    Question Using S3 in the car- Music

    I recently got a 2005 Ford Explorer and it does not have a cassette deck or Aux plug in for me to listen to music.
    I have over 5,000 songs on my sd card and was wondering what options I might have.
    Did see this through amazon.com

    Amazon.com: Boss 612UA MP3-Compatible Digital Media AM/FM Receiver: Car Electronics

    I do not listen to cd's anymore....was curious how people have their phones hooked up to their car.

    I tried an FM transmitter, there are so many stations in the Wash. DC area that it was hard to listen without static.

    So, what say you?

    Thanks

    If FM transmitters aren't feasible, and the truck doesn't have an Aux jack or USB socket, then you would probably have to consider replacing your stereo with an aftermarket one.

    I figured about a replacement. I do not have an aux, nor usb.
    Any suggestions on a replacement?

    If you get a head unit, make sure it has a removable face and lock it up. The one day I forgot to do that was the one day a thief used a slim Jim to get into my car and steal the head unit. This was in the DC metro area.

    Crutchfield is the best place to go through as they include kits and wiring to make it easier to do on your own. Personally, I'd see if you can get a head unit that does both auxiliary input and bluetooth calling/music streaming.

    You didn't mention if you had a CD player, if so there are adapters for a 3.5 plug.
    Or: Easily Add an Auxiliary Port to an Old Car Stereo for About $3
    Still requires a CD player
