iPod in the car with Bluetooth
No more cables and difficult installations for those who want to bring iPods in the car. This is the prospect that comes from the announcement by the American company Scosche Industries, which specializes in accessories for Hi-Fi in the car and announced a Bluetooth interface capable of wirelessly connecting the player to a car radio.
According to a press release, the device would consist of two components, one connected to the iPod headphone output and one connecting to the car radio's AUX presta. The Bluetooth transmitter and receiver will allow you to spread the music from iPod to the car's speakers.
Thanks to the use of the iPod dock socket the transmitter will also be able to control iPod as if it were an external CD player, giving commands directly from the car radio. It will thus be possible to increase the volume or change the tracks of the iPod without having it at hand.
At the moment it is not clear or the cost of the Bluetooth interface if it will be exported outside the USA. Your announcement leaves open interesting possibilities both for car manufacturers who want to use it as an accessory, and for those who wish to operate as importers and distributors of a product that seems to have good prospects of success on the market.
