    Question Car MP3 Costs

    Now for a little different question, let us assume there is a high quality near OEM grade MP3/CD car radio with the following functions:
    Drop-in replacement for many original equipment audio systems; Automatically detects MP3 CD-ROMs;Over 10 hours of music on one CD; Up to 255 MP3 songs in 255 user defined directories; Supports bit rates of 32kbps-320kbps, including variable bit rate (VBR); Multi-session capable; MACH TracTM allows quick access to any song on the MP3 CD; Supports multi-layer directory structure; Electronic tuning with 6 AM/12 FM station memory; Digital Clock; CD music play; CD changer compatible;Scan and Seek MP3; Shuffle MP3; Repeat MP3; Supports multi-layer directory structure; plays discs in either flat file or directory mode;
    Advanced features included Scan/Seek Directory, Repeat Directory, and Shuffle Directory; and more.

    Given this, how much would you pay for an in-dash MP3 CD like this?

    Well to me the building of my player is the best part. Where is the fun in buying a pre-made unit? I think its more of challenge to build, find obsticles, overcome these, and triumph building your own, CUSTOMISED player, you can bet that no one else will have an isntallation the same as yours.

    You may have different views, but thats my thoughts

    Well mp3designer seems to have a problem understanding that most of us if not all our building our own unit for the fun of doing it. Oh well it also looks like he went with the AM/FM radio when he stated that is sucked and was a useless feature when you could listen to MP3 on random mode to get the same thing without commercials. Oh well.

    Having a radio in the car isn't a bad idea. Traffic and weather reports and whatnot don't come in mp3 format.
