We are going on a 3 month road and I am not sure whether to just buy cheap MP3 or a cheap tablet. Interested to hear what others use to play audiobooks on long cartrips….

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • If it’s just for the trip, I would be going for the cheaper option. If she shows genuine interest in it, then look at buying a more expensive option



  • I would go for the cheap tablet. More costly the an MP3 but you can do so much more with a pad



  • I would lean towards a tablet only for the reason they are much more versatile, it will depend upon the format the audio books come in though.



  • a cheap mp3 would be good if you only want it for audio



  • Depends on your Budget. I couldnt live without my ipad. I brought a program online that converts movies so i can transfer them onto the ipad. If it just audio books you could just get a cheap MP3 player, does the same.



  • I will use ipad or if you dont iphone is good too.



  • both are good ideas … or you can borrow from friends too if you dont wanna spurlge out…



  • A cheap mp3 player does the trick.



  • Buy a iPad. Download games, books, games and movies .. A lot of places you stop might have free wifi, is make the most of it.



  • I would go for the tablet because it can be used for other things after the holiday.



  • You can use a Kindle for audit books as well, it first 1000’s of books as long as you don’t need all the bells and whistles!



  • I would go with the tablet as well.



  • My kids have the cheap generic tablets from Kmart that they use in the car. I find anything with an android system is better as your not restricted to only using apple apps. The downside is that the batteries don’t last as long as I would like :D



  • ipad type devise as you can do so much more than just listen to music.



  • I’d love to go 3 months on the road!
