Fusion Electronics adapts to new Apple devices

Fusion Electronics announced that it is working on a hardware solution to enable existing customers to use the new iPod Touch, Nano and iPhone 5 with a range of Fusion marine stereos.

The new line of Apple devices, which boast longer, slimmer screens and a compact Lightning dock connector, will be available in stores on Friday.

“The iPhone 5’s new longer form factor and modified dock connector cannot connect inside our existing line of internal docking stereo solutions,” Fusion’s Todd Crocker said in a statement. “Elements of our new external docking solution will include protection of the phone against water ingress, charging and integration of the Apple music library through Fusion’s intuitive iPod interface.”
