The Fusion CA-IP1500 is the first (that we know of) car stereo to have its own ipod dock built right into the unit itself.  The faceplate on the Fusion folds down to reveal a slot where the iPod slides in.  The stereo then controls the iPod with scrolling menus like you would expect.



The unit works with just about every iPod, but no word of iPhone.  We would assume the iPhone is included as the iPod touch is in the list.  The question then remains if there is a bluetooth option for phone calls


The Fusion CA-IP1500 is around $300 and will need to be shipped from overseas.  Hopefully Alpine, Pioneer or one of the other domestically sold car stereo manufacturers would use this idea in their next revision of products.
