Car audio options!
Hey there lounge go-ers, hoping this is the right place for this, if there is indeed a place for this topic!
I'm interested in what you guys are using to listen to music with in your vehicles. What works? What doesn't? Is it user friendly?
My 6 CD stacker in my car recently broke (and trapped my favourite CDs, gah!)
and so i figure it's time to move into the 21st century.
I currently do not have any ipods/pads/etc but do have a ton of mp3s on my computer so I was looking at getting a headunit capable of USB in the car, and then buying portable HD drive that will use a chord to link to the head unit - and my hope is that this works. and also hoping said chord will charge the portable HD drive, or is that asking too much?
I'm a little bit worried about if this will be user friendly in terms of sorting through hundreds of gigs of music just using the arrows on the headunit, since the portable drive doesn't have an interface.
this would roughly cost 220 for head unit, 90 for installation, 120 for 1 terabit portable HD so basically 400 bucks (and this is absolute max I can afford to blow on this...maybe more than I should be actually)
Anyone gone with this setup and able to give any feedback? or should I go a different avenue with my budget?
