CIO favors iPod car integration kit

updated 03:25 pm EST, Fri February 3, 2006

CIO favors iPod car kit's Executive Toy Box today revealed that Channell Commercial's CIO favors the iPod integration kit for his Mercedes R500 more than any other gadget. A dealer-installed option that costs roughly $250, the kit seamlessly integrates Cameron Forbes' iPod into his vehicle, negating the need for an FM transmitter or other device. "Living in the Los Angeles area, I spend a lot of time on the road and in traffic. My iPod has been my loyal traveling companion for a few years now. I can catch up on the latest music and podcasts I've downloaded. [...] When I decided to purchase a new Mercedes, one of the key factors in the purchase was the ability to integrate my iPod directly into the car's Harmon-Kardon sound system. The results are incredible. I feel like I'm driving in a concert hall, even at freeway speeds." When asked what the executive would change about his favorite gadget, Forbes cited his older 20GB iPod, and said he might upgrade to a video iPod. Forbes also voiced his hopes to integrate the iPod's video capability into the navigation display of his Mercedes. "I'd love to watch the last episode of The Office on the way to the office!"

    That's Good

    That would be a good news for car owners like me... Now I can install one in my Toyota MR2 Roadster VVTI... This car is has excellent toyota mr2 performance parts and handles like it is on rails. it corners perfectly.

    The transmission is a six speed sport gearbox which is ultra smooth and it is impossible to put the car into the wrong gear.

    The 1.8 VVTI dual overhead cam gives this little car more than enough power and it looks awesome driving down the road with the roof down as a convertible or with the hard top on (Coupe)
