Belkin debuts TuneBase for iPod touch, 6G

Belkin TuneBase FM 2007

Belkin today updated its iPod peripherals with a major revamp of its TuneBase FM transmitter. The new version now sports the company's ClearScan technology and will automatically find the clearest station to use for beaming its music to a car stereo. This change also replaces the button-only front face with a large LCD that identifies the current station and indicates whether the new Pro mode is turned on to boost audio quality and volume. The new model is also the first transmitter from Belkin to specifically support the iPod touch as well as the latest generations of the iPod classic and iPod nano, and charges all models over a car's 12-volt port.

Support for earlier iPods extends as far back as the fourth-generation iPod and the initial iPod mini, with multiple cradles bundled in the box to snugly fit each model to the adjustable neck. Belkin intends to ship the latest TuneBase FM to the Americas in mid-October for $90 and will deliver the device to Asia, Australia, and Europe by late fall.

    I clicked on this headline thinking that it was about Belkin abandoning plans to release these devices. Nice choice of the word "Drop"!
