On my quest to find a FM Transmitter, I bought a different itrip from Griffin, but it did not charge my ipod nano 4th Gen. So I called Grifin and they told me that in order to charge my ipod nano 4th Gen that it needs to be an itrip with Smart Scan technology. So i returned it and bought this one, and i'm very happy with it.

1. This unit charges our ipod nano 4th Gen no problem. The ring of light on the cigarette lighter plug lights up red when initially connected denoting power to FM transmitter, then amber once the ipod is connected (charging), and then it turns green when the ipod is fully charged.

2. I have a sealed radio in my car so therefore don't have an audio input unfortunatley (2005 Volvo s40 2.4i) and so FM Transmitters are a way of life for me. Your not going to get the perfect sound quality from these like you would with a direct input, so check to see if you got an aux input in your car first and then just buy a charger and a double male head phone wire. I have a Sirius Radio has an FM Transmitter so i'm use to dealing with changing frequencys every so often. I live in NJ and am in NYC and Long Island a lot. My car can tune to 87.9 which I use for the sirius radio almost everywhere, but sometimes while in NY I use 93.3 (pretty high on the frequency list, but for some reason it's clear).

3. Check to make sure your car can go into 87.9 range first, these channels are hardly ever used by radio stations, then switch this grifin itrip autoscan to international frequencies just press function, then press AND HOLD mode for roughly ten secons until a new menu appears. It'll give you US, EU, and JP choices above each of the three buttons on the itrip.

I've bought many FM transmitters from Kensington to Monster to DLo. This one is by far one of the best ones I have used. Kensington worked well, but stopped working after about 3 months of using it. I had returned others because there was too much static. I like this one because it searches for the 3 clearest channels that you could use, a feature that many others FM transmitters do not have.

As soon as you plug this FM adapter into an iPhone 3G you get a message stating that it really is not and truly can never be an official iPhone product and if you would like to turn off every feature of your iPhone that makes it an iPhone (namely the phone) just click "yes" and your iPhone will go into the aircraft mode and pretend that instead of crawling around in South Florida traffic you are jetting off to Europe.

The first couple of times I got an abbreviated and less descriptive version of this message, conditioned as I am to doing everything Steve Jobs wants me to do if I am using any Apple product (and I have a lot), I said "yes, yes, turn off that phone feature."

This was a mistake you can avoid by careful attention to this review. Here is our little secret (and please don't tell Steve I told you). If you click "no", the iPhone works just fine. You will be able to receive incoming calls, incoming emails, and text messages from your kids who have fingers far nimbler than yours ever were at any age.

Your iPhone will even pause the music before the phone rings so you can pick up business calls and actually speak without Jimmy Buffett singing "why don't we get drunk and screw?" in the background. If like me you actually receive calls from people other than your significant other, this is a useful feature which in its own way promotes marital harmony.

Now that feature alone would be worth the price. But it also charges your iPhone 3G, something even Steve Jobs doesn't talk too much about. And it contains another feature called "SmartScan" (to differentiate it from competitors' "dUMBsCAN" versions I guess).

This is one of those products that is only as good as your level of expatiation. I own a 2005 Subaru which has a sealed music system. There is no reasonable way to get into it. If you have any direct connect alternative, I would strongly recommend doing so and avoiding any FM transmitter. If you do buy the iTrip as I did, expect some compromises.

Just sending music over FM alone will diminish the quality. This is to be expected. What really effects this product is where you travel. I live half way between Philadelphia and New York city. The FM airwaves are crowded with stations. Including TV in the 87 range. Depending on where I drive, it is almost impossible to listen to. I could endlessly scan and try to find dead air, but there are just too many stations to deal with. If you have read some of the other reviews as I did this is no surprise.

Knowing the limitations, why did I buy the iTrip anyway? I didn't want or expect to use it on my daily commute, I bought it for taking on road trips. I take several trips a year to rural locations. There is very little radio and the trip is long - perfect for getting into some music. This is where the iTrip works well.

The scan feature is good, but the display is impossible to see in bright sun. If you travel alone this could be a problem. You will have to turn the volume to max on your iPod - and I had to adjust the settings to find a tone range that didn't sound too bad. The built in charger is a must.

Bottom line is if there is any way to avoid this product - do so, but if you have no choice this will keep you from going crazy listening to those country stations on long trips.
