TuneFM for iPod, Nano
today launched its TuneFM for iPod and iPod nano, allowing users to play an iPod through any FM stereo receiver--such as a car stereo. TuneFM plugs into the dock connector of the iPod, and uses the player's LCD display to indicate the FM frequency and memory presets. The device does not require batteries, as it draws power from the iPod. TuneFM offers channel up/down, the ability to scan through multiple FM channels between 88.1-107.9MHz, four programmable memory slots, and a mini USB connector for constant charging while on the road. The TuneFM for iPod nano will ship in North America in January of 2006, while the TuneFM for iPod will ship in March of 2006. Both models are priced at $50.
