First Look: DICE Electronics Cradle with Video-Out and iPod Integration Kits

Connecting to a separately sold universal mounting cradle that’s equipped with Dock Connector and video output ports (for color 4G and 5G iPods only), DICE Electronics’ latest series of iPod Integration Kits ($160) are vehicle-specific – very vehicle-specific. These kits provide a line-quality audio connection and charging interface for your Dock Connecting iPod, allowing you to control your iPod through your car’s existing stereo system. Some cars support the display of iPod text on their radio screens; others don’t.

The Integration Kits consist of a box and two cables (iPod to box, box to radio), and include an aux-in port for use with non-iPod devices such as satellite radios, while the Cradle with Video-Out ($60) comes with plastic adapters for full-sized iPods, minis, and nanos. You have to provide the vehicle-specific mounting hardware yourself, and most likely get a professional installer for the Kit.
