Audiovox is the latest company to announce an adapter to enable you to play an iPod through your car stereo system. The Audiovox iPod Mobile Interface Kit allows for a direct connection of the iPod to most factory car stereos, letting you operate the iPod with the stereo controls. The $200 accessory will also charge the internal battery of the iPod and offers steering wheel control support (if the car is already equipped). Since the Audiovox iPod Mobile Interface Kit is fairly easy to install (with a plug-in connection to the CD Changer port), the company is offering it as both a dealer installed and a do-it-yourself program.

Audiovox hasn’t posted images of their solution, so I can’t comment on it, but the guys over at Enfig Motorsports already have a solution, which I think is similar to what Audiovox will be shipping, but far less expensive.  You can find more info here: http://www.enfigmotorsport.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.exe/online-store/scstore/store_ipod.html?L+scstore+rdxw7634ffaa29aa+1113617514

Doesn’t look like the Enfig solution is as widely supported as the Audiovox one though.

why can’t someone make an RF remote in a steering wheel mountable form factor? Sheesh. I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

Nice spam. An article about an Audivox product is posted, and the first response points to someone who is reselling a _completely_ different product (That’s not an enfig solution, that’s enfig reselling a Belkin solution).

the auidiovox posting is basicly spam.  they have no product.  there are already products out there that do most of what the product they describe wishes it could do.

the difference is that the other products aren’t advertising features they can’t deliver yet.

besides, audiovox is generaly purchased by people that can’t afford an ipod becuase they are too busy buying crank or skipping school.

the audiovox post is crappy pre-marketing to see if anybody would actualy buy it if they could make it.  i’ll be suprised if they actualy release a product that does what they say it will within the next year.
