My wife and I use our pickup to travel some with a 5th wheel camper. The radio is a basic AM-FM. Looked at replacing it with one that would fit into the same dash opening. The local electronics guru said we would probably be better off $$ wise to buy a CD server.
As they describe it, the CD server-player needs a 12 volt plug in connection and then plays and transmits your CD’s to the FM radio already in place. The guru said it would probably fit under the seat of the pickup and be out of the way.
What’s the Straight Dope? Is that how these things work? What’s the cost for one of these devices? Any recommendations on brands to look at? Brands to avoid?
