▀▄ eas - mObridge iPod interface available for e9x M3!

The mObridge iPod Kit seamlessly integrates the iPod with the head-unit of your MOST-equipped vehicle. The majority of newer BMW vehicles are equipped with an internal data (transporting audio, video, voice, data, and all other information and entertainment content) network, connected by optical fiber, known as "MOST". mObridge are experts in this technology and are therefore able to provide BMW drivers with technically superior solutions at value that is unmatched by solutions offered by BMW themselves or other aftermarket alternatives.

The mObridge AUDIO iPod interface is not limited to 250 songs or folders like the BMW CD changer or BMW's own iPod kit, but supports the entire iPod contents as well as providing an auxiliary audio input and allowing manual mode control. It is available for vehicles whether or not the vehicle supports MP3 -- in the BMW models that do not support MP3, mObridge will emulate CD tracks.

The mObridge AUDIO product line seamlessly integrates the iPod into the vehicle's multimedia network to allow full control and access to all Playlists, Artists, Albums, Genre, All Songs as well providing an auxillary input audio connection for external additional audio devices. The audio interface also provides full control of Random modes, Repeat and Scan as well as providing the ability to switch the iPod out of lockout mode (most other iPod vehicle kits require the iPod interface be locked out from the user) and provide manual control over the iPod and the ability to use simple track up and down. The iPod is also charged while attached to the interface using USB charging. This is also a unique advantage versus competitor solutions that either may not be able to charge your iPod or they will not support the latest generation of iPod that only charge via the USB connection.
