The problem with the latest innovation to electronic file/streaming is that code can be inserted into the content that can restrict how and where it can be played. The corporate sellers are now interfering with fair use by dictating that the content can only be played on certain devices or with specific apps. This is dangerous ground since many people are oblivious to the threat and accept the restrictions imposed upon them.
That's all true, if you're strictly streaming. If you do buy or already own this is less pertinent, if at all.

I have two vehicles and one has a CD player but I have never actually used it. I have only had that vehicle since 2018.
Well that's a personal preference based on your limited travel. I'm hardly a tech cheerleader, but I do like when I have more options to listen to different kinds of music (and podcasts, and books, etc.) with minimal hassle.

We all have our sweet spots of what technology we're comfortable with, but the auto industry just can't support every legacy tech out there.
