Any notions on how to properly configure them? I know a fair amount about computers, but Iím not good with sorting out music files and uploading them onto various drives. I have Amazon Music on my phone, it uploads onto an Amazon music player on all my devices so I can listen on anything I own, but I tried once to upload music onto the Garmin IV and couldnít figure it out. Iíve avoided trying on my Garmin V and read it wasnít necessary anymore on the V. Any advice or link would be appreciated, Iíve looked everywhere with no luck.

I am not familiar with Amazon Music, but to cut to the chase, if you have access to MP3 files, then you have a very good chance that they are already properly "configured". You can copy the files onto a thumb drive, and arrange them into whatever folders and even subfolders that might catch your fancy, and the RT's radio will find them. To be clear though, this applies to the wetheads RT and NOT to the camhead RT, because the latter's radio have different requirement for MP3 files.
My MP3s are "ripped" from audio CD, DVD, and even vinyl records, and so how well the files are "configured" was based on what software I used to make those MP3s. To explain a little about MP3 files, the files are structured such that there is a data section within each file, called ID3. This data section is populated with data having to do with the file, such ad artist, album name, song name, track number, genre......and so on. If your MP3, for whatever reasons, have limited data in the ID3 section, or contains blanks, then you will need a software to edit or create the data. I use a program called mp3tag. You can Google to find the program. It's free. Why is this important? The our radio's MP3 player reads the ID3 data from all the MP3 that you have on the connected thumb drive, and use the data to organize the music and give you the multitudes of options in how you might want to listen to your music!
I'll stop here, but if you have more questions, go ahead and ask!
