Car Audio Accessories


Connect your iPhone to the car stereo
In 2007, over 170 car models in the US from 34 domestic and foreign brands offered auxiliary ports (source: Telematics Research Group - 2007). In 2008, nearly all top 10 selling car models in the US will offer auxiliary ports as a standard feature and nearly half of all cars on the road will feature an auxiliary port before the end of 2010. This prevalent feature allows drivers to connect external music players directly to the car stereo to get static-free, high-fidelity sound. Kensington's new LiquidAUX line of car accessories let drivers take full advantage of this audio connection and seamlessly integrate their Apple iPhone, iPod or music-enabled cell phone into their car environment.


Crystal clear stereo audio via the Apple iPhone
The Kensington LiquidAUX line offers pure sound in a clean and simple form that puts control at your fingertips. Each product uses an auxiliary port connection to get the clearest and highest-quality audio signal from an Apple iPhone, iPod or music phone through the car stereo, while avoiding a mess of cords and wires. Also included is a remote control that attaches to the car's steering wheel to let drivers keep their eyes on the road, while still maintaining control over what they're listening to. "With LiquidAUX, music fans now enjoy crystal clear stereo audio with the added safety of a remote for playback controls on their iPhone or iPod. They can even enjoy hands-free calling from their music phone," said Kevin Ngo, Global Product Manager at Kensington.

  • Auxiliary (AUX) Port Connection - simply play tunes from your iPhone, iPod or music phone by connecting directly to the car stereo for clear, crisp fidelity.
  • Remote Control - spend more time looking at the road and less time fumbling with your iPhone, iPod or phone by using the wireless remote that lets you change tracks, pause/play your music and even answer your phone calls.
  • Car Charger - charge your iPhone, iPod or music phone while listening to your tunes.
  • Less Clutter - no more messy cords. The products are designed specifically for vehicles with auxiliary ports in the center console or in-dash.

Apple iPhone audio through the car stereo
"We design all of our products to deliver a Smart Made Simple user experience," said Ngo. "In the car environment, this means keeping your eyes on the road. Not only do our products deliver pure audio from an Apple iPhone or iPod through the car stereo, but we also give consumers the ability to have full playback control of their tunes, all at their fingertips. And music phone owners gain this same experience with the addition of hands-free talking at the touch of a button. Imagine never having to take your phone out of your pocket or purse!"
