Remember that CA-IP500, the world’s first car receiver with an internal iPod dock. Guess what? It’s available now for $242, but you’ll have to search far and wide to locate one in your area, that is assuming you’re not in Australia, New Zealand or the UK. To add insult to injury, it looks like you can’t just jam your iPod into the player without first fitting your choice of iPod with the proprietary ‘sleeve’ (the Classic might be exempt from the sleeve and there’s no iPhone compatibility). Sleeve aside, it’s simply a kick ass product.
