    Hey, does any one recommend any solutions for ipod conectivity in your car? I like the look of the cd ipod docks you can buy but they can be pricey.

    Also, this is probably a stupid question but can you use any cd player in any car?

    Why don't you get a cheapish CD player with an aux socket then buy a wire that connects from the aux socket to your ipod. You may not even have to buy the wire as my dads ipod came with one.

    Yeah, I might try that. Is the sound quality better that way than through the FM transmitter? Or is it the same?

    The other question is, is there any way you radio can start automatically when the engines started like other cars? It's annoying turning it on all the time.

    Far, FAR better than an FM transmitter. Only marginally less quality than playing straight off a CD. If you listen to high bitrate songs on your iPod then I doubt you'd notice the difference unless you're an audiophile.

    The aux-in headunits are not as good as the USB units. Mine has both. The aux-in sounds like **** and you have no controls with the headunit.

    The USB plug will give you menu/library access through the headunit controls AND it charges the ipod. It also sounds better. USB is much better.

    What is your budget?
