A Big Bang for the buck – Car MP3 Player FM Transmitter with SD Slot and IR Remote (SD/MMC/USB Port/MP3) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Same thing sells as a MachSpeed on Tigerdirect for 30. Worked like a charm. Used an SDHC 4GB card without any problems. the LCD is small but very nice. remote works fine. Quality is pretty good, obviously depends on your mp3 bitrate.
Cons:
-Starts from the beginning of a track on restart.
-Cannot forward within a track. skips to the next track. will try from remote to see if that works.
-Does not remember what track/where it stopped.
Other:
Restarts from the first track. That's because my honda switches off the outlet. In cars that do not power off the outlet, this will play on and on. you'll need to pause when you turn off the engine. would have been a good idea to have a LiIon battery inside to remember the settings. If that happens, this is much better than lugging an ipod (Read:Expensive BRICK) in your car.
Bottomline:
13 bucks well spent.
