iPod your car
Now that your interface or auxiliary cable has been installed, you'll need some extras that will give you a seamless iPod-in-the-car experience. First, you'll need to make sure your iPod doesn't go flying in every direction when you make turns. We recommend Belkin's TuneDok, which secures your iPod and resides in your car's cup holder. You can also use a strip of Velcro and affix the iPod in a case, for example, directly onto your dashboard.
Those who want to keep their hands on the wheel while driving, can invest $60 in the DLO TuneStik, which combines an FM transmitter and radio frequency remote control. The TuneStik has a clip-on cradle to hold the remote to your steering wheel, allowing drivers to wirelessly play and control their iPods.
Going further up the price scale, Harman Kardon's Drive + Play 2 is the most sophisticated in-car iPod accessory on the market. With its large, color screen and wireless control knob, the Drive + Play 2 displays iPod album art and gives drivers an intuitive means of searching for songs. It also has an advanced music customization feature that lets users give feedback on songs to refine their personal music "channels" as they drive. The system plugs into--rather than replaces--your car stereo, and at $400, it's more expensive that many "made for iPod" stereos. But if you want a stylish and easy-to-use in-car iPod experience, the Drive + Play 2 is hard to beat.
