HK Drive Play

Harman Kardon at Apple Expo unveiled the European version of , an integrated iPod docking system specifically designed for automotive use. Unlike competing products on the market, Drive + Play provides "complete iPod control," including full browsing and playlist handling capability, while minimizing distractions for drivers. Drive + Play charges the iPod when docked, displays customized user menus such as playlists and user preferences, and shuts itself off when not in use. The European version of Drive + Play will ship in November 2005.

The Harman Kardon Drive + Play system includes these integrated components:

  • A backlit LCD screen, large enough to present five lines of iPod menu text.


  • A five-button navigation control unit with universal mounting options mimics the iPod's user interface and can be mounted on the center console or other location for easy access while driving.


  • "The brain" serves as an information processor and connecting port. The European version of Drive + Play features a wired FM transmitter. A 3,5mm audio output jack connects Drive + Play to any vehicle that has an auxiliary input. The additional auxiliary input of Drive + Play allows the user to route other audio signals into the vehicle's audio system.
