Harman Kardon's Drive+Play fully integrates your iPod into your car stereo system, offering the best in-car interface we've seen. Plug the Drive+Play's dock connector cable into your dockable iPod, and your iPod's interface appears on the Drive+Play's five-line, backlit LCD display --- you have full access to all playlists, artists, albums, and songs via a five-button, rotating controller that mimics the iPod's own Click Wheel. The Drive+Play connects directly to any car stereo with an auxiliary input jack using a standard audio cable, or to most stereos with a CD changer connecter via an optional third-party adapter. (The system also has a built-in FM transmitter for those who want the screen and controller but would rather avoid a more complex installation.) It even charges your iPod while connected. The only drawback is that everyone who rides in your car will want to play with it.
