Looking for suggestions - FF control...
I am trying to find either a commercial complete car MP3 playing system, or to build one. The one main criteria I have for a unit is that I want to have easy access to a remote control that can handle true fast forward (FF) operation.
Here's the reason - I stream a lot of 2-3 hour long radio programs on my computer, and want to hear them in my car. They have commercials and I want to be able to easily skip the commercials.
Imagine the frustration (not to mention the danger) of driving on a long trip, getting 2 hours through a good 3 hour long talk radio show, going to hit the FF button to get past some commercials, only to have the FF button also double as the 'Next Track' button, and instead of FF'ing through the track, it skips entirely to the next one because I didn't press the button properly, or something like that. Then I have to find my way back to the previous track, but it is reset back to the start again.
Well you get the general idea. So I'm looking to procure a unit that can handle true FF and without difficult for the driver. Not one that has a FF that you have to hold down to get FF operation, as it does on my iPod.
So does anyone have any suggestions at all for this? I'm getting desperate!
