From the ManufacturerThis black version of the popular iTrip FM transmitter
for third-generation iPods can play your music through any FM radio: in your
car, at work, at a party; wherever the mood strikes you--as long as there's a
radio handy. The iTrip gives you the cleanest possible signal, too, since you
can tune for the best performance by choosing any radio station on the dial.
What's more, the iTrip needs no batteries--it draws its tiny, nearly
unmeasurable current directly from the iPod, and it can rotate out of the way
so you can charge the iPod while the iTrip is still in use.
Choose the best frequency for broadcast.
The iTrip can transmit wirelessly to any radio.There's not even a power
switch--you just plug it in and go. It shuts off automatically after 60 seconds
of silence, just like the iPod. If the iTrip is already connected to the iPod,
it will turn itself on after it detects a few seconds of audio. With iTrip, you
have over 100 stations to choose from, which you select directly from the iPod.
An installed playlist from the supplied CD-ROM called iTrip Stations contains
every available station. You can keep them all in your iPod or just keep the
ones used regularly--you manage them just like songs.How does it sound? All the
iTrip does is create a miniature FM radio station on top of your iPod, so it
has the potential to sound as good as the best FM radio stations. The iTrip
does not have the physical space to accommodate the iPod remote control (it
lacks the required female iPod headphone connector to provide a signal
pass-through), and the iTrip occupies the iPod's headphone jack, so it's one or
the other at any given time.
Be advised that some car windshields impair FM radio transmission, which could
prevent you from using the iTrip with your car radio. Some windows have a
metallic film that substantially blocks the FM signal traveling from within
your car to your external antenna. You can usually tell which windshields have
the film by looking carefully--if you see an unusual bronze or reddish tint,
you might have the metal film; if you see a very fine grid pattern you might
have woven metal wires. Check with your car dealer to be sure.
