Pioneer Electronics today introduced an adapter to allow users to play songs from their iPod through the company’s car stereos. The CD-IB100 adapter works with the IP-Bus system in more than three million Pioneer head units that were “sold during the past several years.” Pioneer stereos will be able display up to eight characters of text including album, artist and song names, with the ability to scroll additional information. Users will be able to operate their iPods with the stereo’s front panel controls. The CD-IB100 adapter, which will be available in March for $140, also takes full advantage of Pioneer’s audio enhancement capabilities such as Easy Equalizer (EEQ) and Bit Media Expander (BMX).
