What is unknown is whether or not the iPhone will "appear" like an iPod when docked. This might get a little tricky depending on it's file structure, but it's certainly possible.
I seriously doubt iPhone apps will be displayable on a iPod compatible headunit, as no knowledge about the iPhone was available when the headunit was designed.
From the headunit's perspective with the example above, you could have a Zune plugged in and it wouldn't know the difference. You're fine.i have a dvd player in my car, that has a plug for headphone jacks (where you plug in your ipod) when you plug in an ipod its just a blue screen, and you ahve to scroll through your ipod to play songs. i hope the iPhone is the same way, if it wont hook up to my car ill be so pissed. but theres really not a doubt in my mind, im almost certain the iPhone will plug in just like the ipod
To my understanding, there shouldn't be any difference with the dock connector pinout. I'd give it about 99% certainty. But the company you should ask is Pioneer. Apple can't vouch for another company's implementation.I have a Pioneer that has an Ipod adapter as well, I like the idea of seeing the menu on the radio, as well as charging the iPhone at the same time.
I don't want to "Brick" my phone either, but my understanding is that the phone is designed to be "backward compatible" with existing Ipod docking units.
Should this include Ipod stereo adapters? You can be sure I'll ASK APPLE before plugging it in!
