I just got a transfer in my company. I'm driving a vehicle that does not have a radio. We are allowed to bring out own boombox into the vehicle and use it during the day - we have to secure it via straps. Okay, so I got one. Reception is pretty good, but I get somewhat bored with regular AM/FM radio - though I do listen to a lot of talk shows. Regardless, I bought an industrial type of radio (heavy duty) that has an aux. input. The radio has a little cd case on the side that would be perfect for putting my Z in. There is a small hole in the case where I could run a mini-jack to mini-jack cable. I could even wrap the Z in some sort of protective wrap (the vehicle can ride fairly rough on some of the roads) and still put it in the CD case.

Sounds good, right? I can use my Z and have access to my 1gb SD card. My concern is the extreme heat in the summertime. The front of the vehicle can get upwards of 90-100 degrees, I'm sure. There are sliding doors on each side, both of which are open, so there is good ventilation throughout the day. What I'm saying is, it wouldn't be like it's just left in the back of a parked car to cook. I'm just concerned about the screen and what not. Obviously the screen would be off, but would the heat potentially damage anything in the Z?

Let me know what you guys think. I don't use my Z enough and think would be a nice opportunity to get some use out of it.
