Sonnet announces iFreq FM transmitter


Sonnet Technologies has announced the iFreq, a new in-vehicle FM transmitter and charger for the iPod nano. The iFreq consists of a mounting cradle that’s wired to an FM transmitter unit which plugs directly into a car’s cigarette lighter outlet. The $80 product features a backlit LCD display, broadcasts from 88.1 to 107.9, and comes with an adhesive-backed magnetic disk that is attached to the dash to mount and unmount the cradle. Sonnet said the iFreq will begin shipping in third quarter of 2006.

ANOTHER Fm transmitter? All fm transmitters are the same and do not operate better than others. In fact, FM transmitters don’t work well as they say they do. Don’t waste your money on this.

That’s my sentiment as well.  I have the Kensington FM transmitter and for the most part, it does exactly what I want it to do.  I have an hour long commute to/from work and I am a podcast addict (mostly public radio content).  No hi-fi expectations there.  I will occasionally play a tune however it is noticeably deficient in clarity and range but that was known before I purchased it.

Other than to get in on the glut of accessories market for the iPod, this offering only differentiates itself from other by being more expensive.
