I have been shopping around for a car audio MP3 solution; something aside from connecting a portable player. I don’t like connecting a portable MP3 player in the car because it is just a flat out pain and it is not a clean solution. Plus the Florida sun has already cooked a few LCD screens mounted to my front dash.
We have seen USB head units in the past but they been off brands that have been difficult to purchase. However, Clarion, known for their higher end car audio components, now makes one that supports MP3 and WMA via burned CDs or USB input. MSRP is $260 on Clarion’s website but can be found at Crutchfield for $160.
