Anyone gone thru all the options for an aftermarket iPod player for the car/truck? What did ya find out. Some of the bluetooth options seem to lack quality sound.

There are a few that run into an input like a USB or something into the back of the head unit. I dont know what company they are, but they do sound great with the hard connection instead of broadcasting their own signal. Plus they keep it charged. I have a cheapo Music Gear one my ex girlfriend gave me with a remote that actually works pretty well. Ill see if I can find a model number.

I have a sterio with Ipod ports in 3 of my vehicles and they all have different ports. 1 is a usb port that allows the ipod to charge and the sterio to control the function of the Ipod. Another utilizes the input ports in the back of the sterio via A/V cables and the AUX function of the sterio but you can't charge or control the Ipod using this method. The third uses an AUX port on the front of the sterio and is basically the same as the input ports. All three sterios are Sony XPLOD models and are awsome in every respect. Hope this helps BC Ron

I'm leaning towards the USB w/ the port in the front. I like that it charges the unit while playing it.Got the new system installed today, what a nice enhancement for those long drives. Went with the front load USB. Ready for my drive to UT now.Thanks guys.
