I recently borrowed my dad's car for a 4-hour road trip up to Cape Cod -- yeah, right where that guy in a kayak got chased by a great white shark last week -- and about 5 minutes in I realized he didn't have a jack for my iPhone. Fortunately, I was able to dig up some old CDs from the back seat pocket. Let me tell you, "Liza's Awesome HS Grad Mix" quickly got old. Luckily, for my next trip I was armed with the Gogroove Flexsmart Sp Advanced Car Mount System with New Signal Intensifying FM Transmitter and USB Charging Port.
This nifty device mounts your smartphone or MP3, lets you play your music over FM radio, and keeps you fully charged. It took less than a minute to set up and kept my music streaming for the entire ride. In an effort to make sure no one else in my family has to suffer a 4-hour ride with nothing but "Liza's 2001 hot summer jams," I left it in his car -- Dad is thrilled with what he referred to as an "awesome product!"
If you are already set up for music streaming in the car, make sure to grab the USA Gear Universal Car AC Vent Mount XL with Adjustable Cradle. The Vent Mount allows you to clip your smartphone into place on nearly any car's AC vent. It's great for hands-free calling and multiple viewing angles.
Speaking of hands-free calling, don't miss a chance to get the Gogroove DynaMix High-Performance Retro Red Earbuds with Hands-free Mic for less than $10. These comfortable earbuds offer good sound and a built-in mic for hands-free calling on the road and easy listening once you arrive.
Once you've reached your final destination, you'll need the Gogroove Audiomorph Portable Speaker System with Articulating Design. This handy speaker allows you to bring your music with you. Connect to your device with a standard headphone jack and bring your music to the beach, camping, or barbecue!
Finally, make sure you are fully juiced up with the Revive Series Solar Restore BST with External Backup Battery Pack and Solar Panel. This solar panel allows you to charge on the go with the power of the sun. Leave in direct sunlight -- no sunblock required -- and take it anywhere you need it to charge your phone, tablet, e-reader, or MP3 player without an outlet. I particularly love this product at the beach. Keep your MP3 player or phone charged up so you can listen to music on your new Audiomorph Portable Speaker all day!
Don't miss these great products -- stop by CNET Exclusives today and start shopping. At 50 percent off, you will still have money left for a delicious pina colada when you get to the beach!
