'[OT] MP3 player for cars'

A couple of weeks ago some of us were talking about MP3 players for our
cars etc using computers and some people had indicated that they were
using pics connected to the serial or parallel port to control the
software . My question is when you have alot of albums on your hard
drive, how do you select between the albums (or playlists) using just
the buttons?
Regards
Stuart

Memorize them.

Some people put LCDs in the car, usually 20x4, which you could use to
scroll through a list.

When and if I ever do something like this, I'll probably have only about
ten shuffled playlists according to category and mood (e.g. Classical,
Movie, Disney, Soft Rock, Humorous, Religous, etc)  A singe song might
end up in more than one playlist.

Then again, I'm also thinking about putting a monochrome vga LCD on my
visor for the display, which would offer more choice.

Do a HUD with bright LEDs instead.

There is at least one manufacturer for commercial car MP3 players. They have
a model with 4Gb of memory (I suppose that it is a hard disk). For those
interested, the URL is:
http://www.empeg.com/main.html

I am in no way affiliated to this company and I am NOT recommending this
unit. I am just interested in the technology and any spin-off.

   I have yet to start on my MP3 project, but I plan to use my trusty HP48
calculator for the entire interface. It's perfect. It's has a large LCD, many
buttons, built in IR for transmission and recieving, large memory, easy to
program, and the 48's are being replaced by the 49's so prices are about
$50-60 for the HP48G. Only drawback is the screen isn't back lit.

Don't step out on a limb or anything.

I have seen one of these players, and it's a gem.  Custom designed Linux
main board with USB, IR and serial inputs.  They even considered running
SETI@home or RC564 in the background while idle.

I can't imagine searching for buttons on my 48gx while driving. Have you
thought about using a GameBoy?

Try this address,
   http://www.mp3.com
   Then look under hardware, then go to list all (down the bottom).  There are
two types of MP3 hardware 1)Commercial (bugger all info just send em money) and
2) Homebrew.

   It takes a bit of link following to find a site with good information, but
there is heaps of it, from software, to hardware, and a fair bit of information
on creating a PC power supply using a 12V car battery (my interest).

   Im currently developing a CAR MP3 player.  So Ive heaps of information and
links lying around so if you need more info let me know.
