Griffin Upgrades TuneFlex for iPod

NASHVILLE, TN - March 15, 2007

Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today announced its TuneFlex AUX is now shipping. TuneFlex AUX is a flexible charging cradle with line-out audio. TuneFlex provides a custom-look, in-car mount that charges the iPod as it plays over the car's stereo.

The updated product line now includes an auxiliary-in cable to accommodate the growing segment of auxiliary input-enabled cars. TuneFlex AUX creates the high quality of direct, line-in sound on a flexible charging cradle for iPod.

TuneFlex AUX

TuneFlex is an elegant and versatile accessory for iPod, designed with newer automobiles in mind. TuneFlex plugs into the car's 12 Volt accessory outlet to power and charge an iPod while holding it at a convenient position in front of the dashboard or console. A light at the base of TuneFlex's adjustable neck shows power status at a glance. Its charging circuitry is even equipped with a replaceable auto fuse to keep the iPod safe from power spikes.

Charging is only half the picture; TuneFlex is equally flexible at getting the music from the iPod to the car stereo. A built-in 1/8" stereo line-out audio jack and included cable enable the user to attach an iPod directly to the car stereo's auxiliary input jack (hence the "aux" in the name). For cars that don't have an aux-in port on the car stereo, TuneFlex has a pass-through dock connector so you can use it in conjunction with Griffin's iTrip FM transmitter.

The flexible TuneFlex AUX is available in two sizes; TuneFlex AUX for iPod nano and TuneFlex AUX for iPod with video.
