Keyspan cable connects iPod to Ford Sync system

Keyspan has introduced its Sync Cable for iPod, a cable designed to connect Dock Connector iPods to Ford’s new Sync media system. Once connected, the iPod’s content is automatically displayed on the screen on the system, and the player can be externally controlled by the Sync system.

When connected, the iPod will also charge while the car’s engine is running. “The Keyspan Sync Cable for iPod provides the most universal solution for connecting iPods to the Sync media system,” said Mike Ridenhour, president at Keyspan.

The cable features a Dock Connector at one end, USB and mini-jack plugs at the other, and is available now for $49.
