Default Car Mode

I have a Zen V Plus 4GB and want to know if there's a car mode. I had my old Zen Xtra 120GB in my car with the Car Mode enabled so that the Zen would turn on and off when power was applied.

If there isn't a car mode, do any other Creative Products have them?

I am not aware of any Creative product within the last few years with Car Mode. I honestly wasn't even aware the Xtra had that.

I've heard about it. Car mode is supposed to turn the unit off and back on with the ignition so the battery in the Xtra won't continue to discharge. Nice feature, I don't know why it isn't in all of Creative's DAP's.

The Xtra had car mode (I had one, till the firmware update bricked it). The Vision M is sorely lacking this feature. What makes it worse is that it comes on when the car does, but then never turns off even when external power (the car) goes off. So your battery dies.
