The Chrysler Group says it will be the first American automaker to provide iPod integration as an option in most of its 2006 models including more than 3 million 2006 Chryslers, Jeeps and Dodges.
Apple also unveiled the iPod Radio Remote, which combines a wired remote control with FM radio for the iPod nano, as reported here earlier this week.
Drivers will be able to listen to their iPod through the car’s audio system, select their music by artist, album or playlist with radio or steering wheel controls and see selections on the radio display.
Randy Ewers, director of Mopar Accessories, said using the iPod connections, owners can bring and listen to their entire music collections in the vehicle.
Apple VP of iPod Product Marketing Greg Joswiak said more than 40% of cars sold in the U.S. in 2006 will offer iPod connectivity.
The optional iPod Integration Kit for Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge model lines will list for $175 plus dealer installation. The kit can retrofit many model year 2005 vehicles, the companies said.
Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood and Pioneer offer aftermarket solutions for autos that do not offer iPod integration.
