I had to return this item.
Debra
I agree with other posts that it would not work as well if you are in an area with numerous radio stations and thus unable to find a clear frequency to use.
JB
Music sound is not 100% digital quality , but wasn't expecting it to be.

I first tried my itrip in standard mode and the sound reminded me of a radio station I know broadcasts from two counties away; I could clearly hear the music, but it was not the clearest sound. Then, I found specific directions regarding an old itrip version from "Eric William" in Michigan (a link to his review is at the end of mine). If you modify his directions (as I did below) for the new version, then you can easily set it to international mode and the sound quality was nearly CD quality.

1. Before buying the itrip, make sure your radio can tune lower than 88.1 (87.9 will work for the directions below).
2. Buy it, then set it up in your car as described in the quick start guide (pretty easy - just plug everything in)
3. After you have plugged everything in, hold down + and - at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until you see the LX/DX choice pass you by and then stop pushing + and - when you see the flashing "US". When you see the flashing "US", hit the + sign to select INTL instead. This just expands your signal options to go below 88.1 (88.1 is the lowest frequency upon which United States stations can broadcast). Give it a few seconds to go back to the normal screen and your setting is automatically saved.
4. Manually tune your radio and the itrip to 87.9 (note: to manually tune itrip, just click the + or -). If you like the way 87.9 sounds, hold down "SmartScan" until you see P1 and then it is a preset. If 87.9 doesn't tickle your fancy, you could even try 87.7. 87.9 works best for me and the sound quality is markedly better than the 100.3 the SmartScan found automatically.

Eric also suggested that you need to try to keep the transmitter as close to the radio as possible due to limited range.

I have used many different FM transmitters in my iPod history, and this one is no different than the others: if you can't find a weak FM station in your area, it's not going to work.

I originally and accidentally purchased the iPod-only version of the iTrip Auto (which oddly seemed to work with the iPhone, but I didn't want to take a chance so I got the proper version). Both of the devices worked fine on the FM transmitter functionality side of things. But all the FM transmitters I have used have worked fine (my previous model was a Kensington Pico for the iPod).

The sound quality to me is no different than the Pico, and as good as any other Griffin FM transmitter I have used. In general the sound quality of any FM transmitter just isn't going to sound as good as a wired connection, so I am basing my opinion relative to the technology. I think it sounds great, with the limitations of the technology in mind.

Cool iPhone features: when a call comes in, the music fades out so you can answer the phone and resumes when you're done (just as it does when using it without the iTrip). You can use the iPhone's features to do anything else you normally would, the iTrip does not hamper any functionality.

The cord is plenty long enough to place the transmitter or the iPhone just about anywhere you want.

I didn't test the Smart Scan feature as I already know which station I use in my area. Manually tuned it to the frequency and worked great.

I bought this and use it with an ipod touch 2nd generation. It works great for me. I also live in a rural area and agree that the reception can be bad depending on the area you are at as I have taken it to various places in the NorthEast. However there are a couple things that other reviewers mentioned that may be an issue. There are also a couple of solutions. This device has a power on/off switch on the end of the plug. Your car may or may not power off the cig lighter each start and shut off. Check that it is turned on by either being red or yellow or green. Else with the speaker now built into the ipod you get the illusion that it is broadcasting, lots of static on the radio and yet you can hear something. Again, this may not be the case it is just something to look into if other solutions are not working. Here is a tip too. These transmitters come with US and International settings. What that means is in the US you can get 87.9 MHz to 107.9 MHz FM on the radio. Yet in Europe you can get 87.5MHz - 108MHz. Your car radio, like mine, may be able to tune in 87.7 but there is nothing on it here in the US. Hold down the plus and Minus buttons together for about 10 seconds and you will have the option to choose International or US settings. Choose International and tune it to 87.7 and you should not have an issue.

I also looked at the roadtrip model and another family member has that unit. The only real issue I had with that is I like to keep my ipod in a case and it wouldn't fit in the mounting bracket with my case so I opted for this unit. The broadcast quality was the same with both and they both are set to the International settings as stated above, however it is a different key holding to enter the International settings.
