imageGriffin Technology today announced that its new iTrip FM transmitter for the iPod nano is now shipping. The new iTrip uses the nano’s LCD display for on-screen tuning, and features a new “sled? design that wraps around the bottom and back of the nano, connecting via the device’s dock and headphone connectors. The iTrip nano also features Griffin’s SmartSense volume control, selectable mono or stereo modes, support for US, International and Japanese tuning modes, and a built-in USB port. It comes with a microfiber carrying pouch to keep iTrip and nano free of scratches. The iTrip for the nano is priced at $50. An extended First Look at the new iTrip is available here.

WELL IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME!

I cancelled my order WEEKS ago. I’ll just buy it in a store if it gets good reviews.

Bytheway: Griffin= worse customer service EVER.

Yeah, I wouldn’t order anything direct from Griffin. I went through the same thing with the original iTrip. Although I did end up buying one off a discount table at an Apple store later and have been completely thrilled with it since. Handiest little accessory and can be rather devious.

I have been waiting a long time for the iTrip for Nano too.  I’m sure when it finally arrives it will be worth the wait.  I use an iTrip for my older 3rd generation iPod and it works great.  Of course it uses more battery power but I plug the charger into the cigarette lighter when the battery gets low.  Since the Nano has 14 hours of battery life, I probably won’t have to do that anymore.

i would have ordered this. i emailed griffin’s customer support and found out that no cases can be on the nano when using the itrip. it’s obvious from the pictures, it’s just too bad they didn’t make an adapter or something that would allow for a case to be on. especially since the nano is so prone to scratching. maybe there will be a case that encloses the nano and itrip all at once.
