It's time .............

Post by ayjay »

........to educate a dinosaur. :oops:

I've got my new wheels now, it has a radio, with Bluetooth connectivity and a USB slot on the front.

I rarely listen to the radio as I prefer my own choice of music.

I've got used to having a CD player in the car but no longer have that.

The simplest option I suppose is to swap out the radio for a CD player, but what else could I do?

I have a feeling it might involve an mp3 player - but I refer you back to the first line of this post! :mrgreen:

ive got a nissan qashqai. its got a cd player. but i dunno where all my cd's are....

i activated apple music. now i just look up whatever album i want to have on and play it. or whatever song i think of or set playlists up.

mind its a tenner a month like. but if ya listening to albums you dont already own i guess its not so bad. its only a couplea quid a week.

in my old car i had a load of cd's in the multi changer thing and the damn thing had to cycle through them every single time i started the car up

I have an ipod touch, I just plug it into the audio input socket. My OH I can conenct it via bluetooth

The thing is CD's really are old hat. My ipod touch can hold the equivalent of sh*t loads of cds (don't know how many) so rather than having to find a CD you can select a track, AND / or you can make play lists. In short you can "pinch" tracks from any album or other play list you have to make a new play list. I am still not 100% with what it can do, but trust me its better and cheaper than installing a cd player. I would never go back to cds.

Oh, the other thing you can get are "pod casts" Its what talk / speech you hear on the radio, edited so it has no ads I get Mystery Hour, from LBC and they are free.

Ipod touch

CD player

Then you have installation on top.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.


Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

You've lost me already.

Does that involve the use of the smart-phone which I don't have?

Not sure I have an audio input socket.

Can I get my existing CDs onto an iPod?

I've just been reading the destructions again which has given me an idea - can I just put my music onto a USB stick somehow?

No, just the radio.

Even I know that cassettes are old hat - although my Berlingo has a cassette player: but it's old - like 2001.
