Press Release

Nashville, TN — July 27, 2010 — Griffin Technology Inc., maker of ingenious ways to power, play, protect, and connect, today announced the latest versions of their popular iTrip Auto and WindowSeat automobile solutions. Each has been updated for handsfree smartphone support, and universal compatibility for a wide array of devices.

iTrip Auto HandsFree

Griffin’s trend-setting iTrip FM transmitter technology has been brought together with an intuitive handsfree microphone, so users can talk on their mobile phone without taking their attention off the road. iTrip Auto HandsFree gets its power from the car’s 12 volt accessory socket, and includes a USB port for charging a mobile device with its own charging cable. And of course, iTrip Auto HandsFree includes all the features and innovation the iTrip product line is known for, like SmartScan™ easy one-button setup, SmartSound™ audio enhancement, user-customizable presets, and stereo/mono listening modes.

The handsfree control mic clips to a lapel, or attaches to any nonporous surface in the car with an included adhesive pad, and gives users fingertip control to answer calls when they come in. iTrip Auto HandsFree is a perfect in-car solution for a wide variety of devices, including iPod and iPhone, and most MP3 players and smartphones, including those made by Microsoft, Samsung, BlackBerry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Palm, and others.

Key Features:

  • iTrip FM transmitter
  • SmartScan easy one-button setup
  • SmartSound audio enhancement
  • Handsfree control mic
  • USB power plug for USB-rechargeable devices
  • Works through the mobile device’s headphone jack

WindowSeat HandsFree

WindowSeat mounts an iPod touch, iPhone, BlackBerry, or other mobile device at eye level on the car’s windshield or dashboard, putting street maps, directions, and more safely in view and within reach. The easily adjustable mounting bracket holds the device securely—even if the device is in a case—and a thumb release allows quick removal upon arrival at the destination. WindowSeat HandsFree comes packaged with a handsfree microphone for phone calls and recording, and an auxiliary audio cable for a clean, noise-free connection to the car stereo’s AUX-in jack.

Also available is WindowSeat AUX, the same versatile windshield and dashboard mount, without the handsfree microphone.
