Newer Technology (NewerTech) and Other World Computing (OWC) today announced a new 87.9 FM model of the popular NewerTech RoadTrip!™ FM transmitter. The RoadTrip! allows users of Apple Computer’s iPod and other digital music players to listen to their favorite audio files through a car stereo.

The 87.9 FM RoadTrip! is immediately available at along with the original 107.7 FM model, both for the new, lower price of $14.99.

“87.9 FM is a limited use frequency reserved for educational institutions, which broadcast at a very low output wattage, and our 87.9 Megahertz (MHz) RoadTrip! model easily provides crystal clear sound within a vehicle tuned to 87.9 FM no matter where in the U.S. your road trips may take you,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC. “Our RoadTrip! transmitters have been very popular, and we’re pleased to introduce this new model that has less competition on the airwaves and is even more affordable than before.”

Both RoadTrip! models connect to a vehicle’s 12-volt cigarette lighter and have a 3.5-millimeter stereo jack that is compatible with all four generations of iPods, the iPod mini, iPod Shuffle and any other device outputting audio with a standard analog mini-jack (headphone jack).

“As customers can hear in our online audio comparison sample, the RoadTrip! transmitter offers a better, more dynamic sound with better audio frequency range than its competitors,” O’Connor said. “With its unbeatable price and our 30-day money back guarantee, there’s absolutely nothing to lose and a whole lot of freedom and good times to gain.”
