Trinity debuts cupholder-friendly iPod transmitter

iPod Cupholder Transmitter

Trinity this morning launched its DS-CHFMT car FM transmitter for iPods. Fitting only in car cupholders, the combination dock and tuner provides a stable base for the iPod without obscuring the radio or other controls on the car's central column. Audio from the digital player is broadcast through a user-specified FM channel while the holder attaches to the car's 12-volt power port to keep any dockable iPod fully charged. A 3.5mm minijack will also stream music from generic music players.

The new design further helps drivers by surmounting some of the audio quality problems that plague most FM adapters, Trinity says. A new PLL chipset actively monitors treble in the initial music source and adapts it to the sometimes distorted FM output. Available in black or white, Trinity's audio adapter ships now from Japan for $55.
