Read Griffin iTrip Auto (2010 version)

 

If you're like me, your car is a little too old to rock an auxiliary output connection for attaching your i or Zune.  Generally the only alternative to installing a new deck is to either use a cassette adapter or settle for an FM Tuner adapter.  While...

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

Review: Griffin iTrip Auto

 

Inobtrusive FM Transmitter for most iPods

Includes a fuse. Large display. Inobtrusive. One piece. Works with 3rd generation iPod, plus newest ones

Loses reception sporadically. Priced too high

Worth the money

 

Overall this is a good product for the price, which has most likely been reduced due to its lack of compatibility to charge with newer Ipods. Point is, it comes in clear over FM. If you dont need to charge, buy it.

Backlit LCD is easy to read in the dark. Comes in clear in my '03 eclipse, which has been difficult for other FM transmitters. Long cord.

No charging capability with 4th and 5th generation Nano. Still works, but will not charge.

after my own experience with an FM transmitter and reading reviews of others, my expectations were about dirt for this, and i'm happy to say it exceeded them! have never needed to change the station (and my area is pretty radio-heavy. a little static...

fine reception, charges the unit, easy to navigate through stations (though i haven't needed to), seems built well enough, put's the volume from my ipod at a constant

yeah, there's static, but you knew that

Didn't work well for me at all

 

Was able to use it as a charger.

I could not get good reception in at all with this unit. I tried in both of my cars. It just would not come in clearly

Wrong Picture

 

This is a picture of the iTrip Universal. It's battery powered, doesn't power or charge the mp3 player. This is actually the product I'm looking for but, the link is for an old model of the iTrip auto Universal

ITrip Aoto for iPod Touch

 

I have the Touch, even though the specs say it's compatible, maybe it is not for some reason.

It works fine playing music through the car speakers, no complaint

One reason why I bought it was the charging ability, however it clearly states that "this item does not support charging of iPod" when plugged in to the car, if I cannot get this corrected its going back to Newegg for a refund

FM Transmitter OK! But cannot charge..

 

I own a 32 GB iPod Touch. When you plug the FM Transmitter into the iPod, it would say that the format is not compatible (won't charge in the car). But, pick your station you set your transmitter to, and it'll play the music in your car. Location: Salt...

Everything except charges my iPod Touch

The fact that it DOESN'T charge my iPod Touch. iPod Touch owners, don't buy this product because it will JUST play your music
