IPOD use

Hi

So I have dragged myself up to date and got every CD I own on my iPod, is it possible to plug it into my car or boat sound system or do I need to keep earphones in and griends out from now on?

Get yourself a wireless FM stereo transmitter - works excellent for me on boat and in car [NB: I don't think they are legal yet but apparently will be as long as they are CE Marked, unless anyone knows different!] - got mine from www.misco.co.uk Look for a battery powered one, not 12V like this

Belkin TuneCast II Mobile FM Transmitter

No idea about the car setup, but I definately know that an iPod Nano setup is possible on a RIB.

I have this waterproof case...

...although it appears to be available a bit cheaper cheaper here...
http://www.sailgb.com/p/ipod_nano_fu...terproof_case/

...with a setup similar to this...
http://www.marine-audio.com/Products...ut-Adapter.htm

As I am a girl and rubbish with most things requiring wiring or electricity, the nice Ribcraft boys sorted it out for me , but I'm sure you clever boys could do this yourselves...

Halfords will hardwire an Ipod connector in to your car so you can have it mounted next to your CD player. Its handy to use and gives a slightly better sound. It cost £99 fitted.

Alternatively the new Mini and Saabs have the connector built in at the factory.

As far as I know the Fm transmitters have become legal, but their quality varies hugely. Plus I've driven past some dudes, and picked up their drum 'n bass, which didnt go down well with my Englebert Humperdink, lord knows what they got on theirs ..........

I think our local Esso garage is selling the transmitters for about £7.50

It might have been BP though thinking about it (I fuel up twice a day at times so I forget),but it's worth a look at that price.

Well I am not sure if I fancy having those Halfords guys wire my boat up so I guess thetransmitter is the solution for me, thanks for the help.

Seeing as their is so many knowledgeable people here I have another question.. In my iTunes programe on my PC some of the Albums downloaded are in a number of folders, looks like the software is looking at artists rather than the album because a song which 'features' another singer will be in its own 'album' folder. This means that their are loads of folders with only one song and compilation albums have upto 12 folders. Can I tidy this up?
