Apple does it once again!

This might be of interest to Apple fans and owners of iPods (or BMW's).

SWEET. I bought my first Mac last November after "driving" a PC since about 1988. It ROCKS. Feels like I traded up to a BMW actually. More than my G5, I love OS X. It blows Windows away...

Very nice!

I've been waiting for the Dension Ice to materialize for my Audi for a while, it seems to be permanently not-quite-in-stock. It does a fair amount of what the BMW setup does (less displaying the tracks visibly).

And I hear Alpine is coming out with a truly iPod-compatible head unit that does all of the goodies also.

Fabulous way to drive.

I'm wondering why everyone is giving credit to Apple for this.
I'd give the credit to BMW. They are the ones who made their
system work with an iPod. Apple might have given support on
it, but the connector was always there, right?

Agreed. If Apple would have done this the iPod wouldn't have ended up in the glove compartment :P I'm sure that Apple had something to do with this deal though...

Greg: I'm not sure what you are doing. But if you click on the
word THIS in the first post it opens an iPod page at apple with
a movie (ad) in the middle of the screen. I just checked and
still works okay here.

Dave: that's what I'm saying. Ofcourse Apple had something to
do with it. But it looks to me like BMW did all the work....

I knew that's what you meant :) I just wish I could get that in my Ford Focus! Let's see, I would also dig Bluetooth for my cell phone and GPS to get me around, but that's another subject :P

Greg: as someone else noted it would be quite likely that car
entertainment manufacturers will incorporate it into more
products. That should be very likely. Then again there are plenty
of MP3 playing car systems already out that can play a lot of
MP3's directly from CD. That's a pretty long list as numbers as
well...

But an iPod is much more than an Mp3 player. Not to mention the number of Mp3's that even the 10Gb (smallest) iPod holds. I use mine to store data and it has a copy of my OS and several disk recovery utilities to work on other Mac systems.

Yeah I have the 10g and i love it, but I can't play it in my new jeep because it only has a cd player, and i dont want to hook up that device that you tune your radio to because i heard the quality sucks. I use to just hook it up to my tape player. But something that hooks up directly to my stereo and can be controlled by the buttons on my head unity/stearing wheel would be GREATTTTT!!!!!

Bah! Who needs an iPod? I have a Kenwood Excellon in-dash cd player/tuner that plays MP3s. I can fit 12 albums on one CDR. Use the +/- keys to change tracks, and the AM/FM keys too change folders (albums).
