Hmmm... No playlists, eh? That might not be a good thing... I don't use the Artist and Album features, so I can't really say how well they work... I do use tons of Playlists, though, and have most of them labeled with AT&T voice tags (do a search-- it's a cool little trick that makes using the DICE with a C33 much easier) so it's really pretty convenient. Again, this iPod lives in the car-- I don't use it anywhere else, so I can keep lots of weird and random playlists on there that I wouldn't bother to put on my regular iPod.

Oh man...the iTrip sucks. I have one for emergencies, but the sound quality is flat out terrible. Do yourself a favor and at least get a cassette adaptor. Back to the 90's you go.




Sad to say, but iTrip unter alles... Every time someone tells me how "Oh yeah, FM modulators are WAY better than they were even a couple years ago", I just nod politely and smile... A buddy of mine that *used* to be the biggest audiophile I knew (first guy I knew with a home CD player, first guy to have a detachable face head unit) was showing me his FM modulated XM radio about a year ago... I should have smothered him with a pillow, busted out the window of his truck and run away.

They were never cheap. I paid $415 in 2006 for a mint one that still functions perfectly.

Very Funny! The audio quality people find good is going lower every day.

Its much easier to use than fumbling through CD's and a big plus is I have almost my entire library at my finger tips.
My sunglasses holder is about to get filled with VDO gauges (oil temp, oil pressure and voltmeter). Alternate location?

Smile Re: Anywhere to get a CD43 anymore?

Hi. I did some research into the BMW/Rover issue. Apparently, BMW owned Rover for a while. The Blaupunkt CD43 was installed in BMWs and Rovers. Some of the currently available CD43 units have the Rover logo; some don't. The M badge is just to cover it. It's not a fake. It is a Blaupunkt OEM.
I am considering buying one on ebay. My night display on my CD43 in my 2000 Z3 is out; I don't want to mess with soldering to repair it.

What do these things go for now-a-days? I have the OE one.. and I could be sold to grab something else.
