Yes and Yes.
If you look at my picture again, you will see that I have a SanDisk mini-USB flash drive plugged into the bottom left corner of the HU. That's where all of my MP3 files are stored.
If I was determined to use an iPod/MP3 player to provide my music, I would have bought the higher model of Pioneer HU in the same family (4400BH, I believe) that provides a rear USB port rather than the front USB port, and I would have run a USB cable into the glove compartment or something so that I could hide the MP3 player in there. But I like having my MP3 files on the mini USB, which is low-profile enough that its appearance doesn't bother me.
I definitely wouldn't want a cable hanging out of the front of my HU, though. I took the time to hard-wire my GPS and radar detector, so the last thing I would want is a cable hanging out of my HU.
As for losing the AUX connector, I don't care because I never use it. USB is all I need.
