Make Your iPhone the Heart and Soul of Your Car Stereo

I get so frustrated when I'm in a new car and there's no way to plug in my iPod. Get with the times, car manufacturers! Or bring them up to speed yourself with the O'Car, a dedicated iPhone-based head unit.

Oxygen Audio's O'Car has a RDS radio tuner and a 4x55W amp, but the magic happens when you strap in your iPhone. The rotating mount charges your phone and holds it horizontally or vertically, allowing you to play tunes through the iPod app, Pandora radio or whatever else, put your iPhone to work as a GPS navigator, or make hands-free calls over your car's speakers. Or play Infinity Blade while you're in bumper to bumper traffic.

I would buy that. Hypothetically. If I had money. Now I am stuck plugging my $3 Walgreen adapter into the cigarette lighter and jiggling the cable until both channels play. Fuh.

I have no compulsion to plug my ipod into my car, let alone have a mansion for an iphone.

I can play my ipod in my car, but it doesn't get charged!

That would be cool, if I had an ipod. Or a car.

I don't listen to music while driving. It can be very distracting.

That's a nice device, but I'm not an audiophile so I can listen music from my mp3 CD player in car. I rarerly look for new music so I don't need a device with removable memory..

Most newer cars come with an AUX jack to plug in your iPods. Mine does :)

i'm partial to just stuck headphones on to drown out the chatter though.
