Sony has announced three new iPod-ready in-dash head units, including the CDX-GT420IP CD receiver, which comes with an iPod control interface. The CDX-GT420IP includes a 4.9-foot cable with Dock Connector that allows for full control of a connected iPod from the unit. Other features include a built-in amplifier providing 52 watts of power per channel, MP3, WMA, and ATRAC3plus compatibility, a front-panel auxiliary input, one set of preamp outputs, and EQ3 audio equalization. The Sony CDX-GT420IP CD receiver is available now and sells for $130. In addition, Sony also announced the iPod-ready CDX-GT520 ($140) and CDX-GT320 ($100), both of which require the $50 XA-120IP iPod adapter for full iPod control.
