    car CD/mp3 question

    Are there any units that that player in a car, has a "lead in" where you can plug in a two way headphone jack one end into the player and the other into an ipod to access the cars speaker through the player and play the songs from the ipod.

    That would be sweet if anyone could suggest a model that accomplishes this.

    I have never seen anything like that but Alpine has a radio that will control an Ipod and so does Pioneer. A few compaines make products that allow some factory radios to control Ipods. I have a Perpherial Electronics piece in my truck that lets me control my Ipod through the XM port.

    What's the point?

    And you could have a Y-splitter to run audio from the MP3 player to both headphones and to the Aux-In on a headunit.
    So you could listen to the same thing on both headphones and the car stereo....

    But WHY?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    DarquePervert, I think you misunderstood...or I did.

    My take on this is that you want a HU with aux in on the front via a stereo jack socket...
