At it core is Griffin’s proprietary SmartScan technology, which automatically locates the best frequencies, thereby ensuring seamless FM transmission. Like its peer, it sports selectable LX/DX modes of broadcasting for stations anywhere from 88.1 up to 107.9. Most unique about the iTrip Auto SmartScan, however, is its simple 1-cable design that allows the device to transmit iPod signals to to a car, while also charging it. One side of the cable connects to an iPod, whereas the other directly into an automobile’s charger slot – the cigarette lighter opening.
