Default Who has the nicest Ipod Aux In units?

Hey guys. I have a couple customers that want Ipod Aux In's installed in their cars. I personally rock a Zune and an old Creative so I use a cheapy. What company has the nicest ones that utilize the factory head unit? The cars they are for are an 07 Porsche GT3, 2005 Land Rover, and an 02 E55 AMG. Thanks.

Are you looking for new headunits that connect with the ipod and dispolay everything on them or just a normal aux in? I personally have an alpine that I can connect my ipod to and control the ipod completly from teh headunit. It is very convenient to be able to see artist and titles of the songs on the HU without actually looking at the ipod.

Looking to hook an Ipod up to the factory headunits and have as many features available(Ipod charging or track display on the factory radio) as possible.

Try Denison as I've seen some pretty well integrated units. They are pricey from what I remember, but when you are talking higher end cars, I don't think that is an issue. Here's a link: http://www.dension.com/icelinkgateway500.php

Those Dennison's are sick. Thanks everyone for the input.

I've got one of these in my Jetta: http://www.usaspec.com/

Due to the fact it utilizes the factory head-unit's external CD changer input, though, it doesn't show track information on the head-unit, except for track time.

Being able to control tracks and volume from the head-unit and steering wheel is nice, though, because you just toss the iPod in the glovebox. It also has L/R RCA inputs for connecting other MP3 players, and, upon shutting the car off, it pauses and charges the iPod for like 60min.
