zune player

Does anyone here know if zune players can plug into a car radio like an ipod?

I'm debating between the Zune 120g and the ipod classic 120g...but not sure which one is better.

Also, I wasn't sure how well Ipod handled audio books.

Sadly, I do not have a jack in my car so I'll have to buy another radio system and install that. If I had a cassette player in my car that would have been more useful it sounds like. So for now I was going to buy the parts one piece at a time and then when summer hits I'll try installing the radio myself.

I tried that one already, pretty much wasted 30 dollars. the reception would cut out if your in the city or drive under a bridge... and then sometimes if the song was too low in volumn the device would turn off. It was rather annoying and I don't want to have to deal with that while I'm driving.

i'm hoping a direct plug into the radio would be much better than the FM transmitter.

I've never had much luck with the FM transmitters either. I use a cassette converter for my mp3 player.
