Enhance your knowledge of the DLO Transdock Deluxe with this professional review.
I wanted to do a thorough review of this transmitter, so I figured the best way was to aggregate one I found some time ago. I have had it bookmarked and knew the day would come when I could break it out and share it with you, who is reading this website.
The good: The DLO TransDock Deluxe is one of the most full-featured iPod FM transmitters on the market. Beyond charging and broadcasting your iPod, the TransDock Deluxe includes an AV output, an auxiliary input, a remote control, and a USB charging outlet.
The bad: The DLO TransDock Deluxe is large and not very portable. The elegance and utility of the TransDock Deluxe depends heavily on the location of your car’s power outlet. Video output is limited only to the 5G iPod.
The bottom line: The DLO TransDock Deluxe is one of the best in-car iPod dock and FM transmitters available. If you’re picky about what you plug into your car’s console, however, there are more discreet solutions.
ne of our favorite in-car iPod FM transmitters just got better. The DLO TransDock Deluxe ($129) improves on last year’s TransPod by adding video output, a USB charging port, a remote control, and a more attractive design.
Make no mistake, the DLO TransDock Deluxe is not your typical puny iPod FM transmitter. Instead, the TransDock is an unapologetically big, beautiful in-car iPod dock that comes in four pieces: a dock, a stand, an extender, and a remote control. Once assembled and connected to your car’s cigarette lighter, the TransDock stands out physically and aesthetically from your car’s console. If you’re looking for a modest in-car iPod charger/FM transmitter that can be easily stowed away and taken between cars, turn back now.
We’re thrilled to see that the DLO TransDock Deluxe retains everything we loved about the TransPod (large display, line output, aux input). It ups the ante with some exciting improvements. One of the biggest selling points for the TransDock is the inclusion of an iPod remote control that fastens to your car’s steering wheel.
The TransDock’s remote features seven buttons for controlling music playback, station selection, preset selection, and iPod backlight activation. A Velcro fastener and tiny brace is used to attach the remote to your steering wheel. This same Velcro strap can also be easily undone, allowing the remote to be reoriented for right- or left-hand use.
Overall, we found the TransDock’s remote control very useful, though we would have preferred to have volume control on the remote, rather than station control. Users who aren’t sold on the idea of a remote control can always save some money by opting for the non-Deluxe version of the TransDock.
