EvilEgg: Ha! I still have a cassette deck and I'll probably have that for at least another five years
FloydA: Rotating disc media are a stupid thing to put in a moving vehicle.

AcneVulgaris: FloydA: Rotating disc media are a stupid thing to put in a moving vehicle.Car record players used to be a thing.
T.rex: Even more useless than a CD player is a factory installed GPS system... Its usually a double-dinn, so it wastes so much real estate, is ugly, is hard to use, and you typically have to pay for the service. It actually prevented me from buying a particular used car that i otherwise liked a lot.

TuteTibiImperes: Eventually having a solution that would just mirror my phone screen on an in-dash screen through USB or a dock in the console wouldn't be bad though.
Enemabag Jones: I know cars are becoming oversized entertainment centers, but let me talk this onion off my belt, pull these loose bees out of my pocket and argue in favor of the CD.I have thought about going to a USB stereo, but then considered I would have to find the album I wanted. And a touch screen is just as bad. CD's can be burnt from MP3's those arguing that the CD is dead.It is simply so much easier to flip through a book of CD's, vs having to navigate a menu (touch screen or directory on electronic portable media).
rikkitikkitavi: TuteTibiImperes: Eventually having a solution that would just mirror my phone screen on an in-dash screen through USB or a dock in the console wouldn't be bad though.Exactly what I want. And it shouldn't be USB or a dock. It should be wireless/bluetooth/etc. Keep your phone in your pocket and emulate it on the dash while you're driving.
