    Two weeks ago I installed a new car stereo... my fourth system purchased from Crutchfield.com on as mabny vehicles.

    I am LOVING how modern tech works in this field... my first car had an 8-track player :eek: Next came the cassette. I never bought a car CD player until 2004 :eek: I bought another in 2005 for my second vehicle.

    Since moving to the islands, I put off bothering with car stereo until I moved away from the heat and dust of Kihei. This time, I bought a cheap Clarion unit from the scratch-and-dent dept. of Crutchfield for $84. Trust me, this is not a good place for owning expensive electronics.

    It's amazing.

    24 radio channel presets, CD player, AUX input on the face, USB thumb drive spot. So for a measly $84 I can carry and play my entire music collection via a $20 USB thumb drive, or plug my smartphone right into it and use either the mp3 player or hands-free phoning.

    It just keeps getting better all the time.. I can't follow or keep up with all the advances as they're made, but I would have LOVED to have this in 2004, and I was pleasantly surprised to see it's availability now. What's next?

    USB thumbdrive equiped CD player, shweet! I haven't bought anything new car stereo related in quite awhile, but I will be soon. I have to restrain myself though as I've spent too much mullah on that stuff in the past :whoop:
