iOn iPod Connection Kit

By Wan Chi Lau

We have been playing around with adding the iPod to our cars since the player first came on to the market.

It was simple enough to add an AUX cable and get the audio signal to the headunit, but it was not possible to have the headunit control the iPod until the Neo iOn.

The Neo iOn is an iPod connection kit that will pass the audio signal from the iPod to the car stereo, thus allowing the headunit to control the iPod's functions. It also charges the iPod via the dock connector.

The Neo iOn is so small that we had many possible locations where we could install it in the vehicle.

The Neo iOn project is divided into:

- FirstLook

- Installation

- FirstUse

- InTheWild

Project Summary:

1. Difficulty - easy

3. Tools - radio removal tool
