TransDock iPod FM transmitters add IntelliTune
(DLO) on Thursday announced an update to their TransDock line of FM transmitters and car chargers for the iPod. The TransDock, TransDock micro and TransDock Classic all now feature the IntelliTune technology. They cost $99.99, $59.99 and $79.99 respectively. The revised models are coming soon.
The TransDock devices now feature IntelliTune, technology that enables the device to scan the FM band for the clearest frequencies to broadcast iPod playback. Once the device has locked in to a clear frequency, the TransDock’s display shows the user what frequency to tune in their vehicle’s radio.
The TransDock provides a rest for your iPod that plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter. It features an AV-out port that lets you output video to your car’s video system (using an AV patch cable). It can rotate 90 degrees to display iPod touch content in landscape mode. An aux-in port lets you connect other devices.
The TransDock micro uses a dial-based interface that you push to activate the IntelliTune feature. It also charges the iPod as it transmits an FM radio signal. And the TransDock Classic is based on DLO’s TransPod, with a backlit LED display and secure cradle.
