FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The TuneCast Auto’s compatibility with nano and 5G iPod offers flexibility with more iPod models
(Compton, CA) – November 10, 2005 — Belkin Corporation today announces the compatibility of its TuneCast Auto with iPod nano and 5G iPod as well as with iPod 3G, 4G, and photo. The device allows you to listen to the music from your iPod through your car’s FM radio. Unlike other FM transmitters, the TuneCast Auto powers and charges through your car’s cigarette lighter–eliminating the need to drain power from the iPod itself. Its new design and ample features make for an easy, convenient solution to listen to your iPod on the road. The TuneCast Auto will be shipping in North America in late November 2005.
TuneCast Auto for iPod (F8V7101) — $59.99
The TuneCast Auto features two programmable memory slots, which allow you to toggle between two channels. A blue, backlit LCD provides for easy viewing day or night, and a VELCRO tie reduces cable clutter in your car. And, its included dock connector attaches securely to your iPod. By simply plugging the TuneCast Auto into the dock connector on your iPod and your car’s cigarette-lighter outlet, you can enjoy your iPod tunes on the go.
FM Transmitter: Transmits on FM channels 88.1MHz–107.9MHz
