40GB here! woooooooot!stang said:I've heard this too. The input jack should allow for iPod, Dell DJ and all the other MP3 players to play in your car. The advantage of the MP3 player over MP3 CD's is that you have about 800mb on a CD vs 5gb of space on most MP3 players. It will be great for long trips! :thumbs:
MP3's on CD = about 150 songssimmonsmb said:Pretty sure it comes with an input for an iPod so I would assume that you could use any type of MP3 player with it, you would just need a cord with two male ends on it to go from the player to the stereo. If you get the next radio up it comes with a MP3 capable CD player so you can just burn your MP3s to CD and play them that way. That's what I plan on doing.
Yep ... it also says that in the trifold brochure posted in another thread, along with some other good information. Here's a link for those that may have missed it before: http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=1064brentil said:Accoridng to the fastlane blog all the radios have what is called an AUX input.
See my problem is I'd rather buy CD-R's at a dime a dozen then give Apple a single penny.Moobs said:MP3's on CD = about 150 songs

i have a high end kenwood deck in my car now that play MP3 CD's and since i got my iPod, the face has never come down for a CD to be inserted. I don't have any CD's to worry about changing out or leaving behind anywhere b/c all my music is now on my iPod. all in one place and it's so much better that way.
Buy Samsung! j/k Plus it's also easier (at least for me) to navigate songs and volume on a deck rather than an mp3 player.brentil said:
god_of_gamblers makes a good point when he says to buy samsung. if in fact it is apple that you have a problem with, then i highly recommend a different branded product. if all you want is a plain music player, then there is not much difference from one product to the next and other brands are cheaper. i got mine for a really good deal and i like the accessories that are available for the ipods. i have a car charger, FM transmiter, and case for my ipod and it was all very easy to find. there are so many more accessories available that i'm looking into also. and other brands will have these accessories, but they may not be as easy to find... with the exception of the FM transmiter as most of them are the same. but, mine is built into the car charger and is powered through the cig lighter so i'm not changing batteries out at all. samsung makes a great alternative product, but creative's products are gaining in popularity and i think are the highest rated by consumer reports (even over apple's ipods). you can't even imagine how much easier it makes things. things you don't even think about like the process of burning CD's is gone. you plug your MP3 player into the comp and it auto syncs with any new music you've downloaded and you are off again in less than a minute. it's so easy. but no one ever knows until they actually get one. i didn't even have a clue how much i would use it. but as more of my friends get them, they ask why i didn't tell them about them earlier.brentil said:
