Apple iPod Radio Remote

At a Glance
  • Apple iPod Radio Remote

There are other FM tuners available for other iPods, including DLO's mini fm (for the mini only) and Griffin Technology's iFM (models available for all dockable iPods). The Apple product, though, is the first to directly integrate the tuner's controls into the iPod's interface. The end result is an FM tuner that works very well, and yet adds almost no bulk to the wonderful compactness of today's iPods.--Rob Griffiths
