It depends on the size of your music collection. From the specs I've found the hard drive is about 8Gb, I have an 80Gb iPod that stays in my car.
Also music with DRM copy protection can not be played back.
The other thing I regularly do is connect my iPhone to the iPod connector in the car and use it to stream Pandora or Slacker radio. . . now with the new combox funcitonality this may no longer be necessary.
So for me it's worth the money.
