Griffin iTrip Auto Universal Plus


$50.00 Released September, 2007

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Standard 1/8" headphone plug means it can work with any portable player - not just iPhone/iPod. Powered by 12-volt accessory outlet. Includes USB charging.

The Cons:Can't access coveted 87.9 MHz frequency - discontinued, non "plus" model had an international workaround. Can only be used in your car because of 12-volt power limitation. Charges iPod very slowly - WAY slower than an outlet.
