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.”

“Really? Cool!

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.”

  1. In an older post about your Honda fit in 2008 you suggested you were getting 20-29 miles per gallon. I just wanted to suggest you try recording your fuel consumption at fueleconomy.gov. It’ll accurately calculate based on exact tank to tank fuel purchased and miles driven. My 2007 fit gets 32-38 miles per gallon and I’ve got a record of MPG going back to when I had 1500 miles on the car (when I started using fueleconomy.gov)
