MultiMediaLinQ Interface

VML (MultiMediaLinQ) is a beautifully engineered high end device with spectacular clear, impressive natural, absolutely free of distortion audio.

Simply connect iPod/iPhone/iPod touch through USB port on the VML and get full integration through your factory radio/navigation screen.

iPod integration includes playlist and song browsing for 2nd, 3rd and 4th Gen navigation systems and expanded playlist, artist and album browsing for 5th Gen navigation systems. Expanded 26 character display will come up on your navigation screen for even more convenient use. For cars not equipment with navigation, text display will come up on your radio LCD. VML allows you to utilize factory radio controls to control iPod and access your music library conveniently and text display makes it the best solution for iPod integration.

Also with VML you are able to plug in virtually any mass storage device to it, integrating your music library into the car the way you want it and reproducing it with inspirational digital sound. It may be a flash drive, built-in HDD and/or portable HDD and etc. We have created an interface that will serve you as Multimedia audio device, making your dreams of playing your music library in its purest form in the car come true.

With USB port available on the VML you can listen your music library from your iPod on Monday, your cell phone on Tuesday, SD card on Wednesday, flash drive on Thursday, any other MP3 media device on Friday, use built-in HDD with all of your music in one place for your Saturday drive, or exceed all of your expectations with all of your media devices in one day on Sunday!

The VML provides direct plug-and-play installation for most Toyota and Lexus vehicles 2001 and newer, and it's compatible in navigation system equipped vehicles as well as those without one. Our unique technology doesn't affect factory-installed components such as 6-disc CD changer, CD/DVD changer or satellite radio. When you connect VML to the audio system, your vehicle recognizes it as an additional OEM CD changer, MD changer or CD-MP3 changer. And since the VML system utilizes the factory audio system connectors, it installs easily without compromising your vehicle's warranty.
