While portable audio players like the iPod are amazing for toting around your entire music collection in your pocket, they don’t work so well in the car. I mean, not only is driving with headphones in a dangerous thing to do, but I’m pretty sure it’s quite illegal as well, and you don’t want to mess with that.
What’s someone with a big, iPod-bound music collection to do on the open road? Get yourself set up with a Venturi Mini, a little device that acts as a connection between your car’s stereo and your music player or cell phone. It can get music playing on your stereo, so you can leave the headphones safely in your pocket. In addition, it acts as a mobile charger, making sure you don’t run out of juice in the middle of your road trip. It’s a much safer (and much more legal) way to listen to music off your portable audio player in the car than the headphone-related alternative. You want to be safe and legal, don’t you?
