The new iPhone 5 went on sale on Friday, but we’ve got a treat for iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 users today: Pioneer, the in-car entertainment experts, have teamed up with the folks behind the Opera web browser to bring us in-car internet!

Some Pioneer touchscreen in-car entertainment systems can already stream internet radio from your phone to your sound system, but with the launch of Pioneer CarBrowser, they just got even smarter. With an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S plugged in, the £1.49 app lets you surf the web in your car – the browser behind it is the useful Opera Mini, which compresses data on the server side, speeding up download times on the go.

Needless to say, Pioneer CarBrowser should only be used if you’re parked or riding shotgun, but it’s a useful extension of your iPhone’s power nonetheless. There’s just one limitation with it right now: the iPhone 5 and its new Lightning port are not supported.

That’s because Lightning does not do video output to other displays: Apple says an adapter is coming, but in the meantime, iPhone 5 owners will have to look on in envy.
