That's a chunky FM transmitter, we thought, until we realised it was a nano's posterior the new Gear4 AirZone had latched itself onto, not a full-blown iPod.

Suitably impressed by its size, we also noted it has a teensy digital display to indicate the frequency it's broadcasting on as it pipes nano's tunes through to your head unit via the magic of radio waves.

Nestled along its edges are the four pre-set buttons for skipping frequencies when the airwaves get crowded. And no need for batteries - it draws all the 'leccy it needs direct from its iPod chum.

Although designed for a snug nano fit, it'll turn its hand to any iPod including the iPhone, if you turn the phone bit off. But then you do that anyway in the car - don't you?
