he Drive Play from Harmon Kardon puts the familiar iPod menu on a backlit display right on your car?dashboard or windshield, where you can read it at a glance.

Mount the Drive Play in a convenient place on your car's dashboard and you can scroll through playlists or switch tracks at your leisure, all while keeping your eyes on the road.

By buying one of these all your doing is

'Please steal my ipod..... there is one under my seat or in my glove compartment.... hell look on the driver door side panel............................ you never know you might find a SatNav etc etc...."

Theives might just break into it just for the sake of it.... imagine you taking your car to Liverpool with one of thse on the dash.........

these are really good quality... the thief comments may be true... but they do look permanently installed and not easily removable... just dont leave any goodies on show.

Not "steal me" but "steal my iPod". I personally like everything OEM, hidden and neat, but I guess not all people do or can.

IPods are a portable mp3 player, I think most theifs have the sense to know that if there is no one in the car the Ipod is 'highley' unlikley to be in the car, and most people have the sense to 'not' leave their 'portable' mp3 player in the car.

Blimey, you have made so many assumptions there. Thieves with sense? Hmm. Regardless, everybody I know who has a proper ipod system in their car keep their ipod firmly in their car the vast majority of the time, but that's why you have you have a hidden installation, for example in the glove box.

Without trying to sound patronising, why are people told to remove their sat nav bracket, regardless of whether they keep their sat nav in the car? Exactly the same reason, once you have something which makes you "more likely" to have item x in your car you increase your chances of coming back to a broken window.

I'd love to do this with Citroen Picasso but can't find anything about fitting something through the head unit :?

Et voila:

etc. etc.

Lots of car manufacturers are bringing out ipod units (Renault have the tunepoint with USB/Aux/ipod, Suzuki have a unit, as do VAG etc.) otherwise the aftermarket ones above are usually very good. You just don't use the bracket and fit the cable to your glove box, they usually fit to your CD changer input and map your playlists to your presets etc.
If you have a pre-installed CD changer you usually have to lose that or have a CD changer retention unit, I have an indash CD changer but prefer my ipod interface obviously.

Some cars also have aux inputs that simply can be used, i.e. the Megane Update List has a cable input which just needs a simple connector buying, but of course you don't have ipod control.

imagine you taking your car to Liverpool with one of thse on the dash



No crime anywhere else then?

Great price only thing puts me off is points people have made already about making it potential target for people trying to break in car to see if a Ipod is still left in pity there not something that has a base and could just remove when there not in use tbh aren't they

A few things to be aware of, I have one of these units so speak from experience; there are two models hitting the streets, the European version denoted by EU in the model name that comes with the wired FM transmitter and the US version (yes US in the model name) that doesn't, if you want the wired FM transmitter check which model it is you are buying.

Also the screen and 'joystick' both mount on to a small metal disk that you fix to the car either by screwing into the trim or using the supplied sticky pads, so you can remove both items when leaving the car if you wanted to, just rotate screen or joystick 180 degrees to remove.

Finally the line out on this unit is 1volt this my not be enough to give a good signal to some head units with an AUX in (like the one in my Nissan).

oh right cheers for the info i might consider getting one again now :-D

have you ever been to liverpool? i suspect not. Judging by that comment the nearest you have been is reading about it in the sun.. please keep any half baked comments to yourself. Until you stop getting your education from tabloid newspapers and join us in the real world i suggest you cram a ham in it sir.
Im getting one of these, seems like the best option for connecting an ipod, fm transmitters are ****. i dont think the average thief would know what this is... why let the skum stop you, shall i not buy an iphone in case i get mugged? maybe i should just carry around small change instead of notes..or if i dont leave the house at all ill be safe.. LIVE A LITTLE!!

HOT!!

Hi,

Just got mine and installed it and well...it doesnt work! When you turn it on the screen says "please wait".... and theres a "2,1" in the bottom LH corner. The ipod then appears to freeze. Its a 5.5g ipod classic with relatively updated software version 1.2.3. Any ideas?

It will freeze unless eveything is plugged in properly.

I got mine a few months back for £30. I forget the company, they have a store somewhere and an online shop, but I ordered through their ebay store, much easier. Just eBay for it.
