Very Cool iPod Accessory

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just bought the coolest accessory for my iPod today at Target. It's called the iTrip. You plug it into your iPod, and your iPod will then broadcast on any FM radio. I now have every bit of my music on my iPod, and I can take it all along and play it in the car. No more toting around a billion CDs. I love this!

$24.99. Who can argue with that? I sprang for an iPod car charger, as well.

Does it broadcast clearly? I bought an FM transmitter for mine that works the same as the iTrip, but it sounded so bad that I returned it. I kept getting static so it sounded like a radio station that was losing it's signal. I saw the iTrip at Target but wanted to see reviews of it before I bought it. I was worried I would have the same problem.

I bought it because I went to dinner with my brother last night, and he had one. It sounded great! I tried mine out in the garage tonight and so far, no problems. I'll let you know after a true road test going to and from work tomorrow.

Great, thanks Deb! I was hoping to get that and a case for mine this weekend. I bought the Ipod socks for it at Target and I still ended up with a scratch. I came to the conclusion I need to fork out the $30 for a IPod Skin.

I´m actually looking into buying an Ipod, but i dont really understand the difference between Ipods and mp3players

An iPod is an MP3 player... I guess it's just become one of the more popular ones. It has so many accessories and features that other MP3 players may not have.

Try and find Belkin accessories for your ipod. I got a sillicone case for mine that was 20.00 bucks. cheaper than the brand name and I like it just as well. I also got the car charger from them and it was much cheaper than from ipod and seems to work just as well.

That's the brand of fm transmitter I had that didn't work well. But you are absolutely correct on the cases. I saw several of them at Best Buy recently and they are much cheaper than the actual "iPod" brands.

How awesome is that!

I'm lucky I would have never been able to afford one. But I won one an ipod nano at the vet convention.

How easy would that be than lugging all those cds around and trying to switch them when you're driving.

Mine went face down in a flooded street with me over the summer, so I'm just glad that it dried out and still worked.

Wow, that is lucky Deb! I found something online a while back about how tough iPods are. I can't remember if it was the Nano or the Mini (I have a Mini), but they were dropping it from a moving car, dropping it from a balcony, dropping it while jogging etc. to find out how much damage it could take. I was suprised by how well the thing held up

I heard about that too! A coworker was telling me about it. I think she said the most damage that was done (which was only some scratches) was when it was thrown out of a car driving 50 mph!!!

I was very relieved when I heard that because I am so clumsy sometimes. As soon as I saw how little the nano was I was afraid I'd sit on it and break it or something.

My BF has one, and its worked well for him. He has to change the transmit station depending on where we are (like when we go back home to visit parents) to find an empty one, but besides that he's really enjoyed it!

I'll have to get out and get one then. I have the Belkin transmitter and sometimes it works great then the next moment nothing but static plus the darn thing eats batteries like nobodies business. I got the one that plugs into the car charger, not very happy with it.

Also does anybody have any recommendations for a docking station/radio? I'm thinking about getting one for work. I have speakers that I plug it into a work now but I'd like something that will charge it at the same time.

The iTrip transmitter gets a big thumbs up on the first trip to and from work (I travel 35 miles each way). The sound was very clear. It doesn't use batteries. It gets its power from the iPod, which I put on the car charger while I was in work. Fantastic little piece of technology.
