O’Grady’s PowerPage has posted an excellent review of the new iTrip.

“A number of FM modulators have been released since the introduction of the iPod but most have suffered from limited band selection and poor sound quality. Neither appears to be the case with the US$35 iTrip from Griffin Technology.

An FM modulator essentially turns the iPod into a low power radio station, taking the iPod signal and re-broadcasting it to an FM station of your choosing. The idea is to find an FM radio station that isn’t being used, digital tuners work best, then broadcast your iPod to it.”

So far I’ve no complaints with mine.  The red LED is a little hard to see in sunlight and like the review says, changing stations while driving may be dangerous.

Imagine if they actually shipped them. Imagine if those that placed orders back in June had them.

Just imagine.

I order an I trip, had it shipped to my house, but since I was at work I could not sign for it.  Why I have to sign for a $35 piece of equipment is beyond me.  When I finally picked it up at the will call at UPS.  I was ecstatic.  I couldn’t wait to get to my truck to open it I carefully cut through the tape, pulled out the packaging, the invoice only to reveal the bottom of the box.  Franticly, I looked around me for any sign of my iTrip, alas it was nowhere to be found.  Evidently, it was never put in the box.  Nice
