I love it - I like to listen to audio books when I'm driving and they take up far too many CD/DVDs but by using my ipod I can change them and listen to them really easily.
Thank you for your help. I have seen those on the internet, I don't think we have a dual input though, we don't pick the car up until Saturday so I'll have a look then.

I never thought of listening to the audio books in the car great idea I have 4 on my ipod, thank you great idea, I'm going to do that.

The Aux input is usually a 3.5mm socket, exactly the same as a headphone socket, so you basically need a headphone lead with a plug at both ends. Don't go to maplin, they will charge well over the odds. Try CPC farnell in preston. (though delivery might kick in).
I hate maplin, they do what pc world do and charge you for not really knowing what you're after.
you want a "3.5mm to 3.5mm" jack lead... i've put links below.

Ipods have good enough batteries to not need charging anyway, especially if you have a dock in the house. In the car you only use the same power as you would in the house.

maplin
you'll have to tick cables, or scroll through a few pages to get to the leads on the maplin link, but you can hopefully see the price differences.

Some monitors come with these cables if they have speakers fitted. (if you bought an appropriate monitor you might already have a lead, I did !

Edited at 11:06 PM. Reason: added links and a bit more

Bear in mind it depends what ipod you have. My husbands will work in the car through the aux but my ipod touch won't, I assume I would need a slightly different lead.
