Pairing of technologies revolutionises the way we listen to music in the car
London, 21st April 2010: Listening to your favourite tunes from the comfort of your car has just got easier today, as leading iPod accessory manufacturer Griffin Technology announces a new app that allows music lovers to control iTrip Auto from their iPhone or iPod touch.
The new pairing combines the latest FM transmitter technologies and superior features that iTrip Auto customers have come to expect, with an app that connects iTrip Auto to iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS 3.0.
All users need to do is connect iTrip Auto to their iPhone or iPod touch and the iTrip Controller app then allows iTrip to broadcast tunes through the car’s stereo speakers, via an open FM frequency on your car’s stereo.
The app’s large, easy to use display and tuning controls allow users to scan for the best stations via a SmartScan button, Griffin’s trademark technology that instantly locates the best available frequency. Three preset options are present and programmable, and a settings screen allows for adjustment of SmartSound EQ and mono/stereo broadcast modes.
Any change made in the app instantly occurs on iTrip Auto, and iTrip Auto adjustments are instantly reflected on the app, making for complete and flawless iTrip hardware and software integration.
“As demand for apps that help people get the most out of what they love to do hits an all time high, it made perfect sense to create an app that combines the power of iTrip Auto with the hugely popular iPhone and iPod touch”, said Paul Griffin, founder and CEO of Griffin Technology. “We’re proud to be bringing a new way of listening to music on the move to our customers.”
Pricing and availability
iTrip Controller app is available as a free download from the iTunes App Store. iTrip Auto is priced at £44.99.
