Griffin Technology (http://www.griffintechnology.com) has announced the latest versions of their iTrip Auto and WindowSeat automobile solutions. Each has been updated for handsfree smartphone support, and universal compatibility for a wide array of devices.
The US$59.99 iTrip FM transmitter technology has been brought together with an handsfree microphone, so users can talk on their mobile phone without taking their attention off the road. It gets its power from the car’s 12-volt accessory socket, and includes a USB port for charging a mobile device with its own charging cable.
The $39.99 WindowSeat mounts an iPod touch, iPhone, BlackBerry, or other mobile device at eye level on the car’s windshield or dashboard, putting street maps, directions, and more safely in view and within reach. The adjustable mounting bracket holds the device securely, and a thumb release allows quick removal upon arrival at the destination.
WindowSeat HandsFree comes packaged with a handsfree microphone for phone calls and recording, and an auxiliary audio cable for a connection to the car stereo’s AUX-in jack. Griffin also offers the $29.99 WindowSeat, the same windshield and dashboard mount without the handfree microphone.
