The Drive+Play From Harmon/Kardon
The Drive+Play from Harman/Kardon is the most convienient iPod accesory I’ve seen in a while. Consisting of three parts, it makes listening to your favorite songs while driving a breeze. The first piece slightly resembles a joystick, but it actually has a clickwheel-like control on the top which allows you to control your iPod without ever having to touch it. Just place it anywhere in your car that’s easy for you to get to. The next piece of the Drive+Play is a small, 5 line LCD that you can place anywhere on your dash, which allows you to see what song is playing, or what menu screen you’re at. The last piece is what you might consider the “brains” of the whole operation. It has a connecting port for your iPod, and serves as an information processor. Inside, there’s a wireless FM modulator with five set frequencies and you even have the ability to add one in if you’d like. A 3.5mm output jack allows you to connect the Drive+Play to any vehicle with an auxiliary input, and there’s even and input jack if you ever have the need to connect any other audio signals into your car’s audio system. It even features automatic shut-off and will charge your iPod when docked. Harman/Kardon’s Drive+Play hits stores in September and is expeced to retail for around $200.
