Our take on the Monster Cable iCarPlay Wireless 1000 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Monster iCarPlay Wireless 1000 lets you play music from your iPod or iPhone through any car radio. It transmits songs from your docking iPod on an FM frequency for playback.
The system's power adapter plugs into your car's 12-volt cigarette lighter, keeping your player charged while you listen. And the adapter's connected the iCarPlay 1000 through a USB plug. Detach the cord, and you can use the adapter's open USB terminal to plug in and charge a USB-compatible device, such as a cell phone or PDA.
A handy auto-scan function quickly finds the clearest frequency to use, and you can select up to three presets as well. In-line controls let you choose the frequency at the touch of a button, Advanced audio circuitry minimizes cell phone interference so your music sounds clearer.
