Dual XDVD8182 In-Car
Dual today released its XDVD8182 an in-car head unit designed explicitly with iPod support in mind. It occupies only one standard DIN slot but is capable of playing CDs, DVDs, and iPod content courtesy of a retractable 7-inch touchscreen. The unit supports virtually all functions of dockable iPods attached via a bundled link cable, including music, photos, and videos. It can similarly display all relevant track information, Dual says. The device also includes MP3 and WMA disc support and can connect to 5.1 surround sound speakers, external displays, or rear-view cameras for larger cars. Dual has made the XDVD8182 available today for $699.
