Metra introduced at CES this month a tablet and smartphone kit that works with single DIN car radios.

The kit also has an aux in jack.
The Metra kit is available in models for for the iPad mini, Samsung tablets, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5.
It is expected to ship February 1.
Metra also announced a new radio replacement dash kit for the Smart Fortwo. The 99-8720B (single DIN) and 95-8720B (double DIN) kits work in Smart Fortwo vehicles from 2011 and up.
