iFilter - What MP3 player to get?

I have a 4th gen monochrome 20g ipod that I use about 5g of space on. I have about 120 gigs of music, but for some reason I find that I never at any time want to listen to more than 5g. That being said, I rarely use my ipod other than in my car as its just so annoying to carry. I would especially like something better suited to the gym.
My problem is feature creep. I think I would find the new shuffle too limiting without a LCD (I want to listen to song X now). I dont care for custom playlists, and often listen to entire albums.
I thought it would be neat to look at photos, and videos, but I am not sure if I *really* need that. Am I going to really watch youtube at the gym?
So meta--What mp3 player for a gymbound guy? FM transmitter for in my car would be neat, but not a requirement. I think I need a basic LCD and a decent UI, but maybe I dont. I absolutely dont want vendor lockin on the management app (ie, can only use Sony's app to make custom files like I had to with my minidisk). I dont consider ipod's to have vendor lockin (I use ephpod).
