TEN Technology has introduced the iRide, a new product that combines an iPod dock with a raised glove box organizer. Designed for cars with direct-connect iPod integration kits (OEM or aftermarket), the iRide ($79) features a dock that works with all Dock Connector iPods which can be mounted onto an included glove box organizer from Auto Organizers. “The iRide will keep your iPod safe and secure in your glove box, and let you connect up with just one hand,” says TEN. “The iRide can be permanently mounted onto the Glove Box Organizer shelf to keep your iPod protected from damage and vibration, and hidden from view while connected to you car’s stereo system. Slip in the particular insert for your iPod model and your iPod can ride in style.”

Since the article said Designed for cars with direct-connect iPod integration kits (OEM or aftermarket) i’m guessing this means that you would control it via the head unit in your car.

The article says it’s for cars with direct connect ipod integration kits so you would control the ipod from the stereo head unit.

Looks like those of us who cheaply attach our ipods through the headphone jack to our car stereo could be happy that it’s available from the front.

Glenn, I confess I have no idea what your comment means. The whole point of a glove box connection is to hide the iPod, and control it through your car’s head unit. I.e., the entire idea is to not have the setup you describe. I like this idea, because it helps to protect the iPod and organize the compartment. I have my 60gb iPod in a clear plastic case, but this makes even more sense.

I have this and I love it.
The company closed up.
Does anyone know of something similar?

Thanks,
