    so i'm running into a new problem with my music... I've currently got about 50GB of just music that I'd like to be able to take with me in the truck. I don't exactly care if its on my phone sense I don't think I wanna spend the $400 to the get the 64GB iPhone (yes I'm limiting my phone to an iPhone because all my other electronics with with iOS and I don't want to have sync issues).

    so my dilemma: how do I take all 50+GB of music on the road with me???

    I've been looking into gettin a Pioneer head unit: Pioneer AVH-X5600BHS

    and this has a USB input in the rear that I'm thinking I might be able to plug an external hard drive into that's got nothin but music on it.. that sound like a possibility to anyone??

    how does it sync tho? specifically with iTunes and the head unit? I'm looking for something that can easily be filled/edited with iTunes but also works and can be controlled by the head unit.... i've always have stereos in my past car that could control my phones and I hate trying to screw with the music on my phone now while driving... I really don't like havin to look away from the road when driving

    The possible problem with a regular hard drive is crashing the heads on big bumps. I was going to try it anyway but the Entune system won't power a hard drive, only a memory stick... So I got a really big stick, but it was really expensive...

    I know I want the upgraded head unit anyway for many other reason... I don't like the stock stereo..

    also, as much as I like iPod's they're relatively expensive for one that's big enough to hold what i've got, plus in a short while I'll have more than any of them can handle....






    I really like music and am constantly getting more.. wouldn't be surprised if I hit 80GB by the years end..

    ok you got me beat.... currently sitting at a little over 10K songs... wanna swap some music sometime? haha



    question there tho... with having it all just on a flash drive, can you view it by artist or just track number??? cuz i had a stereo in the past right when USB was really get in started and it was a PITA haven to scroll through all the songs to find that one you wanted to hear

    If you tag your tracks properly, you can search by song name, album name, artist name, whatever...

    The problem with the big stick is that the processor in the Entune head unit is slooooooow... It takes a few minutes to index that many tracks, and even when indexed, the [ABC] [DEF] [GHI] search interface is difficult to navigate. It would be nice if in a future update, they would let you choose [ABC] then sub-choose [A] or or [C], because if you have 5000 tracks in [ABC], and you scroll through them 10 at a time, it can be a real pain to find the track you are looking for...

    that makes sense... I'm pretty sure all of mine are properly tagged.. at least the are in iTunes. and on the entune note. that's really stupid! I may not have 5K of [ABC] tracks but scrolling through the 1k+ i do have 10 at a time would suck!!

    No... I started collecting back in the mid 90s, when I ripped my CD collection (of around 1500 CDs) into .mp3s. Traded in the CDs for more CDs at Everybodys Records, ripped them, traded them, ripped some more, etc, etc for the last 20 years... Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm... :)

    Nothing much. I haven't been bitten by the mod bug. A little plasti dip. And a set of Wet Okole seat covers with gun pouch.
