Belkin TuneBase FM and Direct Hands-Free Car iPhone Adapters

Lets You Answer Your Calls Hands-Free on Your iPhone and Play Music in the Car, While it Charges

Belkin’s new TuneBase FM and TuneBase Direct allow you to pick up a call on your iPhone while in the car, hands-free. The thoughtful design of these two products lets you use them without removing your iPhone or iPod from its case. The TuneBase cradle easily repositions your iPhone horizontally to view turn-by-turn directions and videos.

Newer cars include an auxiliary input jack to connect different audio sources to the car’s stereo. Using a 3.5mm cable, TuneBase Direct connects to your car stereo through the auxiliary input, so you can play the music from your iPhone or iPod while in the car. TuneBase Direct also charges your iPod so the battery doesn’t run out while you’re on the road.

TuneBase FM lets you listen to music from your iPhone or iPod in your car while simultaneously charging it. Its ClearScan feature automatically searches for the clearest FM frequency.

How to Answer Calls in the Car

  1. Listen to music from iPhone in the car
  2. When call comes in, TuneBase FM and TuneBase Direct fade out music
  3. Answer the call by simply pressing a button on the TuneBase
  4. The call’s audio will come through the car stereo
  5. Safely talk using speakerphone feature
