    Newbie MP3 questions

    Hello:
    I am brand new here. I have a 2004 Ford F150 with a CD player. I know very little about MP3 players and am hoping that someone here can assist me. I would like to purchase an MP3 player that I can use in my truck. Is this possible? I do not know if it matters, but there is a "AUX" button on the face of my truck stereo. I do not see any jacks where I would be able to plug an MP3 player into. If this is possible, how will sound quality be? Again, I am very new to this and have very little knowledge so all of your detailed help is much appreciated. Thanks again.

    I would like to be able to download songs onto the MP3 player and listen to them going and coming from work. Also, I would like to be able to have the capability to listen to these downloaded songs on headphones while doing other things outside of my vehicle.

    Just buy an mp3 player, and hopefully it will come with a A/V out jack and cable. Pop your head unit out and there should be a red and black AUX in cables. Plug your A/V out cable into this and find a convenient place to wire it through so you can plug your mp3 player into it when you position the head unit back in. Then just plug your mp3 player up when you want and switch to AUX mode.

    Even if it doesn't come with such a cable, theyr'e pretty easy to latch onto....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    yeah, I'm sure they are.

    But don't buy one from Creative. I bought a $400 Zen Personal Media Center and the hard drive went bad with it sitting on my desk, doing nothing. I would wait for a bigger version of the ipod nano. You know they'll expand the hard drive. And those things are so freakin awesome!

    My first setup of mp3s was in my jeep grand cherokee running mp3s on my pocket pc with one of those cassette tape adapters plugged into the phone jack Excellent sound quality for the $6.00 I paid for it.
