IPOD your ride

Clarion VRX55VD

While there are already several options for iPod owners who want to listen to tunes in their cars — ranging from cheapo FM transmitters and casette adaptors to the infamous tricked-out BMW — the market is about to get a whole lot more crowded.

Pioneer, Clarion and Alpine are all at CES showing off new direct-connect units that will work with new and existing car audio systems.

Prices will range from as little as $100 to as much as $2,000 for Clarion’s previously announced VRX755VD (an update to its current iPod-incompatible VRX745VD), which will include a 7-inch touchscreen that will display song information, playlists and, presumably, a warning that motorists should keep their eyes and hands off of it while driving.

Three words: Yes, yes & yes again :-)
