Belkin TuneCast 3
Accessory maker Belkin has launched the TuneCast 3 FM transmitter, used to broadcast audio from any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but specifically from iPods: any generation of mini, nano or shuffle is supported, as well as full-sized iPods from the third generation onwards. The TuneCast runs on frequencies between 88.1 and 107.9MHz, and is powered by either removable batteries or a car adapter, rather than the player's own supply. The currently-selected frequency is displayed on an OLED screen. Belkin is selling the transmitter for $50.
