So how do you delete all the music on the hard drive if you don't have the NAV option?? I have the Bose system and a 40 gig hard drive, but no NAV.
I've tried unsuccessfully 4 times to transfer the music from my iPhone to the drive. I moved all the iTunes music to a USB stick and took the time to organize everything, make sure all the artist names, album names, song titles are organized properly etc. I only have about 7 gig worth of music. I start the transfer and after about 45 min, it's less than half done. I stopped the car because I reached my destination and assumed when I got back in, I could resume the transfer. No such luck!!! It started all over again!! I didn't know it till it had started. I tried this a few more times and never had the time to keep the car running long enough to get through the whole thing.
Now what I have is 4 copies of all the songs that transferred!!! It's a real mess. So I want to blank it all and start again. There has to be a way of deleting everything on a non NAV unit. Anybody able to help??
Once I get it cleared, my plan is to only put about 1 or 2 gig worth of songs on the USB stick, transfer those complete. Then erase the stick, put the next 1 or two gig on etc. Hopefully I can get it all on there in steps like this. I just can't leave my car running for 4 hrs to do it all at one time!! Unless anyone has a better way to get this much on there, seems I have no choice.

Re: Hard drive clearing with no NAV??
Apologies dlpuette, but I think there's very little info here /among forum members regarding special/unpublished command functions for the "U2S" 40GB HDD (non-Nav) radio unit that's installed in your '13 Coupe. I've checked and there's nothing of note in the CTS Service Manual. Unfortunately I think the best source of information for the system is in your CTS owner's manual.
As info, I have owned three 2nd Gen CTS's - a 2008, a 2009 and a 2011 (current car). All three vehicles have been equipped with the "UAV" Nav/Infotainment radio system, which I know quite a lot about. I haven't a clue about the radio unit in your car though!
It is in your owner's manual and I have the same system. I don't have the manual in front of me, but if I recall, when the HDD is used and you hit config button, it gives an option. I know I've loaded music recently, and somewhere along the way, there was an option to erase the HDD. It's there just look.
