iPod Bluetooth for Nissan

mobilecast has announced a new iPod Bluetooth transmitter that is compatible with the CARWINGS HDD navigation system from Nissan. The transmitter allows users to listen to music stored on their iPods wirelessly through car speakers on select vehicles. The device allows self-contained control of the iPod, creating a wireless remote setup. It also offers switching between Bluetooth hands-free (HF) communication and Bluetooth data communications. Pricing has been set at 7,800 yen.

The manufacturer says: "As a solutions vendor that focuses on wireless personal area networking (PAN), mobilecast worked with Nissan in developing and marketing an iPod Bluetooth Transmitter that is compatible with Nissan's HDD car navigation. Bluetooth technology is the subject of great international anticipation as a safe, secure, and easy solution for vehicles. Consequently, this collaboratively developed product is drawing considerable attention as a model for wireless solution in ITS (Intelligent wireless solution in ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems and Services)."

The new transmitter is available, initially, through Nissan's Japanaese online store.

    Wanna have this to my new 2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S... Though my previous car was a 1993 pathfinder, which is generation one, year one for the pathfinder in the states. It had 130,000+ miles on it when I traded it in. I got the all-new-for-07 Altima. I leased it, with 15,000 miles per year. The leasing deals they offer are fantastic, and the level of service I got from my local dealer was also top-notch.

    The car is a huge departure from my old nissan pathfinder performance parts in terms of design, performance and comfort. It comes standard with key less entry with push button start, and an auxiliary jack for my iPod.

    The car also has a CVT automatic transmission, which made me nervous at first, but I actually really love it. It is very smooth and makes the most out of the 175 horsepower that the 2.5 puts out. It actually feels like it makes much more power than it does. My salesperson chalks that up to the fact that you do not wait for the transmission to down shift when you need extra power for passing. You just put your foot down and it goes.

    The ride is smooth. Much smoother than my old Altima. The wheelbase is much longer on the new generation so I expected it to be a smooth rider. The seats are a bit firm, but supportive. I got the convenience plus package, so I get power seat, auto headlights, leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, alloy wheels and a power moonroof. I chose the Metallic Jade color because I know that by the end of my two year lease, I'm going to be seeing these cars everywhere I wanted to get something that was different and more rare. It's an attractive color on the car, in my opinion.
