Can send audio using AUX or FM transmitter
Navigation software maker NNG, which makes iGo My Way, has launched its first hardware product, the iGo Primo Car Dock, which is compatible with all current models of the iPhone (3G, 4, 4S). The mount incorporates its own microphone and can send audio to an automobile's audio system via direct wire connection to the AUX port or through a built-in FM transmitter. A companion application (available separately) provides voice navigation.
The unit can charge the iPhone via a charging cord connected to the lighter outlet, and the mount can be attached to either the windshield or dashboard in a landscape or portrait orientation. When connected to the car's audio system, volume can be controlled by the radio volume knob, and calls can be made either using Voice Control (on the iPhone 3GS and 4) or Siri (iPhone 4S).
The iGo My Way app has recently been updated with full iPhone 4S and iOS 5 support, customizable menu structures, a "tunnel view" mode, and a "frame" for the app when used on the iPad. The car mount is now available as an in-app purchase from within the app or directly from NNG, and sells for €70 (around $90). The companion iGo My Way app is available for various regions, with the North American version selling for $40.
