CD players SUCK on the trail. They get full of gunk, they skip, and I have never been able to keep one going in my Jeep for more than 6 months.
HERE is the answer: Get a USB-enabled head unit. I have one in my daily driver and now will be putting one in the Jeep as soon as I can. I can plug a 4 GB flash drive into it, and that holds 35+ albums of music. I have smaller flash drives that have different mixes of music on them, and I can change them around whenever I want without having to burn a new CD. The nicer ones will let you scroll through the folders, while basic ones will just play.
Also, because mine is also Ipod compatible, it will play the I-Tunes formatted files without issue. It plays AAC, MP3, WMV, WAV, and more.
Even better, my I-Tunes on my PC will automatically suck my CDs into m4a format when I put them in the DVD drive, so it's as close to plug and play as I can get.
I will never use CDs again.
