That's a good point about the range indicator, but I wouldn't trust it for that anyway. I doubt I'd take it anywhere more than 20 miles from home anyway. The locations of charging stations might eventually come in handy, though, and of course those will be on the display and updated constantly and automatically according to the publicity. I feel it necessary to ask about the CD player because I am also on the list for an Aptera and they are touting an entertainment system that is all solid state, i.e. no moving parts like a CD. I could put my music on a flash drive and plug that into a USB port, I suppose, although that would be a lot of work, but I'm not going to put all my library audiobooks onto flashdrives. For one thing there can be 20 disks and some publishers split up the audio into as many as 99 tracks, named Track1 through Track99 on every disk. Unless I were to put on one disk worth, then manually rename each track D1T1, D1T2, etc. then do the same for D2T1, D2T2, etc. for all 20 disks (up to 1,980 renaming operations) I would end up with a drive where every file had 19 others with the same name. The system would not be able to play them in order. It's too much work anyway, even if the files were already correctly named in order. Also, I am not so sure that by 2011 there will still be CD players in all cars. My current CD player is broken so now I'm listening to cassette tape audiobooks, and it is hard to find a car that has a tape player now. We were able to get one only by special order (losing a storage bin in the dash) when we bought my wife's car in 2005, and only on certain models. It'll be the same for CDs soon.
