Monster has been around for a long time and is one of those companies that takes a lot of heat for some of its products. Monster Cables are really expensive and most consider them to be no better than plain cables you get at the local discount store. Monster does have lots of other gear though and some of it is undeniably cool.
One of those cool new offerings from the firm is the iMotion CarPlay 3000 that CNET spent some time with .This thing is a DC adapter for your car that will power your iPod or iPhone and connect it to your car audio system via an aux input.
Once plugged in you can skip forward and backward in your playlist by using hand motions rather than taking your eyes off the road. The device won’t work with all cars though from what I can see. My aux input is a long way from my DC outlet and it doesn’t look like the cord would reach to me.Filed Under: Gadgets News
