Even though the new TuneStick FM Transmitter for iPod comes with DLO’s ingenious steering wheel remote, the device is more that just a car audio gadget.
The TuneStik is the first product to combine a wireless FM transmitter with a powerful RF remote control for iPod playback and control in the car, at home, or anywhere there’s an FM radio. Because of the TuneStik’s 30-pin pass-through dock connector, it can be combined with virtually any iPod accessory–adding an RF remote and/or an FM transmitter to a user’s existing iPod gear. TuneStik is available immediately for USD$59.99.
To set up the TuneStick, you find an available frequency on your FM stereo, and match that frequency on the iPod using the TuneStik’s remote control. TuneStik includes 4 programmable presets, a full 30-pin pass-through connector for charging and synching your iPod, and an RF remote control with a range of approximately 40 feet. For in-car use, the TuneStik comes complete with a steering-wheel cradle for the remote control, so you can navigate your iPod controls while driving.
