Harman Kardon's standalone auto iPod adapter

Harmon Kardon car ipod adapter main

Harman Kardon is planning a fall release for a new car iPod adapter that'll add a back-lit display and separate controller for more convenient operation of the ol' white player while driving. Both will be mountable anywhere in the vehicle, and are united in audio goodness by the small "brain" that's the central hub for all the physical cable connections as well as a charger for the iPod. Connection to the car's audio system can be of the direct line-in variety if you opt to have the unit professionally installed for an extra $70 fee; otherwise you can set up the $199 adapter kit yourself and use the built-in FM radio transmitter to pump the audio signal to your can stereo. More pics after the break.
