Scosche Industries has announced it is shipping a new OEM iPod interface for select 2004-up Lexus, Toyota, and Scion vehicles. The interface, named AXIPTA, allows full control of the iPod through the factory radio. Control features include full text scrolling, full iPod menu navigation including artist, genre, album and song title, seek up and down, and volume control through the factory radio. The interface also includes an additional universal RCA audio input, and features plug-n-play installation with all the necessary harnesses included. “We are pleased to add the Toyota interface to our family of OEM integration products,” said Kas Alves, vice president, sales and marketing, Scosche Industries. “Our new interfaces allow consumers to upgrade their factory radios to control their iPod and our AXIPTA allows the user more flexibility. We are proud to bring another first-to-market product with our newest Toyota interface.” The Scosche AXIPTA is available now for $200.

my parents have a set of lexuses (lexi?), and i have noticed a lack of toyota/lexus auxiliary adapters.  i’d like them outfit them with an ipod solution other than the cassette adapter.  too bad these are priced like they’re the first to market, too…

I wonder if this will work in the 2007 Prius.  I have aux in, but would be nice to control the iPod through the steering wheel and head unit.  $200 isn’t bad pricing considering the price of comparable iPod solutions for Toyotas (which have some limitations in terms of control and browsing by different categories).

About time!!
My Scion has an aux port, but it is down near the shifter and the parking brake, and its for MP3 players other than my iPod.
I can’t wait to get my hands on this and by able to fill in the missing piece in my car stereo setup.
