Mustang / iPod and sound

Howdy:

I have a 99 mustang v6 coupe with a mach sound system. for some time
now, I've been using the cassette player with one of those
sound/cassette adpaters to play my music from the iPod.

Any suggestions on a good dash stereo unit to replace the current one
that will allow me to just use a mini-jack to mini-jack cord to get
sound from the iPod? I want something that will continue to make full
use of the power in my mach system. The new unit doesn't have to have
cassette or CD (I have a CD player in the lower part of the dash from
the factory install)

I'm waiting for the day that someone creates an in-dash unit with full
ipod controller, so I can just slide the ipod in and have full control
from some kind of digital remote.

Thanks

Re: Mustang / iPod and sound

Have you taken a look at the Crutchfield www.crutchfield.com catalog?
Aside from all the various HUs, they now have a total section on just
iPod gear.

There are also several versions of FM modulators which might be worth
checking into. I use one for my portable DVD/CD player to channel
movie soundtracks through my stereo system. I recommend the hot wired
(either hard wired or via lighter socket) over the batter powered
ones. The transmit the sound source over a given FM frequency.
Mine (from Crutchfield) inputs from the antenna, and outputs to the
HU. Has patch cord and power lines, and even has a wired on/off
switch.
