I am looking at getting a 2006 highlander (without 6 disk changer) and I am
curious as to what ipod connection options are available.

I currently have a 98 camry and I am semi-happy with my monster icruze. It
is not perfect, but is servicable. And from what I understand, it will not
work in the 2006 highlander.

Thanks in advance,
Eric

Hi Eric, First of all, please excuse my english writing.
I'd just bought a new 2007 Corolla and i bought tne «iPod Interface
kit» by Toyota. When i receveid my vehicule i was to have a very bad
surprise.
They call this an «iPod interface». I call it a radio interface. Let
me explained. I have absoloutly no control over my iPod because the
device hook to the radio take over my player.
I'm no longer able to navigate and scrolled with my iPod. A firmware in
the box take over and i have to pilot my iPod trough the radio. Plus, i
have only six playlists available AND without any information than: CD
1 for Playlist «name» and Track x for tune «name». The trick is,
you have to go back to iTunes and create playlists called TOYOTA1
trough 5. The 6 is for all the content of your iPod.

This is dumb and near false representation. It is far away from what
user called and interface. It's a farce for 300$ canadian dollars.

When i plugged my iPod i can't no longer have my interface and i have
to punch number 1 to 5 (you have to remember what's in it).

If you want absolute usual control over your iPod in your car look at
Dice Electronics. They have the product that i was thinking when i
placed my ordrer at the dealership.

Please keep me posted.

Sylvain
