Adaptor to play USB through factory radio AUX

I am unable to find the answer to this. I have seen where you can use Blitzsafe so that you can connect an ipod or mp3 player to factory radio.

Is there such a thing as something like that, but instead of using an ipod or mp3 player, you can just have a USB stick?

I would like to put my music on a USB stick, and access it with the controls the same way you would ipod.

Thanks in advance!

I have seen some really cheap ones on eBay. I have no idea how good they are.

I ran one for awhile until I upgraded my system. It worked fine, I guess the only downfall with mine was it didn't show the Track titles/names and plugged in in place of the factory XM. I am selling this btw and is in the for sale section if your interested

i think you're talking about FM transmitters

they look like this:


they are cheap, and allow you to play music through your stock radio.

Thanks!

That looks like what I am looking for.

Did I read that right? Can you use USB or 3.5 mm jack like a standard MP3 player?

I am planning a trip to Chicago, along with other expenses going on now. So it may be a month or so. I will definitely let you know though. This looks like a good thing to have. I can put all of my music on a small hard drive (external laptop drive ~250GB) and keep it in the cuddy. Then there will be tons of music available.
