Belkin TuneCast Auto Actually Compatible with iPhone 3G

by Mark R

For those of you who have purchased that new 3G iPhone, you may have discovered that some of the original iPhone and iPod accessories are not compatible with it. You might be frustrated at having to buy new 3G accessories, but at least the lines will be shorter when you go back to the Mac store.

Fortunately, Belkin has come to the rescue with the TuneCast Auto for the iPhone and iPod, which, as it happens, is completely compatible for the iPhone 3G. The TuneCast Auto works by attaching it to the line out for car stereo inputs or a cassette adapter.

It allows the user to transmit audio wirelessly on multiple FM stations from 88.1 to 107.9 MHz. So for those of you who enjoy music off of the iPod and iPhone, but don’t have a docking platform on their car stereo, this product is for you.

The Belkin TuneCast Auto is also able to cut the through normal static with its ClearScan feature that finds the best FM frequency available. Other features of the TuneCast Auto include a PRO setting which optimizes audio and boosts volume. It also has two programmable preset buttons, a high-contrast backlit display, and an in-car charger.

You should be able to purchase the TuneCast Audio for about $79.99 off of the Belkin website.

This is not 100% compatible with the 3g. It does work although a message comes on immediately after plugging in, warning that it is not compatible and asks if you would like to switch to airplane mode. While everything SEEMS to work just fine, some calls have gone straight to voice mail while running ipod, gps, at the same time. Not sure if it’s due to belkin or if it’s a glitch within 2.0.1 firmware.
