Now with text display on SAT compatible Volkswagen vehicles

LAKE TAHOE, Nev. - DICE Electronics, LLC has announced the release of its Silverline series interfaces for iPod now supporting selected Volkswagen models. The integration line features text display on late model Satellite compatible vehicles and a fast browsing function to ease navigation and to improve user experience. The kit is now available for MSRP: $159.99!

The DICE integration kits are designed to create a seamless interconnection between the iPod and the entertainment controls of the vehicle. The kits connect through the Volkswagen CAN bus, utilizing the satellite port of the factory radio and charge the iPod on the go. With the introduction of the Silverline integration, DICE continues to advance the features of their integration solutions.

Browsing on the iPod is intuitive and easy, because it was designed for content navigation. Based on many years of experience in engineering integration products, DICE developed a new interface that makes selecting between thousands of songs easy and efficient. To ease content navigation, the Silverline series now includes a hierarchical filtering. Contents can be narrowed by selecting a Playlist, and then further narrowed by selecting an Artist. If desired, further content filtering can be achieved by selecting an Album. Of course, having Playlists is not a requirement, and users are free to explore music in their own preferred way. Best of all, while browsing for new content, playback of the current selection is not interrupted until an actual selection is made.

Steering wheel controls will work well with the iPod interface kit, allowing the driver to change tracks and in some cases Rewind and Fast Forward. Having not only the ultimate experience for iPod vehicle integration, it also features an auxiliary input jack making a portable satellite radio or DVD player connection simple. The new interface supports all the latest iPod models including the new Classic, nano and the iPod touch.

"Our U.S. based engineering, design and customer service allows DICE to interact with its customers and consider their ideas and needs in future products. As a result we created the Silverline integration kits," said Laszlo Barabas, CEO of DICE Electronics, LLC.
