Scion, from Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today announced manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the 2006 Scion tC. The 2006 Scion tC sports coupe was the top-rated car in its segment according to the recent J.D. Power survey of initial quality. The tC will begin arriving at Scion dealerships next week.<p>The 2006 Scion sports coupe comes with additional interior standard equipment as well as a new audio upgrade. All tCs will now have a new three-spoke steering wheel with integrated audio controls and a redesigned Pioneer AM/FM/CD audio head unit. Scion is also offering music lovers a new, optional iPod compatible audio upgrade from Pioneer that integrates the world's most popular digital music player with the car's sound system, offering music navigation, power and display.<p>The 2006 tC's new standard audio system features a centrally-located volume control knob and a mini-jack port located in the center console compartment that allows for connectivity to most portable music players. The mini-jack port allows users to listen to their portable music collection through the tC's Pioneer speakers. This new unit still retains key Scion audio system features such as Scion Sound Processing (SSP) where listeners can choose from three pre-set equalizer settings, satellite radio compatibility and a user-customizable welcome screen. <p>Bringing iPod's legendary experience to the car, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit with iPod control is now available as an all-new accessory upgrade for the 2006 Scion tC. The tC is the first car in its class to integrate track, artist and album information from the iPod into a one-line display on the head unit¬Ěs screen. Connectivity is achieved by simply plugging the iPod into a port via a connector cable, providing outstanding sound quality through the car's stereo system and constant power to the iPod. Music is controlled through the head unit and steering wheel buttons. The MSRP for this accessory upgrade is only $260, which includes installation.<p>The tC's exterior remains unchanged with the exception of two new colors. Silver Streak Mica and Indigo Ink Pearl exterior colors will be replaced with Classic Silver Metallic and Nautical Blue. <p>With the additional standard equipment, prices for the 2006 Scion tC increase only $200 on all models, reflecting its great value. The MSRP for the Scion tC will be $16,200 with a manual transmission and $17,000 with an automatic transmission, reflecting a 1.3 and 1.2 percent increase, respectively. <p>(From Toyota's pressroom website)<br>The following are also from Toyota's pressroom website:<p>This one is without the iPod connection accessory:<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v294/anonms/tC1.bmp" BORDER="0"><p>This one is with the iPod connection accessory:<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v294/anonms/tC2.bmp" BORDER="0">

Dont worry Santeno. The only difference between the two photos are the headunits. The ipod jack is in the center compartment.

LEXUS FAN!

That or inside the center console box.

No Quite.. actually BMW, one is just a long ipod dock cord connected to the serial convertor. You can pretty much put it whereever you want.. eg I have mine on my X5 right at the cupholder/ pen holder. The cord is very long at least 1 metre so you can wire to pretty much anywhere.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>anonms</b> &raquo;</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Somewhere not on the center stack, perhaps?<p>BMW puts the iPod stuff in the glove box.<p>I think it might be next to the power outlet (and hidden by the shifter in the picturte).

They said the connector plugs into the glove box.
