Griffin AirClick for iPod

 

This range of gadgets add wireless remote control to your iPod. There are four separate variations which together provide compatibility with most iPods although apparently not the Nano.

 

Pros

Remote suitable for personal use or in the car

Remote uses radio frequencies (not infra red) so line of sight is not required

Buttons include: Play/pause, skip forward, skip back, volume up and volume down

Plugs into headphone socket at top, leaving base connector free for other use

Works very well

 

Cons

Adds to the height of the iPod

Steering wheel strap could have been more flexibly designed to allow optimal positioning on a wide range of steering wheels

Apparently no support for the Ipod Nano

 

 

Price: c £24 inc. VAT

 

Star Rating: 8 Stars  Adds to the usefulness of your iPod
