    What case did you have on your iphone that broke? Just curious because I’ve slammed mine “not thrown just fell pretty hard” a few times and I guess been lucky that it’s still fine.
    The case didn't break it was just shock that killed the iphone. The case was the iskin Revo (old style) that really protected the phone, so well in fact it made it a biatch to use the phone.

    sandm, itunes is drag and drop also. The trick is knowing how to do it as they don't explain squat very well! Highlight all the songs you want to add to your ipod/iphone in your library then drag them onto the device itself, not the music folder. Sounds screwy huh? Don't ask me why it works that way.

    You talk of 256k for thrw iphone for songs, do ipods have the 256k built in or do you have to change a setting somewhere. my ipod sounds fine but if i could make it better i will.

    It's not a setting but the music itself Brian is referring to. Example you can take a song from a CD and create a compressed audio MP3 file in 128/192/256 kbit/s or kilobits per second. The larger the bit rate the larger the file is as compared to the original CD format. The file size has no bearing on what it will play on as long as the device has an mpeg decoder built in which all Apple devices do.

    another thing to think about is your music on the ipod;iphone. you want to take a look and make sure its not highly compressed. You'll want the 256K media so your system has some decent dynamic range. Trust me on this one.

    First off, I love my iPhone...lol. I used my iPhone on the lake last weekend, no issues, and it was super choppy. Granted I'll probably use my iPod or USB device most of the time on the boat so I can take phone calls. Only time will tell if it'll with-stand lake abuse. I never forget my iPhone so it's nice to have all my music on two or three devices.

    You'll have to check the tech specs of the radio head unit you are purchasing to see if it'll charge your iPhone otherwise, this little adapter from Schosche (URL below) will allow newer iPhones or iPods to charge on any car radio. I think Best Buy sells these two. I was needed for the Alpine head unit I purchased.

    JMV - to clarify, I'm saying that the media that you download should be of the highest possible bit rate. so many times I hear a system that just sounds plain bad! and the guys look at me and say, "well, what do you think..."

    It's really not a function of gear so much as it is the media. making sure your packing high bit rate materials in your pod, thumbdrive, iphone whatever.... will rreally make a huge sound difference.

    Man its like a free sound quality upgrade without buying any gear!

    hehe

    hope that makes sense.

    Brian
