Over the years, the iPod has become such a popular music device for consumers, that auto manufacturers have started integrating iPod connectors in vehicles. Now Telemantics Research Group is saying that almost half the cars produced in 2007 will be equipped with iPod integration. The firm says that the iPod is “the most sought after feature in cars,” which is a pretty bold statement.
Also, auxiliary jacks are found in 60% of 2007 models. It seems that more people want to bring their digital music collections with them on the road. I for one am all for this. I always hated driving around digging through hundreds of CD-Rs for my one mix I liked. Now drivers with iPods can just create a few playlists for the road and drive safer.
