Apple to integrate iPod with Japanese cars?

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Mon July 18, 2005

More iPod compatible cars?

Apple is working to integrate its iPod with Japanese cars, following successful iPod-ready stereo system upgrades from other car manufacturers. The company intends to begin working with Japanese automakers later this year to develop car audio systems that use iPod digital music players, according to a report by Nikkei. "A similar collaboration is already underway between Apple and automakers to develop iPod-based audio systems for cars sold in the U.S. BMW cars have steering wheels with built-in control buttons to operate iPods attached to them. Similar audio systems are being used on Mercedes-Benz models of DaimlerChrysler AG and Toyota's Scion car. Nissan is also selling cars with iPod stereos."
