      100% Agreed on Media Monkey. It's the best music/video management app I've seen. I keep mine sorted by Genre/Artist/Album, but only have a 32GB card so I don't have my full collection on it. My total songs is in the 3k mark, but the folders are only in the 600-900 range.

      Another vote for Media Monkey! Have all my music sorted through that program and it all works great, imo. Artist/Album/Song. Almost 6k songs in my Dart on a 32gb SD card, no problems what-so-ever. Over 15k songs on my computer. Love Media Monkey.

      I have a Dodge Journey 2011, your forum help me for found the solution to see my complete iTunes library (70gb / 8000 songs)
      First SDXC (Fat32) don't work in my 2011 Journey, only SDHC (Fat32), so I'm limited to 32gb cards. I decide to use a 128gb (Fat32) USB stick and it work great.

      The first try, my system recognize only 5999 songs. As you can read on this thread, Uconnect is enable to read only 1024 folders, and my song are organized by Artist/Album/Songs. I need to eliminate some folders and organize my usb stick only by Artist/Songs. After that, I can see all my 8000 songs.

      For do that on Mac Os X :

      I've use the 5$ application M3Unify from DougScripts. (Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes - M3Unify - M3U Playlist Maker and File Exporter - v1.4.0)
      This application can synchronize all songs, and playlist on your USB stick / SD Card.
      For the playlists, you need to export 1 playlist at a time. (By drag and drop in the application)
      With this application you can export songs by creating only artist or album folder if you want, so this is reduce the number of folders.

      After a synchronization on the stick, Uconnect system need approximately 15min for enable navigation by Artist / Playlist / Albums...

      Unfortunately my 2011 Uconnect (Updated in 2015) don't allow me to see Artwork, even if all artworks are embedded in each song.

      Sorry for my bad english !

      That would likely require a software upgrade, and I wouldn't hold my breath for it.

      Just like the fake Pandora integration. I keep hoping for an update to make it actual integration, and not just a remote player pause-skip option.

      And in case you ask, yes, there are ways to update the database...

      I'm not saying that it's easy, though. Yet...
      I know it's old, but any luck with this?

      I found this post from Tanbam on a Google Search,

      "There is a way to update the data files in a 2011+ manually, but it ain't easy...

      There's a 4GB SDHC module in the radio, but it doesn't have a normal SD card interface. A few weeks ago, I hacked into one of my RE2 radios by pulling the module out and soldering the test points to a Micro SD to USB adapter and could read and write to it. The Gracenote database is"

      Is it possible to upgrade Gracenote? [Archive] - Dodge Charger Forums

      Awesome, thanks!

      So there is hope for a manual fix if you want to get your hands dirty

      Messy, until we get a real update from Chrysler.

      1) Find a newer radio with a more recent Gracenote database
      2) Disassemble new radio and remove on board SD module
      3) Solder SD module test points to a SD to USB adapter and copy database to a computer.
      4) Desolder SD module and reassemble new radio.
      5) Repeat steps 1-3 on the older radio, but copying the newer database to the older SD module.
      6) Desolder SD module and reassemble old radio.
