This review was originally published in the iLounge Holiday Buyers’ Guide 2005-2006. Please download the Buyers’ Guide for additional photographs. (Please note: this is an update to a review of the previous versions of TransPod, which we’ve reviewed elsewhere on the site.)

If you want to add integrated FM transmission to charging, mounting and a line-out port, TransPod’s a solid option. Using two adjustable plastic pipes, it mounts in your car’s power charger port, then gets tweaked to a hopefully steady position. Good FM, strong line-out and simple tuning make it convenient; but buy locally just in case it’s not right for your car; extra add-on mounts have disappeared from this version’s package.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
