if your car CD player plays MP3's on CD can't you just burn off most of the stuff onto CD, then you don't have to worry about power and it getting nicked etc!!

My I-trip thing from Uk to France was brilliant.

It charged my iphone and sent the radio signal through to the Boxster radio briliantly. It also looks neat.

No worries there - recomended.


Heres a pic of it.

Yeh we did the same when we drove back from Spain a few years back (in convoy)

We could tune into a station and listen to Ipod controller DJ mixmaster choose the selection...

It was quite cool looking back lol.

Next best solution would be a wired FM modulator. It actually plugs inbetween the aerial and the aerial socket on your existing stereo. Plug the iPod in, tune the radio in. Job done.

Something like this:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Revo-Universal-Wired-FM-Modulator-Car-MP3-IPOD-DAB_W0QQitemZ300296736862QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_AudioVideoElectronics_PortableAudio_MP3PlayerCarKits?hash=item300296736862&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1683%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

Alternatively, whip the CD player and fit a cheap tape deck, along with a 3.5mm headphone plug - tape adaptor.

Both methods work with reasonable success. Ultimately depends on how you feel about sound quality!
