Battery related? "Skipping" CD

Having installed a Blaupunkt Seattle MP 74, which I am overall very happy with, I have, however, experienced an increasingly annoying fault.

Playing CD's it will from time to time "skip" or miss for a split second, which is not related to bumps in the roads and others. Same with the CD changer.

It is quite an intermittent fault, and the same CD will sometimes play without any problems and at other times it will every minute or so do the "skip".

As both the headunit, the GPS and the CD changer runs of the same live wire, I have a suspicion that it could be battery related (as in having a low voltage or drawing too much current), but would there be other culprits?
