monster icarplay wireless 250
New £80 model will play both in the car and at home, can also be used to charge other devices

New from Monster is what's being described as "the world's most innovative, high-performance FM transmitter for iPhone and iPod."

The £80 iCarPlay Wireless 250 allows iPod and iPhones to be connected through any car stereo system, and will simultaneously charge the portable devices.

In addition, the unit can be detached from the car power adapter supplied and, for home use, powered from any USB port or Monster's iSlimCharger or iCharger Travel USB mains units.

You can also then use the car power adapter to charge any device able to be powered from a USB socket, such as 'phones, cameras and PDAs.

More after the break

The iCarPlay Wireless 250 uses new Monster AutoScan 3D technology, scanning the FM band three times to find a frequency to tune into.

In addition the unit is designed to output a line-level signal for clearer transmission, has automatic power output for individual frequencies, and provides three programmable station presets for easy tuning.
