Default Re: ipod integration with car stereo

Believe it or not its a real pain in the butt to modify the OEM stereo in most cars today. You are probably going to have a tough time finding what you are looking for. Finding a passthrough is one thing but if you actually want high level control of your iPod you are best getting it in OEM equipment.

Might also want to consider a Ford Escape w/ the Microsoft Sync option ($299), does everything you are looking for w/ iPod (as well as Zune & all other MP3 players) + voice activated song/artist selection - and the SUV is reasonably priced + well reviewed:
We're all in it together.
