I have a kenwood excelon 996 and I am able to play FLAC files that are on my Samsung Galaxy S3 over blue tooth to the kenwood unit through the car stereo speakers.

What I want is a head unit that will read flac files right off the USB thumb drive right into the head unit.

I have seen some threads through google searching where people have been trying to do this since 2005. The last thread I saw on google, some one had tried this back in 2009.

Does anyone have any information on FLAC support on any current car audio products other than the "psudeo" way I am doing it now?

Currently I am using a Rockboxed Sansa Fuze. It works fine, as long as I don't want to change folders while I'm driving. I would like to do better than a line in to my head unit.

For anyone with money to burn, I discovered JVC makes some very expensive full featured head units with navigation, which play FLAC: KW-NT310, KW-NT510, and KW-NT810. Cheapest one is around $900. I don't want it that bad.
