The Alpine iDA-X305S Digital Media Receiver is Alpine's first in-vehicle unit to offer control of  both iPods and Pandora Internet Radio Support for iPhones with the latest in wireless technology.  IPhone and iPod users connect via the USB socket and the receiver plays selected stations from Pandora or music from the iPod.

The Alpine iDA-X305S has a 2.2 inch face plate screen.  The unit also includes tacking media, station changers, and will bookmark songs to access later.  IPhone is a must and the user must be traveling in the coverage of a 3G network in order to connect to Pandora Internet Radio Support.
