First Look: DLO TransDock for iPod Music and Videos in Your Car
Company: Digital Lifestyle Outfitters (DLO)
Model: TransDock (2007)
Compatible: iPod 3G, 4G, 5G, mini, nano, shuffle*
Repeatedly evolved through cosmetic and functional iterations, DLO's latest TransDock (formerly TransPod) car mount, FM transmitter, AV output device and charger offers considerably greater versatility than any of its prior versions. Bundled with user-swappable black and silver accent plates and a redesigned iPod cradle, TransDock now includes an AV-out port to let you view iPod videos on a separate in-car screen, as well as an aux-in port, and a USB port for simultaneous charging of your cell phone. It retains a blue-backlit LCD screen for FM transmitter station tuning, plus three buttons for presets and tuning, and adds a prominent antenna bulge at the top designed to improve FM transmission. As in past versions, TransDock uses adjustable plastic pipe mounts to suspend your nano in your car, and includes inserts for various thicknesses and types of iPods, including both versions of the iPod nano, and the iPod mini.
