Tekkeon has introduced the NavDock, a new Home Media Center with on-screen iPod navigation. In addition to the integrated iPod dock and support for the iPod nano (with video) and iPod classic, the NavDock also features a 16-button wide angle infrared remote with a five-way navigation pad and quick keys that jump directly to the Videos, Photos, Music or Settings menus, and the ability to charge the iPod whether the unit is on or off. “With NavDock, we wanted users to have virtually complete on-TV control of their iPods,” says Jerry Yang, president of Tekkeon. “Rather than just provide minimal access to some of the iPod menus, NavDock enables users to take advantage of commonly used features, like lyrics and equalizer, all with the NavDock remote.” The Tekkeon NavDock is available now and sells for $130.

I dashed over to this website, as I’ve been waiting for this new generation of products that serve as a link between the latest ipods and TVs.

But I quickly learned, from their site, that you cannot navigate videos using the iPod Touch!

What is so special about the Touch that is impeding them to do this? What do you know about other manufacturers being able to overcome these limitations?

It looks great. I am looking forward to a review. Bummer it doesn’t support iPhone. I have two docks permanently connected to different TVs in my house, this could get me to upgrade them.

This thing looks awsome. I don’t know Tekkeon, are they usually making good products?
