I’m now an owner of a Griffin iTrip for my 3G iPod. My cassette tape adapter has had this annoying sound lately, and I was in Circuit City with a friend today. I can now see that Griffin Tech has an iTrip LCD FM Transmitter and a easy-to-use knob on the side – for $10 more. I have 14 days to return it to Circuit City, so I’ll ponder about it for a week.
How do I like it? It was surprisingly easy to install the frequencies onto my iPod, and lock stations into the iPod in the car. I was in the garage trying it out, but it sounds just fine to me. At least I don’t have to deal with the cassette tape adapter rattling between music tracks.
I’m not sure if I’ll return it to find one that has an easier way to manage it. But, if you have any thoughts (in addition to the ones in the reviews below), I’d love to hear how your iTrip has been for you.
