Plug In, Turn Up, Rock Out: Ford USB Music Box

Ford USB Music Box is an aftermarket accessory enabling drivers of vehicles not factory-fitted with a USB port to connect any USB mass storage device to their vehicle’s stereo. Songs and albums can be selected via the steering wheel-mounted controls. Devices such as phones and MP3 players recharge when connected.

Anyone who has spent a long journey endlessly flicking through radio stations knows that sometimes only your own music collection will do. However, if your vehicle doesn’t have a factory-fitted USB port, connecting your MP3 player can often result in a maze of wires, inferior sound quality, and no remote control function. Thankfully, Ford is now offering an aftermarket accessorythat provides the solution – the USB Music Box.

Offered through Ford dealers across Europe, the USB Music Box enables drivers and their passengers to plug their MP3 player, or any USB mass storage device, into the car and listen to their choice of music in razor sharp quality.

The USB Music Box consists of a USB socket, which can be placed out of sight in the glovecompartment, centre console or armrest. Any USB mass storage device, such as a mobile phone, MP3 player or USB stick, can be connected. Stored music can then be played through the AUX channel on the car’s stereo. Songs, albums and folders can be selected through the steering wheel-mounted controls, while devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players and cameras will automatically recharge whenever they are connected. Simple Plug and Play wiring means the device can be fitted and ready to play your favourite tunes in less than an hour.

I heart Magnums (ice creams that is)

I think this is really funny. It’s a Magnum ice cream thumb drive. Just pop the end off and plug into your USB port. It comes complete with a matching box & strap and the strap is detachable in case the ice cream melts…

The perfect gift for anyone who likes Magnums I suppose. Available at www.etsy.com
