Volvo officially adds iPod option

David Thomas

Volvo V50To build on the story we brought you during MacWorld comes the official word from Volvo that they will offer two options for iPod connectivity across their 2005 model line-up. One type of adapter offered in the S60, S80 and V70/XC70 models features the glovebox connector similar to the one used in BMW's but unlike that set-up Volvo's will allow you to select tracks and control volume from steering wheel controls. Unfortunately the S40, V50 and XC90 will use a dashboard mounted FM modulator adapter. But on the upside Volvo will feature custom playlists on iTunes featuring today's "best" Scandinavian artists. Pricing for either adapter hasn't been announced yet.
