The FRD03-POD/S digital converter allows you to interface your iPod directly to the factory radio (with built in Satellite radio control functions) in your Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury vehicle. Using this interface, the iPod will take the place of the Ford Sirius Satellite radio, providing you with the most interactive OEM iPod “INTERFACE” in the industry.
Unlike many other interfaces on the market, the FRD03-POD/S retains the iPod screen and controls as well as basic operation through the CD Changer or steering wheel controls of the OEM radio (i.e. play/pause, track up/down, fast forward/rewind). One simple connection provides digital quality iPod sound and charges your iPod at the same time. The FRDN-POD/S is compatible with Ford/Lincoln/Mercury radios featuring the 16 and 24 pin harness at the back of the radio.
Compatible with all iPod models featuring the dock connector including the new iPod nano and 5G iPod video.
The OEM radio’s Sirius Satellite radio controls will be utilized to operate the iPod, allowing you to benefit from:
● Individual search by artist, album, playlist, song, composer etc…
● Ability to display the following TEXT fields: Artist name (12-Characters), Song title (16-Characters, shown 8-characters at a time when song is first selected / 12 Characters show when searching songs), Album title (12-Characters), Playlist name (12-Characters)
● The option of using the OEM radio or iPod to control your iPod.
