XtremeMac InCharge FM
Accessory maker XtremeMac has announced its third FM transmitter, the InCharge FM. Designed for cars, the device (not pictured) plugs into standard 12V outlets, and can thus power both itself and any iPods that rely on Apple's standard dock connector. Transmission is said to be "near CD quality," but in case of interference, a toggle control lets users revert from stereo to mono. Users can also set multiple frequency presets, and check their dial position through a built-in display.
To make iPods easier to control, the transmitter also has a combination play, pause and track-skipping button. The InCharge FM is priced at $70; it is not currently available, but pre-orders should begin within the next few days.
