Play Your iPod Over Your Car's FM Radio
Enjoy your iPod music and videos in the car while your iPod is securely mounted and charging in the elegant TransDock. And now with IntelliTune, finding an open FM frequency is easier than ever. With one click, TransDock finds the ideal station for transmitting your iPod over your car's FM radio.
TransDock broadcasts your iPod to an open FM frequency between 88.1 to 107.9. And with IntelliTune technology, you can scan for these open FM frequencies automatically with the simple push of a button.
Multimedia Experience in Your Car
With the new and improved TransDock, broadcasting iPod music is only the beginning. Using the AV-Out port and the appropriate cable (available separately), you can channel iPod video downloads through popular flip-down screens or in-headrest monitors. The AV-Out port can also be used with your cassette adapter or car auxiliary input for supreme audio transmission directly into your car stereo. Plus, with the Aux-In jack, all it takes is a standard mini-to-mini cable (available separately) to transmit the audio from any other MP3 player, laptop, or gaming system over your car stereo.
Plug in and Play TransDock requires no installation and is a great alternative to expensive custom installations. The 8-inch flexible gooseneck support arm allows you to easily position the TransDock, while the dock itself rotates for horizontal positioning--great for the intuitive use of Cover Flow on your iPod touch. TransDock takes mobile entertainment to the next level. So go ahead, take your show on the road!
Compatible with the following iPods: iPod nano 1G, 2G (aluminum), 3G, 4G; iPod touch 1G, 2G; iPod 4G; iPod classic; iPod with video; iPod with color display.

When they were DLO the customer service was far better than the customer service you get with calling Phillips people. I purchased the Transdock 3.0 from a retailer on amazon who sold it as Used - Like new condition. The product lasted literally 2 weeks before the actual transmitter part started to turn on and off. The funny thing was it still charged - it just wouldn't transmit the iPod. I called Customer service and they told me because it was a used product they can't do anything for me despite me showing them the receipt from a reputable retailer.
Ever since they switched to the intellitune technology the transmitters have just gone down hill. The intellitune NEVER gets a correct channel for me. On this specific product it actually gave me the choice of trying to override one of the biggest radio stations in my area. This transmitter has no way of getting past one of the heavy hitting FM stations. I am having to replace my product once every few months ... but the problem (or saving grace) is that the DLO products are the best transmitters around. Unfortunately the tech service, the workmanship, and general care is just crud!
The DLO TransDock boasts about an auto-search function which scans the airwaves to available frequencies to broadcast your music. When I tried using the search, it spent a little while finding one. I then changed my car radio to that station and found that it was already occupied. I tried the auto-search again and it brought me to another occupied frequency. So pretty much, the auto-search didn't work.
I searched through all the frequencies and found one that worked alright. The music was playing but not really crystal clear. If I were to turn up the volume, the crackling in the background caused by the bad signal would be more apparent. When I started driving, it was as if the neighboring frequencies were fighting for broadingcasting power in my car. One moment, my music would be playing and the next, it would just be a jumble of sound. I would get so sick of it that I would just unplug it and set it to a radio station.
The only possible way I can get it into my car jack is by putting just the transmitter sideways and then putting my iPod inside. It's difficult to even get that to work most days.
Overall, I'd say avoid this version of the DLO transmitter unless you have A LOT of space around the car jack you'll be using..because you'll need it.
