Trinity ships car FM transmitter for iPod

Trinity iPod transmitter

Trinity today launched its DS-CHFMT car FM transmitter for Apple's iPod. The combination dock and tuner fits in most vehicle cup holders, providing a stable base for an 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 also streams music from generic music players, and Trinity claims that the new design helps drivers by surmounting some of the audio quality problems that plague most FM adapters. A new PLL chipset actively monitors treble in the initial music source and adapts to the sometimes distorted FM output, according to Electronista. Available in black or white, Trinity's audio adapter is shipping from Japan for $55.
