Scosche Wireless RF Remote for iPod nano

Based largely upon ABT's previously released and reviewed iJet for iPod nano, Scosche's Wireless RF Remote for iPod nano strips out the former product's integrated FM transmitter, preserving its wireless RF remote control (here with 7 buttons and Scosche labelling), plastic black and clear iPod case, and packed-in stereo audio cable. The case now uses a slide-open mechanism rather than ABT's flip-open one; it is still designed to be used with the first-generation (glossy) iPod nano.

Scosche iPod Digital FM Transmitter

Scosche's Digital FM Transmitter allows you to broadcast iPod music to any car's FM radio. You can connect one of two cables - a Dock Connector-ready version or a headphone port version - enabling the transmitter to be used wth any iPod or other 3.5mm audio port-equipped device. When used with the Dock Connector cable, the Transmitter will charge the attached iPod. Unlike the non-Digital version of the transmitter, this one has a LCD screen for easy radio tuning across the entire spectrum.

Scosche SoundKase Cases for iPod Nano

Like the larger-sized SoundKase Cases for iPod Video, Scosche's iPod nano version is available in Camouflage (brown, black, and green nylon), Hawaiian, Neoprene, and Tropics color schemes. Each features integrated, non-detachable rear belt clips, protection for most of the iPod's front, back, and sides, and access holes for the Dock Connector and headphone ports, entire top, and Click Wheel. An adjustable, detachable black elastic arm band is included with each case; clear screen protectors are built-in to their faces.

Scosche FM Transmitter/Charger for All iPods

As contrasted with Scosche's Digital FM Transmitter, the FM Transmitter/Charger lacks a LCD tuning screen, but enables you to broadcast iPod audio to a select number of car radio stations (88.1-88.9; 107.1-107.9) by toggling a switch on the unit's bottom. It comes with two cables - one a Dock Connector for most iPods, capable of playing music and charging, the other a headphone port plug for all other devices, not capable of charging.
