It seems like cars would have already jumped onto the iPod bandwagon long ago but this year just 39% of new cars had built-in connections for mp3 players like the iPod. Next year the number of new cars with iPod connectivity is estimated at 58%.
And while that is a big step up it still seems like the car manufacturers are acting very slowly to adapt to the newer music medium. It could be they don’t want a repeat of what happened to the CD players in cars that became nearly obsolete when mp3 players came out.
On a side note, bluetooth connectivity will be featured in 82% of new cars.
