Blitzsafe working with Apple on iPod adapter for car

Update: An anonymous reader has sent us the contents of a reply email from Blitzsafe:

“We did start a basic interface for the iPod, I do not think before September or October, We are working with Apple now. We do have the Aux interface available at this time, you will use the iPod to control function, or you may wait. Stay tuned.”

Wanted to let the iPodophiles know that Blitzsafe, the makers of the auxillary input adapters, is working directly with Apple (according to Blitzsafe) to create an adapter (for cd changer ready headunits) that will not only provide the audio input but also allow the headunit’s controls to control the iPod. I’ve not gotten confirmation on providing a power source for the iPod via this adapter, but headunits normally send 12v to the changer. The adapter probably won’t be ready before September/October time frame for general release.

Great news, especially since my iPod continually tries to kill me when I’m driving (distracting me while I should be braking, turning or just paying attention in general).

Editor’s note: Blitzsafe has confirmed this to be true in an email to iLounge with a simple ‘yes.’ No other information was provided.
