All Geek to Me

Car Audio

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 3:43 pm

I first had a CD auto-changer fitted to a car about eight years ago. At the time, I thought this was the perfect way of ensuring a wide choice of music while driving. It was certainly better than having cassette tapes stuffed into every available nook and cranny of the car; especially as they tend to suffer from the cold and heat when left in a vehicle. Now, though, I have purchased an upgrade for my wife’s car that offers a far wider choice of music and scores a better geek rating.

We have an iPod unit wired into the back of the car stereo, with a lead into the glove compartment. You put the iPod into the glove compartment and then control the unit through the controls on the stereo and/or those on the steering wheel. You thus have access to several thousand songs.

If I am alone in the car, I can use my iPod with its “weird” music or downloaded UK Radio podcasts.

It is also an end to the problem of swapping out a CD in the auto-changer and putting the removed CD into the case of the new one; after a few months you have a CD collection in which the cases are organized alphabetically, but the contents are a random surprise.

Geek Score = 7/10
