New model of NewerTech's popular RoadTrip!™ FM transmitter offers choice in FM Stereo broadcast frequency

Sep 21, 2004 | Woodstock, IL


Newer Technology (NewerTech) and Other World Computing (OWC) today announced a second model of the popular NewerTech RoadTrip!™ FM transmitter. The new 'RoadTrip!' model allows users of Apple Computer's iPod and other digital music players to listen to their favorite audio files through a car stereo system using the 87.7 FM radio frequency.

The original 'RoadTrip!' model broadcasts using the 107.7 FM frequency. Both are available at for $19.99.

"Offering a second model of the 'RoadTrip!' transmitter is a way for us to give customer's a choice when it comes to where they'll be tuning their FM dial." said Larry O'Connor, president of OWC. "We've had no problems with the 107.7 FM frequency reported, so offering an 87.7 FM choice simply allows another option for our customers when choosing the very best car adapter for the Apple iPod or other audio source device."

Aside from its broadcast frequency, the new 'RoadTrip!' model is exactly the same as the original. It connects to a vehicle's 12-volt cigarette lighter and has a 3.5-millimeter stereo jack that is compatible with all four generations of iPods, the iPod mini and any other device outputting audio with a standard analog mini-jack (headphone jack).

"The 'RoadTrip!' is already receiving rave reviews and positive customer feedback, especially from those who've used similar devices that didn't get the job done," O'Connor said. "It's satisfying our customers not only because offers the best sound quality and audio stability in its class, but also because it does so for an unbeatable price. You've really got to hear it to believe it, but this product works better and sounds better than products costing two- to even five-times what our 'RoadTrip!' costs."
