    Iphone or Ipod questions

    im sorry if this is going on the wrong section but i dont know where else i would put this.

    i run a carputer obviosly and i just got my self an iphone and wanted to know if there any interface were i could controll the iphone or atleast the ipod section of the iphone on my carputer, maby in roadrunner? anything ither then itunes? i know what your gonna say about the music part but i keep my ipod updated more then my carputer because i have two cars and and i hook up my ipod to my second car more often.

    so yeah basically my question is about the interface for the ipod on the carputer or if anyone is doing anything of that sort.

    thanks for the help!

    I'd say your best bet would be to hook the iPod/iPhone directly into your audio system.

    why not just use the ipod cable and sink your iphone to the pc and use it from there?

    I currently sync my ipod with my carputer. This makes updates so much easier. No having to disconnect my carputer or network to my home PC. All i do is sync ipod with Desktop then sync carputer with Ipod. Everything nice and clean.

    i think mostly all the ipod interfaces are for car oem navigation setups. Haven't seen any interface between a pc and ipod.

    Once you've had the "Carputer" experience, you will wonder how you ever lived without it...

    Yes, iTunes will play music off a connected iPod/phone.

    the current free version of winamp can read the metadata and play music off ipods no problems.
