Apr 28, 2005 | Woodstock, IL


The new RoadTrip!+ being offered by Other World Computing (OWC) and NewerTechnology, Inc. allows consumers to take their tunes on the road and charge their iPod at the same time.

For $27.95, the RoadTrip!+ provides clean, dynamic audio to a user’s FM stereo while also charging the iPod’s internal battery. It is compatible with Third and Fourth Generation, photo and mini versions of Apple Computer’s iPod.

Users simply hook the RoadTrip!+ to the 12-volt power source in their car, plug the dock connector into their iPod, tune their radio to 87.9MHz and enjoy.

“I personally use one and love it. It’s just like listening to the radio, except it’s my music that’s playing,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC. “I used to burn CDs to listen to my tunes on the road. Not since I starting using the RoadTrip!, Now I’ve got it all at my fingertips right from my iPod!”

NewerTech and OWC have paid particular attention to ensuring the RoadTrip! product line allows you to hear your music as though you are listening to your favorite FM station. It was dissatisfaction experienced with other FM transmitter products, some costing as much as five times more, that resulted in OWC and NewerTech developing the RoadTrip! line.

“You just can’t beat it – this economical solution lets you plug and play your iPod to listen to tunes and keep it charged up on the road,” O’Connor said. “You enjoy tunes from your iPod while you iPod gets a charge.”

The RoadTrip!+ combination FM transmitter and iPod charger is immediately available at The original RoadTrip! FM transmitter only models also remain available for $14.99.
