For those who would like to install their iPod / iPhone in the car but do not have the possibility to implement it in an ad hoc system, the most handy alternative is certainly an FM transmitter, perhaps not the technologically best solution but one of the most accessible to all.
USBFever offers two new FM transmitters compatible with both iPod and iPhone: the iPhone / iPod FM Transmitter and the iPhone / iPhone 3G FM Transmitter with speakerphone.
The iPhone / iPhone 3G FM Transmitter with Speakerphone ($ 20) connects directly to the cigar lighter socket of the machine and to the audio jack of the device in question; for this reason compatible not only with all iPods and iPhones, but also with all portable devices with a 3.5mm connection.Only in the case of the iPhone, however, it will be possible to take advantage of the integrated hands-free functionality: following a incoming call it will be easy to answer the call through the microphone included in the accessory.
Unlike the iPhone / iPod FM Transmitter ($ 25) does not have hands-free functionality, but connects directly to the dock decreeing compatibility with only iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G, iPod Touch, iPod Nano 3G, iPod Nano 2G, iPod Nano 2G, iPod Mini . Unlike the model indicated above, the Transmitter enhances portability and ergonomics, although it does not connect to the cigar lighter socket but feeds entirely through the accessory to which it is connected.
Both products can be purchased directly from the USBFever online store. Recall that in our country the legislation does not officially allow the use of such devices.
