I was recently in the market for a new headunit for my car, and was looking for something to use one of my many Sansas with. I went to a lot of different car audio stores, asked about a variety of decks, in particular the ones with USB inputs.
When I questioned salespeople whether or not the USB inputs will work with my Sandisk MP3 player, and got a blank stare, as if Apple is the only company capable of making MP3 players.
Sandisk, I implore upon you, please get on the ball! I think 3rd party support is the key to Apple’s success, and as the #2 DAP maker, Sandisk is in a position to really make things happen!
Create a truly OPEN standard, and open it up to car audio manufacturer’s, periferal manufacturer’s, and especially OTHER device makers.
