iPod in your car


Posted October 5, 2005 - By CySurflex Steinitz

How do you listen to your iPod music in your car?

FM Transmitters like the Griffin iTrip are terrible, static-ridden solutions.

If your car radio has an "Auxilary Input" then you can just connect your ipod directly to that, but most factory radios don't have that, and besides that solution is not that elegant.

There are hundreds of other options like an Alpine radio that was designed to interface with the iPod. You can see many more at the iLounge "in-car solutions" forum, and specifically the "pictures of real car installations" thread.

My choice is the Dension IceLink>Plus. It works by basically fooling your factory radio intto thinking that it is controlling a CD Changer. It allows you to control your iPod from  your car stereo to a limited extent, but more importantly it allows you control your iPod from your iPod, which a lot of these other solutions don't. The iPod user interface is so great and simple, no car radio solution even comes close. 

My only problem with the IceLink was that the way it mounts on your dashboard is either with strong adhesive, or by drilling some holes and mutiliating your cars interior.  To solve that I also ordered a ProClip, which has a customized mounting solution for every car model, designed to allow mounting without damaging the interior.
