Apple’s new in-car iPhone integrator, launched this week in advance of the Geneva International Motor Show, uss Siri to give hands-free voice command functionality for dictating texts, navigating music, accessing maps and more via a built in display.
Available from July (it’s not clear whether the above pix are CG or real), the minimalist Devium Dash ($290 – $340 + shipping) is:
…built around a (hinged) faceplate made to accommodate an iPhone or iPod touch, securing it in a CNC’d aluminum and plastic cradle while giving you full access to the touchscreen and all your apps. Other features of the Dash include a double-din body, 50W x 4 output with 2 preamp outputs, and your choice of standard aluminum or anodized black or white finishes.
The result of a successful Kickstarter project by Paul Lizer, future iterations may include possible faceplate upgrades for iPhone5, Android and other smartphones.
