Monster intros new chargers, transmitters for iPod + iPhone


Monster has announced its new line of in-car FM transmitters, chargers, and other accessories for the iPod and iPhone. Previously discovered in stores and covered on iLounge, both the iCarPlay Wireless 1000 and iCarPlay Wireless 800 are iPod- and iPhone-certified. The 1000 is powered via USB, allowing it to be used both in the car and in the home or office, and also includes AutoScan 3D automatic station finding for $100. The iCarCharger 1000 is a dock-connecting car charger that offers integrated playback controls on the charging bulb and an AUX-output cable with built-in cord management. Compatible with both iPod and iPhone, it sells for $50. The company has also introduced the iCarPlay Cassette 800 tape adapter, which sells for $20, and the iCable 800 and 1000 mini-jack cables, designed to work with car auxiliary input jacks. The cables come in lengths of 3- and 7-feet and sell for $15 and $30, respectively. Finally, the iSplitter 800 is a two-way headphone jack splitter offering individual volume and mute controls. It sells for $20. All of Monster’s new accessories are available now.

the iCarharger1000 looks pretty good for some users, but if your car is like mine and has the Aux input and a charger outlet both in the center console, then having physical control buttons on the charging bulb will be inconvenient.  Actually in most cars reaching for the buttons on the charging bulb might be inconvenient.  Best option I have found is Kensington’s LiquidAux which works pretty nicely save for a few nuisances.  Still waiting on the perfect in car solution!
