Alpine Electronics today announced that it is now shipping its Interface Adapter for iPod (model KCA-420i). The device enables users to listen and control their iPod or iPod mini from their car sound system using any of Alpine’s 2004 Ai-NET in-dash head units. The solution allows users to control iPod playback using the head unit’s front panel buttons or remote; view song information (artist, album and/or song name) on the display; and easily search for songs through the receiver’s Quick Search interface. The Alpine Interface Adapter for iPod is a hide-away design and can be installed anywhere in the vehicle. The KCA-420i is now available from authorized Alpine dealers for US$100.
