    Default Easiest and cheapest way to play MP3's!

    Hello, just thought some may be interested with a simple device you can get to play MP3's via a usb memory stick. I purchased one recently from amazon for £7.99 incl' p&p. Just stick into your cig lighter, turn off RDS on stereo and tune to relevant station in my case 88.3 FM. And bingo, no more cd's in door pockets and glove boxes. I'm happy with mine, there's a bit of background hiss but hardly noticeable really

    Remarkable for the price. Nice one. But anywhere near the M25 is interference hell for FM modulators like that. That's why I have a Pure Highway DAB I can plug my MP3 player into.

    Does it have an earphone socket on it??

    If it does, then you could do the CDr2005 CD AUX input and eliminate the hiss and still retain RDS and TP functions.


    Sounds like a winner to me.

    In pic one I can see a 3.5mm jack. Is that earphone socket or a AUX Input to the transmitter?
