I currently have an old Sansa c200 and am thinking about upgrading to a 2GB Clip. I use my c200 to listen to audio books through my car stereo. I have noted a previous poster’s comments about having to crank the volume up all the way to be able to hear anything - this is very true. On my old Sansa I have to: a) max out the volume setting in the c200 menu, b) crank up the Sansa volume control all the way, c) use an external amplifier (Boosteroo) and d) crank up the volume on my car stereo to about 3/4 volume. It’s a pain and if I ever forget to turn down the volume on the car stereo before shutting the car down it blows me out of the car the next time I start the car and the stereo has automatically switched back to radio mode. You would think the car stereo manufacturers would figure this out and provide multiple input settings to handle a feeble little MP3 player (they seem to think everyone uses IPods I guess).
Does anyone have experience using the Clip with a car stereo? As much trouble as it is to use my current Sansa I’m concerned that the Clip might have even less power than the old c200 and I won’t be able to hear anything at all.
