Livio Radio's Bluetooth Internet Radio Car Kit may not be the most mellifluous product name we've ever heard, but it's certainly an apt one. Known as "The Kit" for short, this plug-and-play device allows drivers to stream music from their iPhone or iPod Touch, directly through their car's FM radio. The system also boasts hands-free Bluetooth calling capabilities and a set buttons that let you control Livio's Car Internet Radio application, providing access to over 45,000 radio stations with no monthly fees. Interested parties can grab their own Kit at the source link below, for $120. Otherwise, just steer past the break for an espresso shot of PR.

FERNDALE, Mich., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Livio Radio, a Michigan-based manufacturer and developer of car Internet radio products and services, today announced the arrival of their much-anticipated Bluetooth Internet Radio Car Kit. "The Kit," previewed at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, is a plug-and-play gadget that brings Internet radio and music from your iPod® or iPhone® to any FM car stereo.

The award-winning application available from the App Store offers more than 45,000 radio stations from around the world when connected to The Kit.
