Monster has announced that its iCruze direct-connect iPod car audio solution is now available at a new low price. The main iCruze unit now retails for $70, the optional display is now $40, and additional interface connecting cables and/or interface modules range in price from $10 to $30.

“This means that a customer can put together a complete iCruze package for only $150 (that is a $280 price reduction for a complete iCruze system as compared to the previous pricing),” says Monster. “It also means that some customers who only need an iCruze and an Interface Cable, and who choose not to purchase the LCD Display can own iCruze for as low as $80.”

Monster is still running a special sale on a complete iCruze package. You can buy the kit—which includes the iCruze main unit, the LCD display module and necessary cables—for $99 directly from the company.

This is so retarded. They STILL only have two models of mazda capable ubits and they are pick-up trucks.

I’m a bit annoyed at Monster because they won’t ship the iCruze internationally (or at least that’s what they said to me). They say that they will be able to soon, but I’ll bet by that stage the $99 package sale will be over.

I’m in Australia btw. Has anyone else had problems?

IT’s pretty obvious that they are comming out with newer models. I say if you have the money, wait.

Avoid Monster products. They’re a sleazy company, with no respect for others.

I ordered the $99 special a few weeks ago.  I got an email saying that shipment would be delayed due to the positive response and “publicity given from some web sites”.  Still waiting.

They sould give them away for the hassle of installing it.  It is a piece of junk- You cannot play anything except what’s in a playlist.  Once it is plugged in, you can’t use the menu.

Lame Lame Lame.

Use icelink or ipod2car.

Believe every bad thing you hear about this product.  I don’t think they ever tried it before they offered on my car.  The display only works if you turn off the radio, the up-down no longer works correctly, the mode switch for bass-treble-bal is disabled, etc.
