mp3 player in car

I want to get an iPod or Dell Jukebox to play in the car, so my CDs aren't rattling all over.

Options seem to include a cassette adaptor (I don't have a cassette player) or an FM transmitter. I haven't heard great things about these transmitters...static etc.

Are there any other options? (I do have a CD player in the car.)

Do you think a car audio place could hardwire a jack or something?

Thanks,

Cd

If your car had an option for a cd changer, there is some type of factory din-type input thingy. What make/model/year car do you have? Some aftermarket manufacturers have adapters that will allow you to plug in as an aux in. Barring that, mp3-cd aftermarket decks are not expensive anymore.

It's a '04 Chevy Venture (mini-van - quite the chick magnet!)

What does "din-type" mean? I don't really want a deck...I want a portable that I can also use in the car.

dubstar, what does "Head unit with a usb or firewire" mean?

Sorry for my naivete,

David

You could change out the cd player for one that will play mp3 cd's. That will cut the number of cd's rolling around big time. RIP all your favorites to a couple of cd's.

If you got the fancy chevy stereo, you should have had the option to get the changer also. That means that there is a plug on the back of your stereo that is proabably round and has about 15 conductors. This is to control the changer and carry audio from the changer. There should be an adapter available that will allow you to just use the audio part as two RCA jacks/

what he said.


and about the USB and Firewire ports on the radio deck.. its just a way to hookup 2 devices for exchange of files...

the iPod should have some assessories that let it connect through RCA.. and it should come with a car stand... just like in the VW Beatles.
