Right so i just been to maplins and covered my options which were a can of worms to say the least .
The cheapest option was an adapter that plugs into the cigarett lighter which when tuned into a radio channel ( that has been manualy set to an available none used frequencey )picks up any ipod or MP3 playing device and hey presto i thought £12.99 that will do for me .
The draw backs are
1 you lose everything when your radio loses its signal (only in the lakes or shap where i live so i could still live with that )
2 MP3 players use an enormous amount of batteries and i wonder how long it would take to match a new mp3 playing set with the cost of feeding an mp3 player with batteries .
( could i power the mp3 player through the car as it works when plugged into laptop without a battery in it )
3 to power the mp3 player through the car it would have to be through the ciggarett lighter ( the one that the adapter is plugged into to recieve the mp3 through the radio )
So i would need a furthur adapter to convert the ciggarett lighter into a dual socket .
NOW I WOULD HAVE AN UNTIDY AND UNSIGHTLY TURRET STICKING OUT MY SIGGARETT LIGHTER AND SPENT NOT FAR SHORT OF A NEW RADIO TO DO IT .
i feel like SMEAGLE arguing with his second head argharghargha
There is still hope that a suggestion of a duel fm transmitter could be the answere which would fit to the rear of the radio ariel socket and rout to the glove box ............but i still have to power the mp3 and like i say they eat batteries for fun .
