Scion hearts iPod

Scion hearts iPod

We got the 2006 Scion tC in for review yesterday, and our staff immediately started scrutinizing the car. One thing I really liked is its iPod integration. On most cars we've seen, iPod integration is an afterthought, usually a cable plugged into the CD-changer jack on the stereo head unit. When you plug in your iPod, you can cycle through the first six playlists because the changer interface treats each playlist like a CD, but it can't tell you the name of the song playing--not so the Scion. A compartment in the center console houses an iPod jack next to a 12-volt outlet and an auxiliary audio jack. I plugged in an iPod and had full control from the stereo head unit. There's a menu control on the head unit that lets me select artists, albums, playlists, or tracks.
