Harman Kardon Drive+Play
15 February 2006
Excerpt: The Harman Kardon Drive+Play represents the best current way to integrate an Apple iPod into most car audio systems, and the controls work the same way Apple's do. But you'd better be an iPod music lover: You're looking at a total cost of $300-plus if someone else installs it.
Excerpt: (1 items) Until Harman Kardon released its Drive+Play, iPod owners that wanted to use their player in the car had a couple of basic options that were less than elegant: an FM transmitter or a cassette adapter. (A few lucky souls had a direct input jack, but until recently, those were rare.) The choice between these options left most people wanting much more.
Pros: Several connection options, Tight integration with the car, High quality audio
Cons: Screen isn’t as crisp and clear as it could be, Control wheel doesn’t “accelerate” as well as the iPod’s own Click Wheel
Excerpt: (1 items) Harman Kardon's Drive+Play fully integrates your iPod into your car stereo system, offering the best in-car interface we've seen. Plug the Drive+Play's dock connector cable into your dockable iPod, and your iPod's interface appears on the Drive+Play's five-line, backlit LCD display --- you have full access to all playlists, artists, albums, and songs via a five-button, rotating controller that mimics the iPod's own Click Wheel.
