USB in glovebox

What option has the USB input in the glovebox?
Got my f30 a week ago and each evening I've been sitting in the garage, manual in hand and trying everything out. My 328 (no line) has no USB input for uploads.
Thanks
Stan

USB Glove box input

Sorry. Guess I wasn't clear with my question. My f30 has a plastic plug where the USB input is supposed to (according to the manual) in the glove box. I popped out the plug and thee is a square hole. No USB input.
Is the USB input only present with a specific option? Which one?
Thanks
Stan

You probably already know this but you can use the USB port in your center console with a jump drive and listen to your music off of it.

The one in the glovebox does that too? I thought it was for the profiles only and that the one in the center console was for the music

E90Fleet is right. You upload music to the hard drive using the USB in the glove box, even though you play music over the car speakers from an external device using the USB in the centre console.

Just learned this existed. I was annoyed that I had to rip cds to get onto my HD. So much easier.

I upgraded the software using the USB in the arm rest. There is no USB in the glove box. (I have the new navi).
