Scion iPod integration
Scion today announced that its entire 2008 lineup will come with standard iPod connectivity. The 160-watt maximum output Pioneer AM/FM/CD audio system features a head unit with iPod control that integrates track, artist, and album information from the iPod into a one-line display on the head unit's screen. "Connectivity is achieved by simply plugging the iPod into a port via a connector cable, providing outstanding sound quality through the car's stereo system and constant power to the iPod. Music is controlled through the head unit and steering wheel audio controls. A standard mini-jack port also allows users to listen to their portable music collection through the tC's Pioneer speakers." The Scion tC also comes with standard rear head unit outputs that allow for external amps to boost power to the front and rear speakers, and subwoofers.
