Has anybody figured out a way to play MP3s on the standard 2005 single CD
stereo?  I'd love to be able to take several CDs, rip them onto one and keep
that in my car.  Unfortunatelty, the standard player doesnt do MP3s (unless
I'm missing something).

Hi Steve,

Though I don't own an Prius. I have some suggestions.

I drive a Package 6 recently that had a cassette drive as well as a 6 cd
changer. You can use an adaptor to connect any source to the installed audio
system. In addition, this site http://www.coastaletech.com/  provides a
number of cool options for reasonable prices that take advantage of many of
the Prius's unique technology.

I prefer to use the cassette adaptor in my current autos because there is no
FM interference. Of course... your mileage may vary.
