I have an XM mpi3 that I put in a home docking station and I am very happy with it. It records 100 hours of programing. How could I play that recorded programing in my car? I noticed it has a charger which I could maybe plug into the power supply, but is there a way to have the radio charged up and listen to it until the battery needs charging? How would I hear through my car radio? I could just put the headphones on and listen that way, but don't like to use headphones in the car.

Headphones in a car is never a good idea, and illegal in some states. If your radio is designed to work in a car (I can't find a model called mpi3) it may have the ability to play through your FM radio, or if your car radio has an aux input you could use that.

You'll have to check the manual for your radio, but when I had a unit like that you had to have it in a car cradle in order to use the FM transmitter.
Shop XM Satellite Radio
