Our take on the Eclipse IPC-106

Eclipse's iPC-106 interface adapter makes it easy to integrate an iPod into your mobile audio system. Just install the interface box in an out-of-the-way spot, connect it to the CD changer input on your Eclipse stereo, and hook up your iPod.

Eclipse's iPC-106 interface adapter makes it easy to integrate an iPod into your mobile audio system. Just install the interface box in an out-of-the-way spot, connect it to the CD changer input on your Eclipse stereo, and hook up your iPod.

With the iPC-106 connected to a compatible Eclipse stereo, you can access just about all of the iPod's functions — play/pause, fast forward/rewind, repeat, and random — with the controls on your Eclipse stereo. You'll be able to find the music you want quickly, since album title, artist name, or track information show up on the Eclipse display. The adapter will even charge your iPod while it's connected.

Compatibility Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.

Product Research


Overview: This adapter allows an iPod portable digital music player including the iPod video (5th generation), iPod touch (1st/2nd generation), classic (80/120/160GB) and iPod nano (3rd/4th generation) or iPhone/iPhon3G with a dock connector to be hooked up to and controlled by 2002 or later Eclipse head units that support E-LAN. All the iPod's buttons will be disabled when connected to this adapter and the iPod will be controlled from the receiver.

Note: This adapter will not charge the iPhone3G, iPod touch 2nd generation, or iPod nano 4th generation without the Scosche passPORT (142IFWA). The iPod classic and nano 3rd generation should have the latest version 1.1 or higher installed for compatibility. This version can be downloaded from Apple's website.

Controls: Many 2007 and 2006 Eclipse CD and AVN head units support the iPod controller mode, allowing almost all of the iPod's functions to be operated from the main unit. While connected, the head unit will power the iPod, and charge the iPod's battery. You can perform playlist, album, artist, genre, or song searches. Playback functions include track up/down, fast forward/rewind, track repeat, track random play, and album random play. Display selections include song, album, or artist. If the main unit does not support iPod controller mode, you will have limited control of the iPod, including music advance, repeat play, random play, and text display. On these units, the iPod must be controlled in Changer or SIRIUS mode. The IPC-106 Interface Adapter for iPod is compatible with the following:
