pic Griffin Technology is now shipping the AirClick Remote, its new wireless remote control solution for the iPod. The AirClick Remote allows users to control their iPod from up to 60 ft. away. Because it uses RF technology (as opposed to IR) users do not have to be in the line of sight for the device to work. The remote has five buttons (play/pause, next track, previous track, volume up, and volume down), a hold switch, and belt clip.

Each AirClick package ships with a remote, a receiver that mounts to the iPod or iPod mini, and a remote cradle and straps for attaching it to a car steering wheel or elsewhere. The AirClick, which is priced at $39.99, works with all Dock Connector iPods, including the iPod mini and the iPod photo.

Steering wheel? This will work great with mac-in-car installs.

There is something a little confusing about this product. If I plug the AirClick to an iPod that is plugged in to a dock and the hi-fi gets the signal from the line-out port, can the Airclick still raise and lower the volume?

Stupid that you can’t use iTrip with AirClick. What were they thinking. Would have been great to just plug iTrip into AirClick and just leave ipod in my bag.

If you have a 1st gen photo the RR2 might be the only choice. See the comments on the AirClick review.

I can speak for the RemoteRemote2… It’s a POS and the customer service is even worse. They won’t answer the phone or return email’s.

The hardware itself is lucky to work from 6 feet away with a clear oine of sight. If you need a clear line of sight you might as well use an IR remote…....

would buy one if it had a fm transmitter built in.  attach the remote to the steering wheel, leave the ipod in the glove compartment or somewhere, tune the radio to the right station and listen.  also, it’d be useful for home listening, put ipod near a fm receiver, then use the remote.  otherwise, it’s a just a nice product, but not one I’m going to be buying.
