    I was thinking about using a Marine grade stereo. Are they any more skip and or water resistant than standard car head units?

    Marine stereos are usually sealed against the elements better. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Few CD drives are truly skip proof, but many use modern technology to make it seem like they are. The drive is programmed to always be reading ahead and then sends its data into a memory buffer. If a jolt causes the laser to lose tracking for a few seconds, you never know it, as the unit keeps sending music out from the memory buffer. As soon as the laser finds it place again, the memory buffer gets quickly refilled once again. The end result is that you hear uninterrupted music. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah i also have a Pioneer unit, plays the mp3,cdr,wmv,has the XM, good unit, the only time it has ever skipped is when i would hit a bump big enough for me to thank god i had my seat belt on, otherwise i'd have been layin on the pavement behind my truck. Nice unit, and are actually fairly inexpensive.
