Hands on with Griffin Navigate and iPhone amp

updated 01:25 am EST, Fri January 9, 2009

Griffin CES

Electronista got a first-hand look at several new Griffin accessories featured at CES and Macworld, including the Navigate controller and upcoming IFM app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The Navigate controller features an integrated FM tuner and a white-on-black LCD screen. The track information was easy to view but subtle, while the control buttons allowed easy browsing through the songs, playlists or FM channels.

The company also previewed its IFM app, a companion for the Navigate that will available sometime in the spring. A list of radio stations is available for a variety of cities, in an easy-to-use interface that worked well even as a pre-release beta. When a data network or Wi-Fi is available, the app provides the album artwork for the current song.

Customers will be able to download IFM for free, and the final version will also include a buy-it-now option to automatically purchase songs from iTunes.
