Griffin iTrip Auto
Released March, 2009
The Pros:Easy to figure out, don't need to even read the instructions. Audio generally comes through loud and clear, every bit as good as another radio station. Seems to work with almost any portable device.
The Cons:Occasionally gets some static on the pre-set channel you've selected. Some signal loss can be noticed - not as clear as a direct wired connection. Some areas have radio channels on almost every frequency, makes it hard to find one that stays open as you drive.
The Griffin iTrip Auto is an FM transmitter and car-charger built for iPods and iPhones. It is an immediate step-up from the Griffin iTrip, in that it adds along SmartScan technology, as well as the ability to transmit iPod signals to a car's dash.

This Griffin-exclusive technology (SmartScan) 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 Griffin iTrip Auto, however, is its simple 1-cable design that allows the device to transmit FM radio to an iPod, 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.

can scan automatically for an available frequency, don't have to worry about finding one yourself

not very durably built, need to make sure you don't bump the casing too much or it can come apart within a year or so of regular use
