    This is a very easy to use accessory to listen to your personally selected music while driving. It's so easy to use that I never even bothered to read directions. It does occasionally get some static or have interference on the pre-set channel you have selected but that's a problem any device of this nature would have depending on your locale. I would definitely recommend it. As always, the price[...] from B&H were great.

    I have to say this is a hard review to write. I took the iTrip out of the box and it had everthing I wanted. Sleek, small size, well constructed, full featured with RDS text and options to enhance the sound. The big BUT is that the signal strength is not strong enough to provide consistently clear sound. The smartscan feature quickly recommended different stations but they were all close to other stations which would bleed over as I drove. I tried unsuccessfully over three days to find a setting that would work, without luck. The minimum tunable station is 88.1 so you can't get to the free space under the standard broadcast band. My radio can be tuned to 87.x so if they had allowed that, I would have rated it 5 stars. I have an SUV so the distance from the dash to the antenna is a bit longer than in a smaller car.

    Comments about Griffin Technology iTrip Auto FM Transmitter and Charger for iPod and iPhone:

    It's my second fm transmitter. I drive acar with Bose sound installed, and sound comes with noise, that is not good. When other car with the same radio frequence passes by I hear only his music. Very fast iphone charge. Well, it's the only good news about the item. Nevertheless, it would be great to have possibility to only HEAR, not always CHARGE the phone, which in my opinion affects battery life in long term

    Comments about Griffin Technology iTrip Auto FM Transmitter and Charger for iPod and iPhone:

    I own a 2005 Subaru Outback with no support for external audio inputs so I thought this would be an ideal sulution for hooking up my iPod or iPhone.

    The product is slick and the iPhone app is fine but unfortunately there are only 3 available free frequencies in Vancouver where I live and the adjacent frequencies are occupied by high power signals. As a result the product is useless for me in town but maybe better on the highway in more rural areas.

        Great in the car. Advantage over older models is that it recharges. The small drawback is that I can't use it without a power source on a house or portable radio.

                      I have to say this is a hard review to write. I took the iTrip out of the box and it had everthing I wanted. Sleek, small size, well constructed, full featured with RDS text and options to enhance the sound. The big BUT is that the signal strength is not strong enough to provide consistently clear sound. The smartscan feature quickly recommended different stations but they were all close to other stations which would bleed over as I drove. I tried unsuccessfully over three days to find a setting that would work, without luck. The minimum tunable station is 88.1 so you can't get to the free space under the standard broadcast band. My radio can be tuned to 87.x so if they had allowed that, I would have rated it 5 stars. I have an SUV so the distance from the dash to the antenna is a bit longer than in a smaller car.

                          Can't expect to have perfect sound using this type of music playback but this item does a great job for the price. In a larger city where there are numerous radio stations you may need to change the frequency quite often but this is very simple to do using this transmitter vs. others. The quality of buttons & features appear they will hold up.

                              Takes a little fiddling to find the best station to tune into, but once that's done it works OK. The sound does include a little, barely audible static, but it's fairly close to the sound quality you get from your car radio.

                              This model is ONLY for use in the car, as it must be plugged into your cigarette lighter in order to work.
