Portable computing devices like the iPhone and iPod Touch from Apple are great for many reasons, but ultimately, their strength lies in their portability. And if you’re like me and spend lots of time in the car listening to music and getting lost on the way to far away destinations, accessory-maker Kensington revealed a new line of iPhone accessories built for the on-the-go user.

These new “productivity enhancers” include a GPS car kit, two different car mounts to be strategically placed on a windshield, vent, or dashboard, a car mount with quick release capabilities, an anti-glare screen, two AUX audio cables, and a 2-in-1 car charger with audio cable.

The GPS car kit (ranging from $29-$49.99 dependent on the model) is compatible with the iPhone/iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch (without a case), amplifies the sound level of your device beyond its previous capability (without extra battery drainage), and works with any car power outlet.


Thankfully Kensington threw together this video describing just why their car mount deserves your money.

Anti-Glare Screen Protector- This bad boy, compatible with the iPhone 3G and 3GS sells for $9.99 and includes two anti-glare screen protectors and a cleaning cloth. Anyone with a touch-based device needs a screen protector for it. From my time working at GameStop I can’t even begin to relate to you how many devices had their screens destroyed because of a lack of protector.

Glare? Yeah right

AUX Audio Cable ($9.99)- Why do you need this? Well, it’s pretty simple. You like your music and singing along to “Life is a Highway” is just too irresistible to pass up. You plug in your iPod or other .mp3 device and the tunes stream through your stereo. What could be better!?

Music...it's coming out of my car stereo!

Noise-Reducing AUX Audio Cable ($19.99)- See above, but add “it kills the background hum, and is $10 more.

Noise-reduction model

2-in-1 Car Charger and AUX Audio Cable ($39.99)- This combo pack is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. You get an iPod charger and the AUX cable, bundled together. I haaaate when my iPod dies mid-long drive, and still I don’t have one of these. Don’t be like me.

The ultimate packageFor more information, including where to buy these hot items, head on over to the Kensington official Web site.
