Griffin Announces iTrip Station Finder Software
Griffin Technology has released a free OS X application for finding clear FM stations within the U.S. for use with the iTrip FM transmitter.
“This small free application assists iTrip owners in finding clear frequencies in over 200 cities and towns in the United States. [...] The new iTrip Station Finder application makes this process much easier and faster by suggesting the frequencies that have the least interference near them. [...]
The iTrip Station Finder’s city-based frequency list has been compiled by analyzing extensive data about a given metropolitan area and its current radio station offerings. Frequencies were then selected that were not only empty, but also contained adjacent clear channels. For example in Dallas, TX 102.5 is suggested for use with the iTrip. That means that not only 102.5 is clear, but 102.3 and 102.7 are clear as well.”

NASHVILLE, TN – July 24, 2003. Griffin Technology Inc, innovator of exciting hardware and software products for the Mac market, today announced the iTrip Station Finder. This small free application assists iTrip owners in finding clear frequencies in over 200 cities and towns in the United States. The iTrip FM Transmitter is of the hottest iPod accessories in the world because it allows iPod owners to play their iPod’s music in their cars or over their stereo through the FM radio. One of iTrip’s most unique features is its ability to broadcast to any FM frequency on the dial. The new iTrip Station Finder application makes this process much easier and faster by suggesting the frequencies that have the least interference near them.

“Finding an open station for the iTrip in large urban areas can be very difficult – but they’re still out there. The iTrip Station Finder saves a great deal of time by suggesting possible stations to start with instead of the user looking for them like a needle in a haystack.” said Paul Griffin, Griffin Technology.
