I have an iPod Touch that was upgraded to iOS 4. I am sick of my FM transmitter, and am looking for an after-market car receiver for my 1998 Honda Civic with iPod support, but am concerned because of discussions like Topic : iOS 4 - Iphone 3GS - Alpine X303 - Not supported anymore.
Articles like iPhone OS 4.0 paving way for Apple-branded car kit? and the comments section of Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iOS 4 mention a feature called
iPod Out. Also, iOS 4′s hidden “iPod Out” feature brings iPhone support to your car without the messy third party UI talks about how BMW is announcing support.
I mainly listen to podcasts and audio books (and not music) on my commute. One of the key features I want is the ability to use pause/resume controls on the receiver when I get a phone call. Doing a "slide to unlock", then finding the pause button while driving isn't very safe, so I end up missing content.
