Is this correct? In other words, if I just use a charging USB cable, I can still operate the player while its charging?
No, on my tests if the usb connection provides charge current, you cannot play.
If you have a usb input available, I still maintain it's easier to use a usb stick, no charging problems. If you are fortunate enough to have a car radio with built in usb, it's much easier to make adjustments for track/album etc. This holds true to a lesser extent if using one of those fm transmitters which in my case works well.
