3) Are CDs still the most popular music format for cars? They are today, although cassettes haven't entirely disappeared. Many new vehicles are including DVD players that will play music and video with viewing screens built in for backseat enjoyment.
4) What if I want to have a lot of music on hand? You have many choices now including the above-mentioned satellite radio, FM radio, CDs and MP3 CDs (which compress the sound to put as much as 10 hours of music on a single disc). All these devices can be built in or installed after you own the vehicle.
5) How do the navigation devices work? Navigation devices use Global Positioning Satellites (GPS), a system of satellite transmitter/receivers that can locate and track individuals and vehicles. Vehicle navigation devices can be equipped with maps of virtually every part of the U.S. Newer models can even give up-to-the-minute traffic information and suggest alternate routes.
6) Isn't it dangerous having all these electronics products in the car? Not if the driver pays attention to the road. That's his or her primary responsibility; in fact, there may be fewer distractions if passengers-especially children- are entertained and occupied with games or movies.
