    Hi, am wondering if its possible to have a USB port fitted to the van stereo so a flash drive can be inserted that holds 100s of albums rather than lugging loads of cds around ? anyone ever had it done or if its doable ? Thx in advance :D

    The stereo in our van has a jack plug point so we can plug the mp4 player into it. Maybe yours does too?

    We also use the mp4 with a small, battery-operated speaker for music whilst we're parked up too.

    only if the sound system can play digital content and has a line in compatible with usb. otherwise you will need a compatible head unit with a usb port

    Lidle's Stereo that they sell from time to time has a jackplug and a USB for about £26.

    Ours was from Halfords and less than £80. Bluetooth too, so it answers the mobile phone while you're driving (y)

    No, the stereo system in our van conversion (Auto cruise rythm on a Peugeot Boxer) doesnt seem to have anything to plug in to it :(

    I replaced the rather naff Sony radio in mine with a Lidl special, which has USB and an SD port. It has bluetooth for hands free and even reads any texts you get in quite a good voice.

    Are all your CDs the original audio CDs? If your player has MP3 playback it's worth 'ripping' the CDs with iTunes then compiling a few CDs full of MP3 files. You can fit loads more tracks onto a MP3 CD.

    Personally I bought a cheapo Aldi Slag player (ie easily accepts all sorts of input).
