Alpine iPod-ready stereo

Alpine Electronics today began shipping its iDA-X001 digital media head unit with built-in iPod connectivity. The head unit features a USB connection, allows users to navigate through all of the digital content on an iPod, and is designed with the same screen ratio as the iPod itself with a 320x240 color TFT screen. The screen displays artist, album, and track information as well as album art from the iPod while offering three screen-view options. Users can choose to view album art as well as the song name and track information; larger album art and the song name only; or clock and calendar information. Apple's fifth-generation iPods with the latest firmware can link directly to the iDA-X001 via USB, while its Ai-NET BUS platform allows the head unit to connect to a variety of digital media sources and formats such as XM, SIRIUS, and more. Alpine's iDA-X001 digital media head is priced at $450.
