Transpod for iPod shuffle
. The all-in-one car solution enables Shuffle owners to transmit, charge and display their iPod shuffles in their cars using a single device. Like the version for the iPod and iPod mini, the TransPod for iPod shuffle broadcasts music to any FM radio frequency (between 87.9 to 107.9). It also includes a separate input and output that allows it to interface with other iPods and audio devices. It is available immediately at Best Buy and on the web for $60.
The DLO TransPod for iPod shuffle is the only car accessory shuffle owners will ever need. It lets them enjoy their entire music library on the road by broadcasting the iPod shuffle’s music through a car’s FM stereo. The DLO TransPod for iPod shuffle also charges the iPod shuffle while cradling it in an adjustable, easy to position dock that attaches to any standard 12V cigarette lighter. The DLO TransPod plays on any FM radio station and has 4 assignable presets to save commonly used frequencies.
The TransPod for iPod shuffle has two convenient, yet discreet surface mounted tuning buttons on either side for tuning the FM frequency and storing presets. The TransPod for iPod shuffle also features a line-out for use with a cassette adapter or auxiliary car stereo input. It also offers an auxiliary input that can be used to transmit the audio of any MP3 player or audio device like a portable DVD player. In addition, the USB connection on the TransPod for iPod shuffle can be used to charge USB compatible devices, such as cell phones or gaming systems.
"The TransPod for iPod shuffle is simply one of the smartest most beautiful devices DLO has ever made. It takes all the learning and experience we've accumulated making the original TransPod and re-imagines it for the tiny super-cool iPod shuffle. I now use the TransPod & shuffle combination exclusively in my car – making a new 'mix tape' playlist every week. Both devices are so convenient and small – it's just perfect." said Andrew Green, VP of Marketing & Design at Digital Lifestyle Outfitters.
