DLO debuts TransPod for iPod shuffle

imageDigital Lifestyle Outfitters today announced the TransPod for iPod shuffle, an all-in-one car solution that lets you transmit, charge and display your iPod shuffle.

Like the company’s larger TransPods for full-size iPods, the TransPod for iPod shuffle broadcasts music to any FM radio frequency from 87.9 to 107.9. It features four programable presets, a line-out for use with a cassette adapter or auxiliary car stereo input, and a USB connection that allows the TransPod to interface with other iPods and audio devices like the Sony PSP.
“The DLO TransPod for iPod shuffle is the only car accessory shuffle owners will ever need,” says DLO. “It lets them enjoy their entire music library on the road by broadcasting the iPod shuffle’s music through a car’s FM stereo. The DLO TransPod for iPod shuffle also charges the iPod shuffle while cradling it in an adjustable, easy to position dock that attaches to any standard 12V cigarette lighter.”

The DLO TransPod for iPod shuffle is available now at Best Buy stores nationwide for $59.99.

Bought it today at Best Buy, and I love it.  It performs exactly as expected.  The price, however, was $69.99.

I’m hoping that you guys can get a review of this product up soon as I’m more interested in the line out functionality compared to the FM trasmitting ability.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this is the first product to offer line out audio for the Shuffle and I’m suprised that you guys just glossed over that without any more mention of it.

What I’m very suprised about is if it’s possible to extract line out audio from the USB port, why didn’t Apple include it in their (useless as is) Shuffle dock?  For $30 I wouldn’t buy a dock for my Shuffle, but if it included a line out, I would.  And I’m definitely not paying $60 for line out, but I’m glad to see it’s possible.
