    Touch compatible with other Ipod capable electronics?
    I really like the Ipod Touch, but need to figure out for sure if it will work with some other electronics I have which control the Ipod. I have an Alpine AV head unit in my car, and a Pioneer AV receiver at home, which both have a full speed Ipod connection to control it. Alpine says they can use the Iphone through their connection, so I'm hoping the new Touch will be the same. The Pioneer receiver is supposed to do photos and videos on the current Ipods (I have only done music). So anyone know about software or compatibility issues? Thanks in advance.

    Specs:
    Black Macbook C2D 2GHz 3GB RAM 250GB HD iPhone 4 iPad 3G
    The iPhone and Touch have essentially the same software running them, so if Alpine says that it will work with the iPhone, it should most definitely work with the Touch.

    Unfortunately, we can't know for sure until the Touch actually comes out later this month and people start testing their accessories with it.

    Specs:
    27" iMac 2.7GHz Core i5, iPhone 4S, 3rd gen iPad
    I've seen that the new iPods with video capability will not run video through products made to work with video from previous iPods due to some Apple proprietary chip BS. It's not known if the Touch will have the same problem or not.

    Ok thanks for the quick replies. I might even just wait until the Touch is out and tried, because I really don't want to spend the $400 on it if it won't do what I want it to do. I could save myself $200 and get a classic if thats the case.
