More often than not FM transmitters that pump tunes from your MP3 player to your car’s radio are junk. The local radio stations interfere and if you’re antenna resides at the rear of the vehicle then may God help you.
Technical hurdles aside, New Potato Technologies TuneLink Auto device is looking pretty snazzy. Instead of having to jack the FM transmitter into your iPod (or iPhone or iPad) you connect the two over Bluetooth. The dongle/cigarette adatper then beams the music via FM transmission to the car’s radio. If Bluetooth doesn’t meet your fancy then you can jack directly into the FM transmitter using the 3.5mm headphone jack and charge your iProduct by way of the USB port.
While there is no voice support for the device, the exclusive TuneLink “Share” feature allows multiple users in the same vehicle to share the same TuneLink connection, allowing everyone to participate in sharing their tunes.
An accompanying iPhone app let’s you manage the whole process and it will be free to all, though the device itself costs $99.99.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
