    Here's my problem. I have a 2011 Tacoma with the upgraded audio system. I drive my Dad around alot in the truck. He likes to listen to AM talk radio while we're on the road. The trouble is he's very hard of hearing, like almost deaf. If I turn up the radio loud enough for him to hear, I can't think straight.

    In the house he uses a set of wireless headphones with volume adjustment so he can watch TV without blasting the rest of the neighborhood. Is there something similar I could buy that would let him listen to the radio in the truck? A headphone jack right next to the RCA in jack would be totally awesome but I've never seen anything like that for auto stereo. Is there a set of bluetooth headphones that would let him listen to the radio in the truck via a bluetooth connection?

    Thanks

    A ipod nano would work nicely, they have a built in am/fm radio.

    Yeah. I'll probably go that route. That way I won't have to listen to Rush Limbaugh.
