    I'm sure they're on it right now...
    They're just trying to figure out how to charge $500-$1000 for the option.

    iPod connectivity, 3 times more than iPod itself .

    they will just get better and better , this little device is not going anywhere for many years . It will evolve like the new one has a flash drive so all your music is in ram .

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    Not everyone who has an mp3 player has an ipod... It should be an option if anything but they should offer options for other mp3 players as well.

    What other player has sold anywhere close to the (24 million and counting} ipods that Apple has sold ..

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    The point is they just need a mini-jack aux input. Then anything you have will work: ipod, other mp3 player, old turn-table that barely fits in the passengers seat and you have somehow connected to the cigarette lighter for power, ANYTHING. I don't know why all cars don't have mini-jacks.

    Adding a mini-jack would cut into their 40K profit margin per 911 sold.

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    let face it Porsche is droping the ball big time on this one , even Ferrari has got it comming . You should be able to control the ipod from the steering wheel and see the ipod screen on the Porsches in dash screen ...... 2006 folks

    go to the ipod demo

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    Porsche has consistently out-marketed itself with iPod...


    for a company so savvy when it comes to pricing, this is teetering on debacle~!

    and why? because of an insistence to maintain proprietary systems??

    ---all the more reason to go Italian!!!

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    Buying a Ferrari instead of a Porsche because Porsche doesn't offer an iPod connectivity? Ouch.
    But I agree...at least they could offer some sort of USB/USB stick connectivity like VW introduced now, a highly interesting concept I must say.

    BTW: I just got my iPod nano (a black 4 GB one for me with a nice Rennteam.com engravement...thanks Steve and a 2 GB white version for my little daughter for her 5th birthday). VERY classy looking, very tiny, incredible feel and look. I also got a pair of those ETYMOTIC ear buds, incredible sound for such tiny things.
    Highly recommendable.

    You should have a chat with those saying that even the screen is out of place in a sportscar

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    Black Nano and Black 430 Spyder would be a nice combo .

    Did you get the Etymotic ER 4S or another model RC? I use the ER 4S a lot, very good mid range and upper spectrum clarity although the bass response can be a little thin.

    My favorite headphones are the Sennheiser HD 650s, but my coworkers say I look like Princess Leia if I wear them. They are ALMOST good enough that I don't care. Sennheiser is rather odd, though, only a few of their models achieve the carefully balanced "reference" type sound I like. The HD 580, 600 and 650 line does this...just in case you are curious about them.

    Enjoy the nano!

    my thoughts exactly

    Re: More iPods to ride in 2006 cars,Porsche is not on the list

    who would want to listen to music in a Carrera GT? The Engine in the back is the best music in the world...even in the lower rpm range/idle
