I drive an '09 Nissan Versa hatchback (base model). I'm sick of burning CD's and listening to the same songs, listening to songs from my phone echoed by the cup holder, and there's far too much feedback with an FM transmitter for my iPod. What I am looking to do is simply buy a stock Nissan Versa stereo with an auxiliary plug-in. Is/are there any additional components I would need aside from the new stock stereo itself? I plan on recruiting a technologically savvy friend who can install it for me.
And in case anyone is curious, I'd like to stick with a stock stereo as I'd intend to leave it in even when selling or trading in.

I used to have an iPhone. You could listen to music with it. You could plug it into my basic USB car stereo and it would play music. I now have a Google Nexus 4. It will play for about 30 minutes, and then stop. If I'm lucky, it might deign to play a few songs in the car. I must be doing something wrong, right? [more inside]

Can I use an iPod dock extender cable to get audio from my 4th generation iPod touch to an FM transmitter with a male dock connection meant for the iPod mini? If not, what are my options for inexpensive FM transmission from my Touch? [more inside]

Looking for options to replace my dying car radio/cd player and the separate satellite radio unit that plays thru the radio. Would like as few pieces to install as possible, hopefully something that's all in one and preferably $250 or under. Any recommendations? [more inside]

I need an easy way to listen to any of my 55GB of music in my car. I have a Ford Expedition from the late '90s, with a CD player and cassette player. There is no input for a 3.5mm jack. Would it be best to buy a high-capacity mp3 player and then use some sort of adapter to connect it to my car's sound system? [more inside]

A friend and I are driving halfway through Sweden to pick up an art exhibition. We're in a big rental van, and realised to our horror that the CD-player doesn't work, or
might need activation. Help please! [more inside]

I want to get a decent stereo system in my car (an Isuzu Rodeo). Nothing too fancy, but decent. I got to thinking: could I just stick the iPod Hi-Fi
in my back seat? How would that sound? Any ideas on positioning, or mounting? Also, is this the lamest idea ever?

The factory-installed stereo in my car has stopped playing CDs, and my commute is fairly long, so this is essentially unacceptable. I've looked into getting it repaired, but the whole stereo'll have to be sent away for weeks, and it'll end up costing a bunch. But I've yet to find an add-on in-dash stereo for $200 or less that isn't terribly ugly. [more inside]

My car CD player (a Sony unit, probably about 6 years old) pretty much stutters/skips every CD I put in it, usually 5-10 minutes into the disk. Should I replace it, or try those lens cleaner thingies? Also, if I go to replace it, what's the metric in CD players' model specs that will tell me how well the lens will handle light scratches and/or burned CDs? I guess I could just get a really expensive one, but the only feature I really care about is that it doesn't skip.

I just bought a new car stereo that plays MP3/WMA cds. My question: which format is better in the car?
