    Why would iTunes be defaulting to .WAV? Are you using iTunes on Windows? Performance for iTunes on Windows is pretty terrible IMHO but it has the ability to convert between file types natively. You should be able to convert what you have downloaded in your library to .mp3, mpeg-4 or .m4a. Conversely, Windows Media player has the same conversion features built in so you could use that as well to convert and burn mp3 CDs (if you are indeed on Windows).
    My AUX is on the max setting for both using the phone and using cd's. I run a Macbook Pro 2011 early edition. For some reason when I buy new songs from iTunes and because of the format they are in, they say "error" when I go to burn them to a CD in Mp3. I have been trying to find a decent converter to Mp3 and that hasn't really panned out. Most of the songs I have on my computer are already converted to Mp3 from long ago doing it, never thinking I'd have to use the format again. I think that iTunes use to convert songs if you are doing an Mp3 CD but I'm not 100% certain. Since that doing a .Wav format CD is simple and I know I won't have compatibility issues with the OEM radio or the songs, I have just been doing that. I know for long trips doing .Wav CDS are a pain since that there is hardly any songs on it compared to a Mp3 Cd.

    If it helps, I've had zero issues with MP3 CDs so far in my Micra by just burning my library to data CD, each one I've burnt has worked flawlessly with titles and grouping by album. Although, it is interesting seeing what happens from vehicle to vehicle with the same MP3 CD. Our other vehicle orders and displays them differently.

    Oh snap! I totally forgot about Data CD can be used with Mp3's and some players will use them. Thanks so much for brining that up. With the way that the deck is for Nissan it's so hard to want to take it out and put in an aftermarket being on a month and half old.

    So I did a Data CD through iTunes with 100 songs and the deck only shows 40 and some are in order of the cd and close to the end of the 40 it bounces around(40, 67, 89 on the iTunes list.

    I find it's mostly a mixed bag as to how your deck will read them. If you really want to get into it and have it display correctly you'll have to standardize on a media format and edit the metadata on each track by hand from a local source. Unfortunately, I don't have any tips on how to easily do this on OSX with iTunes.
