My newest car is six years old and I just use the aux input and whatever music player I grab that day and it works fine. Can’t control anything thru the cars audio system and I guess that’s what you’re trying to do. I feel your pain on the aftermarket solution. Most new cars these days make it very difficult to integrate any aftermarket stuff.

Any suggestions on players, I think that will be the solution.
I bought my Mom a fiio X2 (iirc the right model) for her car/Bose standalone speaker system. I loaded it with a couple hundred albums she owned already which were in my archive and then a bunch of live stuff. She digs it. I think it was less than $150. BT connectivity and flac/high res playback 
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

Crutchfield, baby...

I'll add that Crutchfield makes this sort of thing super easy, with specific instructions and mounts for your particular make/model of vehicle.  If anyone is thinking about changing out their car stereo head unit, don't be intimidated.  It's really easy.
For giggles I went to Crutchfield to see what they had. Plugged in my information and they came back with they don't recommend replacing the radio in my car. They have zero! HEHE

That’s what I was getting at. I have 3 vehicles in my household and only one could take an aftermarket head unit. Any music player will do. I even use old iPods. I guess it depends if 24 bit playback matters to you. If so, look at the FIIO’s.

Yep you got it. Documentation sucks so far(it will sort by file name if that is all it has). A music player appears to be the solution. What is most important is probably sorting either by file name (Etree) or Folder then Track Number found in the tagging. 24 Bit would be nice. So I guess FiiO's are the answer. Any version easier for the sorting request? Thank You.

I guess the last time I used them was for my old 07 Subaru.  It's a different world now!

LOL!  I dug a little deeper and it looks like you're right!  I guess the days of old-fashioned head units is days-gone-by...

Digger- PM kindms, he has gone through the filenaming/sorting issues with Fiio and can probably help inform you.

I will do that. It would be good to know what I am up against. Though stripping the tags maybe a solution for the car. I can't believe I grabbed a untagged mp3 folder.

its funny, my entire opinion on the value of car warranites was turned on its head by my friend (also named Terry) whos a music lover but also big-time car guy. We were on a road trip going to a show having that discussion and he pointed at his infortainment system and said "if that goes out, the car doesnt work, it has the ECM integrated into it... and its about 3 grand to replace. You cant afford to own a car without a warranty these days, they are simply not user-servicable"
