Default Connecting P2 in Car

I'm trying to hook up my P2 to play through my car stereo. I currently have an FM transmitter but the quality isnt always great and I'm looking for a direct connection. I'm wondering if I buy a connector for my in-car stereo that connects to mp3 players by USB, will my P2 be able to play through it. I question this because when the P2 is plugged into the computer it is unable to turn on and function.

Any help would be appreciated.

the P2 works in USB-HOST but has to be UMS before (MTP won't work)
But you have to know that in USB-HOST you can't use the P2. You car stereo will control it and you will have to navigate on your P2 through the car stereo screen

USB-host is a feature on devices which have a USB port like you car stereo or another mp3-player or hifi system

MTP: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Transfer_Protocol
UMS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_mas...e_device_class

I just use an Aux cable. It has the headphone jack on each end. Not all car stereos have an aux input, but most newer ones do.

I use an aux adapter also. Or you can use a cassette adapter. Both work fine but won't produce "Bose sound quality"; whatever that means anyways........

The aux adapter was my original idea but my dad has been helping work on it and thought there was a better option. I know the aux will perform better than the FM adapter I have right now that goes in and out constantly. Thanks for the input.

I have a Sony mex bt5000 cd player that has built in bluetooth. It works great for wireless pairing with the p2. The bluetooth is why I got the 16gb p2. Here's cnet's review of the player. If you look hard enough you can fin one for around $200.

My next car will have an AUX input as well as stereo bluetooth. My current car, not too old, doesn't have any input strategy for portable audio. FM is possible, but I can just stick up to six of the original CDs in the deck if I need a few hours of music on a drive.

Interesting discussion.

In dash receivers that have built in bluetooth cost significantly more than those with only the aux input (I have noticed some that also have an usb input).

So I'm wondering . . . for those of you have have car stereos with Bluetooth, is there a consensus that the sound quality using the bluetooth connection is better than when using the aux input on the receiver with the headphone out jack on the P2?

I picked up a JVC at wall mart with both an Aux jack and bluetooth for $100. Quality is just as good as if you are wearing head phones. I picked that up for my truck after a vactation in the wifes car with an FM tramsmitter for her radio. quaility sucked. it was still better then listening to most radio out in west Texas, but it wasn't that great.
