Does anyone know if there's some kind of device I can hook up to my factory CD player in my truck to play MP3's? Kind of like when you could put a cassette in the cassette player using a portable CD player to play CD's.

Yeah I know somebody makes something like that. I can't think of the name for shit! It works off your radio stations.

You need a wireless FM transmitter, IROCK makes some website .. it sends your mp3 on an fm station you select and you tune your radio to that station

but I'd still need to buy a MP3 player and use that device to hook up the adapter? Is there anything that is a player that will hook up instead of having to purchase 2 seperate items?

I don't know of an all in one solution, I use a cassette adapter on mine since I have cassette. Next head unit I buy I want it to have an auxillary input. There might be some device you can hook in line with your factory antennae ... I just don't see there being any one piece solution.

Wonder if the Factory radio has the AUX option and maybe PAC makes something for this? If so you could use like an I-pod to hook into the AUX unit. I had no luck with the I-pod and using the AUX input.

Also wonder if the I-pod or some other portable MP3 player has the option to use a cassette?

If you currently have a cassette deck you could possibly use something like this. I've never heard one, but found it when I was looking into HUs a while back.

If you have a cdplayer you will pretty much have to go with 2 products. Radio shack use to have the fm transmitters haven't checked lately they are around $20 i think (got one for a friend a year ago)

good luck

There is a device for your factory radio that plugs into where the slave cd/cassette unit from the center console plugs into the head unit. It gives the factory radio a rca input. I believe it is made by peripheral. There is also a "Y" adapter for this module so that you don't lose the factory slave unit.

I was at Wal-Mart tonight and they had a FM Transmitter by Belkin for $19 and some change

I had to go because my current MP3 player bit the dust, it comes on but won't play .. I picked up a Memorex MP3 player, has 128 megs internal (my old one has 64) and will still use my 128 Meg MMC card. So far I like it, it even sounds better and louder in my truck!
