Just last month, we saw that New Potato Technologies delivered their TuneLink Auto Bluetooth in-vehicle streaming device for iOS devices, and have followed up on that act with a version for Android-powered smartphones. Similar to the iDevice model, this one will rely on a Bluetooth transceiver and an FM transmitter when it comes to wireless streaming of audio from an Android device to a vehicle’s sound system. Apart from that, there is also a 3.5mm audio jack that paves the way for a direct connection, not to mention a USB charging port. In order to pair your handset with the TuneLink, you will first need to download a free app from the Android Market, where it also makes the entire interface process cleaner for sorting through tracks and selecting the FM stations for the FM transmitter. With New Potato’s Humbuster noise elimination, it theoretically prevents any engine or electrical noise from interfering with its connection. You can’t get it for Christmas though as it will only be out in mid-January 2011 for $100 thereabouts.
