Currently, the integration of OEM vehicles is not satisfactory for the consumer. "60 percent of iPod users use the vehicles but are not satisfied with the available integration solutions at the moment." Aftermarket Business, Vol. 116 Issue 10, p60-60. Car manufacturers are not expected to provide adequate integration for at least 5 to 10 years. And it still leaves the other 218 million vehicles that have been registered with the US missing iPod integration. And you will realize that there is virtually no online retailer that focuses strictly on iPod integration. Most of them only offer integration products to the large general array of mobile electronics and those that are not clear in the description.
Do I want to deal with a company that is strictly an iPod vehicle integration specialist? I want a company whose unique existence is to fully integrate iPod with the vehicle. And for me to leave FM modulation or cassette adapters. The real deal can be fully integrated with iPod car kit or iPod vehicle integration modules. The iPod car kit offers full factory stereo integration with vehicle ignition, constant charging, stereo head control, album / artist stereo text display and steering wheel control that some FM modulator and cassette adapter do not know.
You need protection and convenience for your expensive investment too. Instead of letting his iPod lay in the glove compartment or the passenger seat, waiting for it to be dropped from the hard brake to the floor where shoes and dirt are waiting to scratch their iPod and glorious finish; you need the ProClip iPod cradles and vehicle-mount solutions that can be installed and do not require special tools, disassembly or internal damage.
I found these TRUE integration solutions. Universal iPod car kits start at $ 99. For Full Integration & # 39; Acura, Audi, Bentley, BMW (motorcycle) are also available for Chevrolet (beta), including car flash control, constant charge, stereo head control, album / artist stereo text display and steering wheel control (most vehicles) Honda, Hummer (Beta), Infiniti (soon), Lexus, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Mini Cooper, Nissan (soon), Porsche, Scion, Toyota and Volkswagen.
