The Livio Carmen Internet Radio Car Kit is an FM transmitter that stores and plays back music from Internet-only radio stations across the globe as well as MP3 files. A report in the Chicago Tribune says the device plugs into the cigarette-lighter port in the car and transmits music over available FM frequencies. On the positive side, Carmen is said to be easy to hook up, and the driver can browse Internet stations by category (e.g., music, talk, sports) and genre (pop, oldies, rap, etc.). On the negative side, the device doesn’t work with Bluetooth car radios, nor can the driver listen to tunes while using its USB port to charge a cell phone. Carmen is listed at $59.99.
