Clarion has announced two new head units that are iPod compatible. Both the VRX765VD (single DIN) and MAX675VD (double-DIN) provide touch screen control of any 3G or later iPod. iPod video playback is also enabled on both unit’s 7� fold out screen, which hopefully won’t lead to peeps veering off the road. If that ain’t enough, the units provide 24 bit digital to analog 5.1 audio playback, and satellite radio reception. The MAX675VD takes it a step further and includes voice controlled HDD navigation system. The VRX765VD is available in February for $1100, no word on the MAX675D’s release date and price.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
