Just got the car (it's a sweet as Mazda 6 luxury sports by the way!) No Aux-in jack. And very little room around the cigarette lighter port. It's going to be tricky to fit a unit into the small space next to it and adaptor will need to be long and thin. I was thinking of getting a double adaptor so both the Player and the FM transmitter could be plugged in at once but I don't think there will be room. May need to go for a Nano/Mini sized unit instead unless I can get something with a cradle and find somewhere to stick it on the rather busy console of the car.
Unlike the iTrip the after market Transmitters for the other brands do not seem to be powered by the unit it's self but with batteries or externally. Wonder what sort of battery life they afford?
Any other thoughts in light of this added info?
Simple, clear menu system
Adaptor to the cigarette lighter to run on the cars battery, cradle good to if available
May need FM transmitter unit (not sure if car stereo has a Aux-in jack yet, have not received car yet)
Preferably available second hand in Australia. Cheap as possible.
I am a total n00b at this so any help/comments/advice appreciated
