The perfect way to charge and control your iPod or iPhone. Griffin's AutoPilot technology gives you back the tactile feedback of a button press as you play/pause and scan forward/backward with one fingertip, and you need never take your eyes off the road. A three-color light ring indicates charge status, while a built-in line-out port and included auxiliary audio cable connect your iPod to your car stereo's AUX-In audio port. With AutoPilot, great sound and control are at your fingertips.

Lately I have been using a GPS app (MotionX Drive) with the iPhone which is a real battery-drainer. The Autopilot's charger stays right on top of it though and is able to charge the iPhone's battery faster than MotionX can drain it. I recently had a two hour drive using MotionX and with iPhone battery starting at about 50%, it took approximately 75 minutes to reach a full charge. Not bad considering it's almost scary how fast MotionX can drain an iPhone battery.
I have not had any issues with sound quality or interference as reported with the previous (iPod only) model. This model being the "updated for iPhone" version, there is obviously no incompatibility message either. Considering the location of my vehicles 12V outlet, I find the iPod controls on the unit to be very convenient and easier to use while driving than my iPhone's touch screen.
At the time of writing this review, I have only owned the unit for two weeks and have no reason to give it any less than a five star rating. It does everything it promises well, so if it holds up over time, it will have saved me the greater expense of installing a bluetooth receiver in my vehicle. Therefore, I have no absolutely no problem with highly recommending this product at this time.
Here's what I like about the product:
+ One plug that both charges the iPhone and outputs music to car's AUX jack...very convenient.
+ Having the option to control basic music functions on the AutoPilots face OR ability to directly use the iPhone interface if you wish (while car is stopped of course!)
+ Great sound...note: I'm no audiophile, but I think I'm noticing enhanced sound over simply using a 3.5mm aux cable from my phone. No GSM interference, balanced highs and lows, and louder!
+ Charge indicator on AutoPilots face is simple, attractive, and handy.
+ Great functionality: Pauses phone when car turns off, minimal lag when using controls.
+ Affordable...especially on Amazon :)
- AUX cable included could be a bit longer, for those users whose cig lighters and car aux input are not right next to each other, and would like to cleanly run the cable.
- When charging, unit blinks an amber color. This could be a distraction to drivers if the AutoPilot is in peripheral vision.
- Quality of materials/construction is acceptable for the price; however, feel of the buttons when pushed reminds you what you paid for it. Just hoping its durable :)
If you're looking for an affordable solution for your iPhone/iPod car experience, and your car has an AUX jack...look no further. You won't be disappointed in the 2010 Griffin AutoPilot!
PS couple this product with a ProClip mount that is custom for your car, and you've got a pretty slick setup at a price you can't beat.
Edit: Behold the power of the Google! Apparently you can buy the type of filter I was trying to describe above for about $10. It's called a Ground Loop Noise Filter. I'm going to buy one and see what happens. I'm changing my review from 2 stars to 4 as I like everything about the Griffin AutoPilot except for this one - apparently fixable - flaw.
