Mopar, DaimlerChrysler’s original equipment manufacturer, has announced that it has expanded availability of its factory-engineered iPod Integration Kits for most Chrysler Group vehicles.

Mopar’s iPod Integration Kit provides direct connectivity between your iPod and the vehicle’s audio sound system. The iPod attaches to a custom cable port located in the glove box. The iPod adaptor module is concealed under the vehicle dash, translating and then sending the signal to the vehicle’s radio receiver.

Once attached, all iPod control functions are available through the vehicle’s audio sound system. Using the audio system or steering wheel controls, drivers can browse their iPod music collection of playlists, song titles, and artists that are viewable on the radio display face. Radio display and audio prompt features vary between radio model.

“People love their iPods and they love their cars. Expanding availability of our iPod Integration Kits means more Chrysler Group vehicle owners can hit the road and enjoy both,” said Chris Cortez, Senior Vice President – Global Service & Parts, Chrysler Group.

While the iPod is connected to the cable port, it’s continually charging – whether it’s playing or turned off.

The kit is compatible with iPod, iPod Mini, iPod Photo, iPod Nano and iPod Video. The iPod Integration Kits from Mopar are available for purchase and installation at Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships across the country.
