I have gotten spoiled by being able to copy music files to a USB flash drive and playing those songs with Amarok or MPlayer Portable. That sure is nice for the desktop.
I would like to do the same in my car rather than using CDs (650MB CDs at that --- a year 2003 CD player that does not always like 700 MB disks
While I start researching options for my car, I thought I'd pose the same question to folks using Linux-based systems: what hardware options are available to free software advocates who want to play music in their cars with USB flash drives? I'm not interested in proprietary devices such as the iPod, nor am I interested in driving with headphones
I accept that most, if not all, hardware options for cars probably only support the MP3 format. Yes, MP3 is a non-free file format but for my car, I can live with that. For now I just want options that allow flexibility beyond 650MB CDs and less storage room too.
As always, thanks for your thoughts and opinions.
