Tunewear unveils Tunewave
Tunewear today announced the Tunewave FM complete FM transmitter set designed for Apple's iPod. The Tunewave FM is a complete transmitter set for the iPod with an FM transmitter, a 12V car charger adapter, and a cable for charging via USB as well as syncing. The Fm transmitter lets users play iPod tracks wirelessly on any FM stereo, and a blue LED backlight makes it easy to see when using the device at night or in dark places. The 12V car charger adapter charges the iPod from a 12V cigarette lighter socket, and includes a safety fuse to protect the portable player against power surges. Tunewave FM connects via the iPod dock connector to offer compatibility with the fifth-generation video iPod, iPod nano (first- and second-generation), fourth-generation iPod, iPod with color display, iPod photo, iPod mini, and third-generation iPod. The company notes, however, that the 12V car charger adapter and USB cable are not compatible with third-generation iPods. The Tunewave FM is priced at $50.
