Not bad MeMe if that's is what you want to do.
Last one I had on was a JVC with a tape not waterproof and lasted for 2 years. Hope this one will last 5 or 6 or even for ever

You can get a waterproof housing for the mini Ipod, so you should be able to mount it on the consul.

Ipods are way overpriced and have probs in that they will only playback "proper" mp3s - what you want is a NORMAL MP3 player at about 50 with a big memory card. The Ipod starts at about 180 - bloody mad price and will only play back what Apple let you!!!!

Hi Harry,
I have got an ipod and use an FM transimtter. It means you only need a stereo with a radio so no skipping cd to worry about. Also means you have your entire music collection with you and works in the car as well! You can then keep the ipod or simlar in your pocket out of harms way.

They are available on ebay, but technically illegal in UK...

As for ipods only playing songs that Apple let you - you can put your entire CD collection on there so I think this is incorrect.

Hope this helps

Yes sorry didn't make myself clear - it's not the IPOD itself but the Itunes mp3s that are encrypted to stop you playing them back on other things - of course they can be hacked but still a pain!!!!

Like the idea of using the FM transmitter - does away with wires.

The IPOD itself isn't bad but again overpriced for what it is!

This sounds the way to go for me....

does anyone know any good places to get a Waterproof/marine FM radio (with tape if need be).I have had a dig around but can only find one type (white clarion 200.00). UK sites would be best if anyone would be so kind.

cheers

Colin one good waterproof (ACTUALLY WATERPROOF) radio/cassette is Standard Horison MST70 http://www.marinewholesales.com/en/s...dard%20Horizon

and Jensen http://www.onlinemarine.com/cgi-loca...c21+1103336273
or you can search the long list here http://www.onlinemarine.com/cgi-loca....htm?E+scstore

I'm affraid there are NOT ANY UK distributors that come close to any of these prices

You can find these things in the US for very little money and if you add the transport @ $60 by USPS with a tracking number (it takes 3 days to get to the UK) they cost less than half of what you will get anywhere in the UK and a bit less than what you get in other EU states.
