I have my iPhone hardwired into my car’s stereo. I love having the audio from my iPod, Last.fm or TomTom going through my speakers. It gets a little weird when I receive a phone call because for some reason that audio is different and I need to plug-in my headphones. Anyway, I’m always looking for something better and the O Car from Oxygen Audio looks really slick. I can’t think of a way they could do this any better. The iPhone becomes the stereo. You can even swivel to portrait. Now can I replace my entire dash with an iPad? Please?
“O Car is the only full-integrated head unit specifically designed and made for iPhone. Its patented technologies enable the user to control all standard car stereo functions using the iPhone touch screen, while allowing horizontal and vertical access, so that all iPhone applications may be used in the car: Listen to your entire iTunes music catalog, make a hands-free phone call or synch a Bluetooth headset, access your favorite iPhone apps for the car (GPS, Pandora, etc.), or listen to your favorite hometown channel on internet radio. The Car’s built in RDS tuner ensures that you can still listen to your favorite local radio stations and its 4x55W amp links to all of your car’s speakers to guarantee perfect quality sound. Meanwhile, your iPhone charges while it is clipped into the head unit. 3 FM bands and 1 AM band. 18FM and 6AM presets.” – oxygenaudio.com
