We just purchased a new vehicle and we started thinking about the future adventures we'd have in it. It's a 2010 Mazda 5, and somehow having USB ports on the dash wasn't a requirement for me. Enter the Black & Decker imobile Personal Electronics Charger.
Its a second generation 8Gb iPod touch. There isn't much point in me raving about what it can't do or can do, thats been discussed ad nauseam. What I will say is that I purchased this device because I was going to use it as another controller for the Mi Casa Verde Vera home controller for controlling my Z-Wave devices.
I finally bought an iPod touch because the opportunity to pick up a brand new 2nd Generation iPod dropped in my lap. $100 seemed like a steal at the time. What helped fuel my decision to purchase the iPod was that the forums for my Vera by Mi Casa Verde was sprinkled with praise about the sleek interface. This was to be my Home Automation controller extender.
