The FORD/M-LINK1 V.1C iPod adapter delivers CD quality sound directly into the factory sound system via the CD changer port and all the controls on the iPod™ also work so selection of Playlist, and any other playback functions can be controlled there. The iPod™ will remain in Direct Mode allowing you to search and select music directly just as you would in portable use. You will have access to all of your Playlist and settings and will also charge the iPod while the radio is on and to prevent battery drain, a built-in timer will automatically stop the charging process 20 minutes after the radio is turned off. The FORD/M-LINK1 V.1C uses the iPod docking connector as both an audio and power source, limiting the wire bundle, freeing the console of clutter. Connecting the FORD/M-LINK1 V.1C is also a simple plug-n-play affair.
» Charges the iPod's™ internal battery.
» Direct audio connection for optimal sound quality (no FM Modulator)
» Compatible with all 30-pin iPods & iPhones. Apple's new Lightning connector requires an adapter
» Includes docking cable (6 ft. long) connects directly to the bottom of the iPod™
» Charges the iPod while the radio is on and charging continues for 20 minutes after the radio is turned off.
