Looking for a mp3 player and car kit combo.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey folks

My dads car does not have a MP3 player so i would like to buy him one and get a car kit.

Ipods are expensive and he would never use it as it should so i am looking at the cheapest solution.

He will always use this setup on his car.

Could anyone give me an ideas about a good value combo?

Thank you.

Scandisk sunsa clip+ or zip. I just got to fiddle with them at a local store, both are very nice for cheap MP3 player. They where highly recommended on portable device thread I use. How did you want to connect said MP3 player to the car? dose his car radio have a line in jack?

Thank you for the response and +rep

I found the one you are talking about.

http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Sansa-Clip-Player-Black/dp/B002MAPS6W/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1331558280&sr=8-19

this one right?

seems just right. YOu can also see the artist name which is important. This seems like a good buy for his needs.

Unfortunately no line in jack.

The music system in his var only has radio and cd player in it. THats all.

Edit : My father is actually using my car. I am in the market for a new car (replacing my wifes)

This is the stock Cd player in the Alfa Romeo 159.

Yep, thats the one, it sounded great. You can also load Rockbox on it. I also liked the mico SD card reader on it. I know it cost's as much as the player, but you limited on options with no line in jack, your only option is an FM transmitter. It will plug into the MP3 players headphone jack and give a FM radio signal allowing you to hear the MP3 player over the radio. If you get one like this its perfect. That one you can select what channel it transmits too, handy feature. It also draws power from the car 12v plug. The nifty part about it is the 12v power plug for the FM transmitter also has a USB plug in the back. This rocks because you can use the cord that is give with the Clip+ and power both of them from the same plug. No battery to worry about with the Transmitter and if the MP3 player dies you can plug it in and keep going. Best of luck
