Tom's Hardware Guide: Tom's Hard News: "Clarion intros in-car, iPod -compatible GPS-stereo system

April 30, 2005 - 13:51 EST

If you have an iPod, you might be happy to know that Clarion developed a key-on-the-dashboard solution for the usage of your music device in your car.

It's not a simple iPod compatible car stereo, but rather a full car GPS stereo system. The MAX950HD consists of a DVD player, a 30 GByte harddrive, a 6.5-inch colour touch screen that displays TV, DVD movies and GPS maps. The kit is iPod compatible, so you'll get all the information from your iPod on the large colour screen, and you can control your fave audio player straight from the touch screen. Sound-wise, expect nothing less than Cloud 9, since this in-car entertainment solution is DTS and Dolby 5.1 compatible. The amp pumps out four times 43 watts. Price of this set, without the iPod, is about $2800. "

The ultimate iPod accessory?
