TuneLink™ Auto From New Potato Wins 2011 About.com Reader's Choice Award

WILMINGTON, NC--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - New Potato announced today that TuneLink Auto has won the 2011 iPhone/iPod About.com Readers' Choice Award for Best FM Transmitter.

About.com's 2011 Readers' Choice Awards showcased the best products, features and services in multiple categories, from technology to hobbies to parenting. Nominations were received by readers of one of the biggest networks on the web for their favorite iPhone/iPod accessories and apps. TuneLink Auto, the latest unique and innovative in-car audio solution for iOS devices including the new iPad 2, quickly rose through the ranks as a finalist to receive over 54% of the vote. Supported by its enthusiastic user base, TuneLink Auto dominated the competition to earn its place as the best FM transmitter in 2011, even though it is so much more.

TuneLink Auto allows users to experience their music through their car speakers without the hassle of wired connections while providing an all-in-one car audio experience. Incorporating a best-of-class Bluetooth transceiver, FM transmitter, direct audio output, and fast-charge isolated USB charging port, TuneLink Auto brings welcome innovation and performance to both the Apple and Android accessory markets.

TuneLink Auto is another pioneering [app]cessory™ from New Potato and is controlled by a free application that can be downloaded from the App Store or Android market. TuneLink is available in two versions, one tailored for the iPhone/iPad/iPod and another tailored for Android-based devices, the latter being the first car audio accessory designed specifically for the Android platform.

Going beyond excellent audio performance, TuneLink Auto shakes up the genre by introducing original and exclusive features not found in conventional direct connect docks or cabled FM transmitters. For example the integrated SpeedTune feature uses your GPS to determine and select the best open FM station to transmit on with just two taps. An integrated "Humbuster" feature eliminates the engine noise and audio hum from your music that often can plague other solutions. Advanced Bluetooth features such as Auto-Reconnect, Auto-Play and our exclusive TuneLink Share modes enable the unit to be shared with other Bluetooth devices in the car.

This is the second award received by New Potato for one of its innovative [app]cessories™. LiveRider™, a cycling computer accessory for iPhone and iPod touch received the AppsFire 2010 Award for Best Utility. The TuneLink Auto [app]cessory is available at www.newpotatotech.com and select retail locations worldwide for $99.99.
