Honda Civic Tour features concerts and iPod equipped Civics

“Gearing up for the fourth annual Civic Tour, American Honda Motor Co., is pleased to announce this year’s tour headliner, Dashboard Confessional. The nationwide tour will launch on May 13 in Portland, ME.

The band chose to have the Civic Coupe (one of Honda’s top selling models) painted and designed with a unique and vibrant look. Included in this year’s customized Civics are state-of-the-art, premium audio components from Alpine Electronics. The system features a 500-watt DVD mobile multimedia system with DVD/CD/MP3/WMA/CDR/CDRW playback and satellite-linked navigation. High-performance Type-S speakers, subwoofers and V12 amps complete the system. Each vehicle will also include an Apple iPOD that can be controlled directly from the in-dash receiver using Alpine’s new interface.

Back this year, by popular demand, is the traveling Civic Tour Non-Stop Music Lounge presented by Alpine Electronics, where the customized Dashboard Confessional Civic will be showcased as well as provide a cool spot for fans to visit before and after the show. The new Civic will be on tour with the band, giving fans an up-close-and-personal look at the highly customized machine autographed by Dashboard Confessional. A total of 10 of these unique Civics will be awarded through national and local media promotions, one of which will be given away through civictour.com.”

i saw him about that long ago and then about half a year ago. i certainly didn’t enjoy moshing or being squashed against a guard rail the second time.

Does anyone know if the ipod unit will work with the current Ai-net equipped head-units and how much it will cost?

Alpine is gonna release an iPod compatibile head unit. You’ll have to scrap your current Ai-net head unit and replace it with the iPod compatible unit. Not sure if the Apine iPod head unit will also be Ai-net compatible.
