I'm looking to find out what are the connections on the back of the USB hub that goes into your center console it has three connection points but the truck only gives out two cables. I had recently put Android auto and apple carplay in my truck but I realized once getting the new USB hub that there was only one USB connection and one auxiliary port. As I put a USB flash drive in there to listen to music I realize I could not use the Android auto or the Apple carplay. So what I did is I bought a wireless adapter to do the Apple carplay and Android auto so that way I can take away the cable but that still didn't solve the problem as it made it wireless but it needed a USB connection to work. But I noticed on the back of the USB there is one port left exposed so I'm wondering if that able to take another USB cable if so would it be able to read a USB flash drive and I can leave my USB wireless adapter in the other port.

It needs to be a compatible USB hub for AA and CP.

Sounds like you need the USB media hub (68283703AA) from a Chrysler 200 as it will work with the AA/CP radio and it has dual USB ports on the front.
