Read Griffin iTrip Auto (2010 version)

Size ; Compatible with iPhone 4 and iOS 4 (with the exception of the on phone app) ; RDS

Weak Transmitter ; Interference was frequent ; SmartSound isn't working as advertised

Overall the iTrip Auto is a very solid product, that being said it does have some quirks to it with regards to audio interference from other radio stations, and even in some cases other transmitters from cars driving by (ie XM-Radio transmitters.) But...

Review: Griffin iTrip Auto SmartScan FM Transmitter

 

FM transmitter with SmartScan to find the best stations.

Excellent interface. Charges iPod while engaged. Easy to use while driving, but not recommended for safety

Expensive. SmartScan only mildly helpful in crowded FM markets

Griffin Technology offers a number of different FM transmitter solutions for the iPod product line. We reviewed the more expensive RoadTrip with SmartScan and iTrip AutoPilot previously, but found them lacking in transmission. It seems the slightly l

Not Awesome

 

I don't want to be too hard on this product as I haven't had the opportunity to try it outside of the very large city I live in, however, it's pretty frustrating to use here. It seems like as soon as it locks in on a station to broadcast through, the...

Great alternative

 

This is an easy and inexpensive way to listen to your tunes in a car. Works better with digital radios. I have an old classic car with an analog radio but it still works on that one too!

Just so so

 

It was very hard to keep a clear signal going. Every few miles, the static would kick in or the radio station would kick in and make listening to the mp3 nearly impossible. The volume is not very loud. I would not have kept this if I didn't use gift...

Works Like A Charm!

 

I use Griiffin iTrip on my motorcycle so I can listen to tunes on my phone. It works great (until you drive into an area where an FM station is active). So...I occassionally have to take a break, stop, and retune. No biggie. Easy plug and play setup....
