Kenwood units control iPod

Kenwood recently announced six new head units each equipped with a USB port that scan the storage systems of any device attached via USB. The stereo manufacturer also said it will offer an iPod adapter to fully control Apple's digital media player. The stereo decks support common music formats such as AAC, MP3, and WMA files on any USB-enabled storage device, though no pricing or shipping dates were available. Kenwood did note, however, that there will be both single- and double-DIN stereos to accommodate different cars and listener needs, according to Electronista.

    That's cool!!!

    A great way to make some mods in my Toyota Tundra is to have one of this gadget... To add muscularity in my truck... I liked my new Tundra the first time I saw it at a car show earlier this year. The things that sold me on the Tundra were:

    1. Toyota's reputation and the experience that friends have had with Toyotas.

    2. The 5.7 liter engine. I like performance and the Tundra is like having a sports car that looks like a pick-up.

    3. The 6-speed transmission.

    4. The EPA mileage estimate of 16 in the city and 20 on the highway. (I am a careful driver and I have always been able to get or beat the EPA sticker estimates on every vehicle that I have ever owned and so far, according to the computer, I am getting 16.3 miles per gallon in the city with the brand new Tundra.)

    5. I liked the fact that my Toyota Tundra accessory have on-star and doesn't have satellite radio. Unfortunately, GM and Ford practically force you to buy those features on their higher end trucks, whether you want them or not.

    6. The Toyota double cab had a little more back seat room than my Silverado extended cab. However, the Toyota CrewMax just blew me away with the amount of rear seat space that it had, plus the reclining rear seat.
