Buy one that has memory card slots and mp3 input. That way you can still play your cd's and then play mp3 files when underway.

I have yet to see a cd player that wont skip when you slam a wave.

Sony and Panasonic offer units with memory card slots, others also.

I have tried several, and several mounting positions, (45*, 90*, 180*, doggy style). There are no CD players/changers that are worth a crap in our environments while under way.

iPod, iPod, iPod. Its my favorite accessory for the boat; and probably the best gift I have ever recieved. You can get any number of products, but you can burn all your CDs to the unit, and be ready to go with no CD change hassles.

I have found same as the rest. They all skip. Another alternative is satellite radio. I have a sony head in my scarab with the xm sat radio reciever. If I had a mp3 player I'd undoubtably forget it and be mad(had to remember the beer and ice). I have set up my buds hustler and a few others the same way. Sony has a new remote I put at the helm with a lcd display so I can control it from there and read the source , station, track,etc. Has worked out great for the last 2 years. If your radio is fairly new they may make a plug n play reciever for it.

If you have an auxilliary input via a headphone looking 1/8 connector, that works. Some have auxilliary RCA inputs. (Sony has a whole system bus processor for multiple devices.)

You can also grab an FM modulating broadcast device online (eBay, about $40 ) that will allow you to tune any FM stereo to a frequency that you broadcast your own FM to FROM the iPod. No integration required.

Alpine and a few others have headunits that you can actually drive the iPod through the headunit and remote controls.

Just installed both and they work great. Also they make this if you want to control ipod from radio unit http://www.crutchfield.com/S-D50tWjg...B&i=020EA1251B

I mounted a cd changer using long bolts with a springs above and below the changer so the changer is just suspended in the middle. This was a big improvement over having the changer screwed down tight. They also make head units with built in memory to store music. I think they use a hard drive, don't know how well that would work.
