Have a browse around for linux car mp3 players. I remember reading a couple 
of projects about this (don't remember url's though). Some of them mentioned 
drivers for LCD displays so you could browse through mp3's stored on the 
player via the LCD panel. 

Should turn up a few links pointing you in the right direction.
