Belkin finally ships TuneCast with iPhone app

updated 11:30 am EST, Mon January 25, 2010

Belkin TuneCast Auto Live uses GPS, Internet

After revealing the add-on months earlier, Belkin today at last began shipping the TuneCast Auto Live. It remains the first FM transmitter to carry its own iPhone app (free, App Store) and uses this to extend the functionality beyond just the simple in-line remote. It can both expand the controls as well as connect to the Internet to provide feedback on the clearest stations. iPhone owners can also use their GPS to automatically set the transmitter based on location.

Independent of the iPhone or iPod, it continues to have a single-button autoscan and draws on a car's 12-volt power port to sustain itself. North American shoppers can buy the hardware today for $80, while Europe receives it in March. Asia and Australia won't see the peripheral until April.

    If you live near any populated city you're gonna deal with crappy sound because you're constantly trying to fight radio stations broadcasting on the same channel. Get yourself an in-line FM Modulator like the overpriced iSimple and fuggetaboutit.
