ipod users check it out

for those of you ipoders who want to use the ipod in the car and are about to take the plunge on the blitzsafe aux-in check this out

Blitzsafe working with Apple on iPod adapter for car.

We did start a basic interface for the iPod, I do not think before September or October, We are working with Apple now. We do have the Aux interface available at this time, you will use the iPod to control function, or you may wait. Stay tuned."

Wanted to let the iPodophiles know that Blitzsafe, the makers of the auxillary input adapters, is working directly with Apple (according to Blitzsafe, blitzsafe@blitzsafe.com) to create an adapter (for cd changer ready headunits) that will not only provide the audio input but also allow the headunit's controls to control the iPod. I've not gotten confirmation on providing a power source for the iPod via this adapter, but headunits normally send 12v to the changer. The adapter probably won't be ready before September/October time frame for general release.

Great news, especially since my iPod continually tries to kill me when I'm driving (distracting me while I should be braking, turning or just paying attention in general).

Editor's note: Blitzsafe has confirmed this to be true in an email to iPodlounge with a simple 'yes.' No other information was provided.
ipod control using the car's buttons... mmmm... haha, only prob being now i have to wait til sept/oct rather than getting the aux in now... (=

That's pretty cool. I have no problems waiting, with XM.
