The Carclip Puts Your iPod At Eye Level

By David Ponce

If you’re going to have something dangling from your car’s rear view mirror, do you really think your best option is that air freshener that ran out of fresh about five months ago? Why not make it something useful?

You could, for instance, purchase The Car Clip and put your iPod where you can see it. That way, you can change tracks and such, while still doing the relatively important part of driving that requires your eyes to be on the road.

Right now, the company is shipping these $25 acrylic accessories in formats that will fit the mini and the nano. Support for other models are in the works and should be out eventually. Check out the website. Story VIA iLounge.

    Probably the worst idea I’ve seen yet. I love the iPod but the accessories market is just plain bad.

    I believe it’s spelled “illegal” and I really doubt that it is – are air fresheners illegal?

  • Eric

    Yeah, I think they are. Anything hanging from your rear-view mirror while the car is in motion is where I live…

    in the state of illinois it is illegal to have something dangling below the rearview mirror that is longer than 3 inches or something like that. so eric and mark (aka “ill eagle”) are right. depends on the state and whether or not the law is actually enforced.

    also, it is a really, really stupid idea.

    In Australia its illegal as well for something hanging up like that

    It also creates an obstruction of your vision which in some states is a ticketable offense (nj)
