It plays my tunes!
When he first got me the car, Alpha Geek also got me a little gizmo that plugs my iPod nano into a jack below the cigarette lighter—this jack connects the iPod directly to the sound system, so I can play music directly from the nano to my car’s speakers.
But wait, there’s more!
Last week I poked my husband while he was working on his computer. (I’m demanding that way.)
“Can I borrow three blank CDs?” I asked.
He obligingly handed me three blank discs. “Why do you need three of them?”
“I want to copy my Everclear albums to discs that I can keep in the car.”*
“You don’t need three discs to do that—the Fit recognizes the mp3 format, just burn them to mp3’s and copy them all onto one disc.”
I don’t know if all new cars have this feature, but mine does, and I sure do like it. Three albums, one disc!
*Later he asked me why I didn’t just put my Everclear albums on my iPod. I’ve got an older-model nano, and it holds 2 GB. I’ve already had to pare down my playlist to make it fit. He said maybe I need a newer iPod. I said I didn’t think anyone could really classify an iPod as a “need.”
