged into the USB port under the arm rest. Then she can access via the I-drive.

It sounds great. But somehow when I plugged my USB, I can't find anywhere from iDrive I can play them. I can see CD or AM/FM only.

Hmmm. Not in the car at the moment but there is something that maybe says external devices or similar? Hopefully someone will chime in or I'll check tonight.
