Now that you have an iPod that is fully loaded with your prized music you can take it with you where ever you go. That is the beauty of an iPod small and very potable. With an iPod you can listen to your tunes while working out at the gym, working in the yard, or taking a walk.
How about listening to your iPod in the car? Listening to your iPod while driving using a head set can lead to a dangerous situation. With your prized song cranked up you will not be able to hear anything around you.
Are there iPod car accessories that will allow you to safely listen to your tunes in your car? Yes there are, two such iPod car accessories are the car mount and the FM transmitter and car dock.
An iPod car mount is an adjustable iPod holder that firmly attaches to the louvers of the vents located on the dashboard. This holder is easily removed which allows for the user to reposition the device. In addition, because of the mobility that this device offers, this iPod car accessory can be transferred to other vehicles. Also, because the device is attached to the vent, there is no need for installation tools or damage to be done to the interior of the vehicle.
In addition to being easy to use, minimize the distraction element for the driver. The iPod car mount will securely hold the iPod and prevent the device from falling. Also, the iPod display will be close to eye level which will aid the user in viewing the screen.
Some of the new high end cars now offer a built in car dock for your iPod. The car dock is integrated with the car’s audio system so that when an iPod is docked it will play the songs from the iPod. What if I don’t own a car that has an integrated iPod dock? Not a problem, consider the FM transmitter and car dock.
FM Transmitter and Car Dock
The FM transmitter car dock plugs into the car’s cigarette lighter. The car dock has a slot that fits into the iPod’s data connector. While connected the car dock will charge the iPod. The car dock mounts on your dashboard or center console. The car dock holds your iPod securely in place so that the iPod will not slide across the seat when making a sharp turn.
The car dock also connects to the iPod’s headphone jack. The dock contains a mini FM transmitter. The FM transmitter can be adjusted as to which ‘station’ it will broadcast on. Before you head out on your trip, find an empty FM station on your radio and then adjust the FM transmitter to broadcast on that frequency. Tune your car radio to the same frequency and you are now able to listen to your tunes that are stored on your iPod.
What good is having an iPod if you cannot listen to your music whenever and where ever you go? With these iPod car accessories you can safely listen to your music while driving in your car.
