Philips Transdock


Philips TransDock for Apple iPods

Compatible with all new iPod models, the in-car solutions enable users to enjoy their iPod content through their car stereo systems. The TransDock and TransDock micro also feature the new IntelliTune frequency-scanning technology. With the click of a button, IntelliTune automatically scans for the clearest FM frequencies on which to broadcast iPod playback. Once locked-in to a clear frequency, the user is instructed, via the unit's display screen, to tune their radio to the corresponding station.


AV-Out port on the Philips TransDock

The distinctive, refined design of the new TransDock was created to complement the sleekness of the newer iPod models. Its flexible and detachable charging arm ensures that the transmitter will fit seamlessly into most car interiors. The TransDock not only allows users to broadcast iPod music through the FM stereo, but also includes an AV-Out port that enables users to enjoy their iPod video content through most in-car video systems (with appropriate AV cable). Additionally, the TransDock includes an Aux-In port that enables users to transmit other audio devices via the TransDock. The TransDock securely cradles and charges the iPod, and gives users full control of volume settings directly from the car's stereo console. For iPod touch users who prefer a horizontal view, the TransDock rotates for both horizontal and vertical orientation. A support bracket is included that keeps the iPod touch secure while the TransDock is rotated.

 "We are pleased to bring these products to Europe and beyond. The ability to view video content in the car, combined with the smart features offered by the entire TransDock range will change the way travelers view entertainment on the road," said Henk de Jong, Senior Vice-President Peripherals and Accessories at Philips Consumer Lifestyle.


Philips TransDock micro

Compact in design and ideal for travelers, the TransDock micro features a unique, dial-based interface enabling easy, one-handed operation. Using the dial, users can simply and intuitively adjust the TransDock micro settings, as well as tune the frequency. A quick push of the center dial activates the IntelliTune feature for instant frequency scanning. Like all Philips transmitters, the TransDock micro charges the iPod as it transmits, ensuring that users arrive at their destination fully charged. The TransDock micro is available immediately from select retailers worldwide.

Philips Transcast FM


Philips TransCast FM

Philips is also offering the universal FM transmitter, the TransCast FM which enables users to broadcast music from virtually any MP3 player - from iPods to Zune to Philips GoGear over their car stereo system. The TransCast FM connects to the audio device through the player's headphone jack, enabling users continued access to all charging and syncing ports.
