Griffin iTrip


$60.00 Released March, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Runs off the iPod - doesn't need batteries or car power cord. Easy to position nearest a car's antenna for best sound quality (due to not requiring a power source). Compact and easy to carry.

The Cons:Many different versions being sold under the same name with no obvious distinction. Sound quality is far from as clean as a direct wired connection. Often simply refuses to turn on.

The Griffin iTrip is a tiny and compact FM transmitter built for iPods. Once connected, users can tune into FM radio stations anywhere from 88.1 up to 107.9. Plus, the unit sports selectable LX or DX modes of broadcasting, which means superior sound quality with reduced background interference.

Note also the unit’s digital LCD screen, which makes tuning into a desired station easier. Additional features of the Griffin iTrip include a built-in antenna, no batteries (power is received from the iPod), and a USB mini “B” port that works with the PowerJolt and a USB-to-mini-USB cable—useful for powering the iPod while using the iTrip.
