ok, I have a new 2011 Honda Insight, got it in June, has 2300 miles on it. I only have one problem with it, and it is car talk related… I listen to the podcast, so I download that to my MP3 player (Zen mosaic). I love the fact that the insight has BOTH a Aux input for my Zen and pod casts, AND an Ipod port for my ipod (where I keep my music). the Ipod is in the console and the Zen is attached to the Aux input on the face of the stereo.
The problem is; When ever I plug in my Zen, I have to put the Volume of the Zen very high (23-25 out of 25) to hear anything. I also hear a hissing noise when ever it is plugged in. Also (related I think) after I listen to the Zen for more then 1.5 hours straight, it sounds like the MP3 is “skipping”. it will be playing, then silent for a sec or two then come back.
When the skipping happens, I can disconnect the MP3 from the stereo and plug in the ear buds, and it is all fine, no skipping, no hissing.
I do not get hissing from my ipod through the stereo.
So is this a problem with the Stereo or something that is unavoidable or a problem with the MP3?
