This review was originally published in the iLounge Holiday Buyers’ Guide 2005-2006. Please download the Buyers’ Guide for additional photographs.

There’s no iPod-to-car integration kit that compares with Drive + Play in scope: the combination of a large, four-line user-tweakable screen, convenient separate control knob, and your choice of line output, FM transmission, or (optional) in-line FM is unparalleled, though the best sound options require a pro installer to hook it all up in your car. Though cheaper add-ons can together achieve similar functionality, this looks and feels far more sophisticated.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
