Monster iCruze sees delay, $50 price increase

picMonster today released further information about iCruze, its iPod auto solution that allows users to play their music collection through their car audio systems. Originally announced in November for $199.95, the accessory is now priced at $249.95. The availability of iCruze has also been pushed back. It was supposed to ship before the end of the year, but is now scheduled to ship in early Q1 2005. One piece of good news is that Monster now says iCruze will work with Alpine M-Bus aftermarket car stereos without additional cables—most cars will require the Monster Factory Linx Interface Cable and may also require a Monster Factory Linx Interface Module (both sold separately).

Still trying to decide if I’m going to spend the money to add some sort of system for my iPod to my Jeep. As it is, I’m hesitant to replace my factory radio because I’m concerned about the aesthetics.

I bought the neo ion for under $200 and love it.  We now have two.  One is ina ford explorer and one for a toyota highlander.  The sound is great and the steering wheel controls now work with the ipod.  Their tech support is the best that I have ever dealt with.  Well worth the money.
