iLounge is iTrippin’

Griffin shipped our iTrip overnight to iLounge and now it’s in our hands. Simply put, its’ the coolest gadget for iPod. The digital FM transmitter didn’t drift off frequency and provided good sound reception in a small package. So far we’re impressed. The iTrip has a blue LED which isn’t in any of Griffin’s product photos. The LED indicates the iTrip is ‘locking-in” the chosen frequency on initial setup. Then, choose your song and iTrip is transmitting it to your FM receiver. A more detailed review will be posted next week. There are photos posted in the forums.pic

I do indeed own an Itrip, and will say that this is a great product. Its a little tricky finding a strong station not close to other station in the Bay Area but i did manage to find a couple. No drifting of the stations over time either. I traveled just yesterday through three counties and it didnt skip a beat. The only bad part of this product i believe is the fact that you need to have Musicmatch Jukebox installed to install the playlist for the stations. Really all you have to do is copy and paste your own playlist from the cd and have it recognized by whatever your using ie. Ephpod or Xplay. Well worth the 35 dollars.

A good frequency that works reliably well for me is 91.3. I live in San Jose and commute to San Francisco.

I recieved my iTrip in the mail…Musicmatch never worked on my PC, and have been using Ephpod to synch my iPod…I copied the playlist and files using Ephpod, but can’t get the iTrip to stop “rolling” through all of the frequencies…despite follwoing all other instructions). I am going to try deleting all except 88.1 (which has worked well using an iRock)...any ideas, anyone?

I have been using my new iTrip for a week and I like it. It does not have the sound quality of a cassette adapter but, for the convenience it cannot be beat! No cables! There is occasional radio noise, but I am using it in my car. Cars and radios have built-in noise anyway. I give it a thumbs up.

For the new iPOD-ers, the new iTRIP will be in w/in the week.  I received a response form  The response is as follows:

“Yes, as soon as we have it available, the “Add to Cart” button will function. We can’t wait to get it ourselves! : )

  Please come back and check by the end of this week or early next week.

  Thank you for your interest in our products”
