Research Firm Sees 73 Million iPod-Equipped Cars Worldwide by 2011

Telematics Research Group (TRG) on Wednesday predicted that by 2011, 28 million American cars -- 73 million worldwide -- will feature built-in iPod interfaces. Auxiliary input jacks, which accommodate iPods as well as other types of MP3 players, will be included in 60 million U.S. cars and 150 million worldwide vehicles by 2011. TRG noted that the U.S. auto market currently offers 39 models with iPod adapters or auxiliary input jacks.

Phil Magney, TRG founder and principal analyst, noted in a statement: "The variety of solutions reflects the swiftly changing landscape of the mobile audio market where branded audio solutions, surround sound and mobile device integration are driving market growth."

TRG also expects Bluetooth to emerge as a commonly installed interface in cars, with the technology available in 8.5 million American cars and 25 million worldwide cars by 2011.

TRG will be discussing its research in a panel discussion to be held during next month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The company will also host a panel discussion on Jan. 4 at the Consumer Telematics Seminar in Las Vegas. More information is available on the TRG Web site.
