Another innovation that's here to stay is the Apple iPod, which allows you to download music and hear it anywhere you go. The latest iPods are available with up to 160 GB of memory space for music and video, making it possible to maintain an entire music and movie library in the palm of your hand. The integration of iPod technology can be seen in the small "shuffle," or in the more economical Nano's, which are great if you have a small music library that you want to bring with you.

Summing up all of the latest technology in a few pages is nearly impossible to do, as the technology coming from today's audio/video manufacturers surpasses yesterday's technology by a wide margin. With so much new product out there, we hope that we can be helpful with some information for all your audio needs, from entry-level car stereo to the more serious earth-shattering sound systems. We hope that our 2010 Audio/Video Buyer's Guide can help you make the right choice for your custom vehicle.
