I have been given the go ahead to get a digital music player for Christmas, great I hear you say! But the problem lies in what one to get….

I want one that I can play through my car stereo, though I can’t mess with the car too much as its a company car and not mine to mess with really. I also would like the ability to play videos and look at images.

The choice at the moment is probably between the nice but propriety iPod Video with a Griffin iTrip to play through the car stereo. The other choice is either an iRiver or iAudio, the benefits is that they both support open formats and are not tied into stuff like iTunes, the downside being is there is lack of options for playing though the car stereo.

Advice anyone?
