I'm looking for some kind of mp3 player/ipod etc, that i can put all my cd's on and then plug in via usb into cigarette lighter and play it through my vehicles headunit. I probably wouldn't be using itunes at all, I still buy mostly all physical copies, I just want to do this to avoid carrying so many cd's around. I would like something that can hold ALOT of music, but I don't need it to have video or anything else. I wasn't sure if i should go Ipod, since i don't use itunes.
Does your headunit have an AUX in? (1/8" jack) or does it support USB natively?
I have an iPod in my car (nano, maybe?) I've had it in there for about 4 years, never take it out, just leave it in the center console even when it's -10* out here in the dead of winter and have never once had a problem with it. The only downside is - you do have to sync it with iTunes.
