MP3 players

Good day all,
I'm thinking about using my MP3 player while on my bike. I saw a controller that fits on the handlebars for volume, change tracks, etc, but cannot find it now. Anybody have something similar?
Thanks

There are several to choose from, depending what player you have. Check Amazon for Monster iClick, Scoshe (?), iJet, all under "mp3 remote" or "ipod remote".

I use the iClick on the highway with my 1G iTouch. I velcroed it on top of the master cylinder, no issues with operation at all. YMMV.

I put my iPod on shuffle, put it on my pocket with the earphones in my ears and forget about it.

No it didn't, but I like that a lot. Looks very user friendly. I saw something much like the ijet, but it mounted on the handlebar, was intended for motorcycle use. I'm using my Zen now, but I have to pull it out of my jacket to turn the volume up/down, change tracks, etc.

I recommend a GPS that has mp3 capability, like the Garmin Zumo or Lowrance XOG

Randyo,
I'll do that next time. My wife got me a Tomtom rider 2 last Christmas. One of my riding buddies has the Garmin with satellite radio, man, that is nice!
