pic The iStore is now offering the iPod2car auto interface for listening to music on your iPod through your car stereo. The $199 kit allows you to control your iPod’s Next, Previous, Fast Forward and Fast Rewind functions using your car’s radio. The iPod2car will work with all Dock Connector iPods (3G, 4G, and mini). “Compatible with many factory car stereos, iPod2Car retains the high quality audio by directly connecting your iPod to the CD changer input of the stereo, usually found in the back of the radio. Then you simply plug the cable into the Dock Connector on the bottom of your iPod or iPod mini. The one connection provides line audio output and charges your iPod.”

cool, but does it show the track info on the car’s display?

Good question. I’m inclined to say “no” since other such kits (Dension, Enfig) can’t do this.

Hmm.  The product site shows a Honda Element Dash and a Element radio below but if you look up the harness type it is ‘Not Available’ for that vehicle.  Argh.

This looks quite intersting.  I hope that a review is coming soon.  Also, I wonder if it could take the place of the tape player instead of the CD player when being installed.

What other adapters are out there like this?  I’ve looked at similar units in the past and they have not been compatible with my car.

It’s for OEM radios with CD changer and/or satellite controls, and does display text/track info on the radio.

The company is also comming out with interfaces to aftermarket radios soon.
