Product Description

Product Description

iTrip AutoPilot with SmartScan - Control, charge and play your iPod® or iPhone through your car's FM stereo

Amazon.com

Straightforward and reliable, the RoadTrip from Griffin allows you to enjoy your library of music through your vehicle's sound system. Cord-based controls mean you can tuck your iPod out of sight (in the glove box or under a seat) and retain total playback control. If your stereo is RDS-enabled, the RoadTrip displays song and artist information.

Customer Reviews

I was confused about this, so I contact Griffin customer service and they confirmed this.
Guy Montag
When using this Griffin FM transmitter, I found a considerable amount of static no matter which station I selected.
Paul C. Tackett
If you press and hold the center button under it for about 10 seconds, it will jump to the top-center position.

This review refers to the 4046-TRPAUTOC model # just released the end of May 2008. This particular model does, in fact, support the iPhone.

OK, let's start out with the good news. Finally there is an FM transmitter on the market that supports the iPhone without triggering the Airplane Mode prompt. It uses the dock connector and will output audio from the unit even with videos. This gets it an extra star.

That's it. That's the good news. Everything else about it is garbage.

Frequency range - This unit will not tune to any stations below 88.1. This leaves out prime territory on most American vehicles' radios below this point were no real U.S. radio stations broadcast.

SmartScan - Supposedly this will scan the radio signals in your area and find the 3 frequencies with the least interference from terrestrial radio. Put simply, it doesn't work. The device will find a new set of 3 stations every time I run the scan mode, sitting in the same place geographically. Nine out of ten times the supposedly radio-free frequencies it finds are actually full-blown radio stations, and they're pretty strong ones. It has yet to find a frequency that is weak enough for the built-in FM transmitter to overpower. This despite the fact that there are a few genuinely free frequencies in this area.

SmartSound - Supposed to improve sound quality. Seems to turn the volume up a hair (kind of like the old "loudness" setting on some CD players of a decade or two ago). Yay! Louder static!

Radio Data System (RDS) - Supposed to broadcast the track and artist name along side the music to radios equipped with such capabilities. Doesn't work. Generally sends gibberish even when the audio signal can get through.

I will start this review by saying that it is a MUST that you use this unit on the 87.9 frequency. By default, the lowest the unit will go is 88.1, but I will describe how to toggle ON the lower frequencies so that you have access to 87.9 later in this review.

I use this unit with my iPhone 3g and have no issues with airplane mode or charging. Everything works as intended with no unexpected issues as far as compatibility with the iPhone 3G goes.

[Controls / Interface]
------------------------------
The controls and interface of this device are very clear and clean. There are 3 buttons on front of the cigarette lighter connector (Next Track, Previous Track, Pause/Play). The FM transmitter portion has three buttons on it also that adjust the frequency and give you menu options to toggle on and off. The display numbers are very clear to see, even during the day and the buttons are easy to press without any issues. The iPod/iPhone connector is pretty self explanatory and sturdy.

My only issue with the controls is the ones on the cigarette lighter jack. The buttons are pressable on the entire front surface of the connecter, which means that plugging the connector in causes you to change a track or pause/play if you connected the iPod/iPhone before powering up the unit. If you are like me and listen to music on the way to the car and want to easily transition, you may want to consider powering up first, then connecting the iPod/iPhone.

[Sound Quality / Signal Strength]
------------------------------
The signal strength of this device can only be described as lackluster when using any of the preset stations. This device is practically unusable on any frequency OTHER than 87.

I ordered the new iTrip and was hoping to use it in my SUV (a 2007 Chrysler Aspen). You download a free app to your iPhone, let it search for an empty piece of FM bandwidth and you're ready to go. The device is beautiful and very well designed. Unfortunately, with recent regulatory changes by the FCC, the allowed amount of signal strength just isn't enough to get a decent signal. Maybe my car has a lot of metal shielding in it, but I held the cable as close as I could to the external antenna, but it just wasn't usable. I ended up returning it. I don't consider this Griffin's fault but rather the FCC for implementing too strict regulations.

I had to get a new fm transmitter after i found out my trusty(and powerful) kensington fm transmitter would not charge my new iphone 3g. it had worked with my 1st gen iphone so i was a bit unhappy about it. After researching on the web for a few days i narrowed it down to the belkin tunescan for iphone and the griffin itrip autopilot. i chose the itrip because it had a better review on ilounge.com and im happy with the choice. im not sure where the other reviewers live but if you live in any big city you will have issues getting a good station with ANY fm transmitter. i live in the suburbs and the itrip scans and picks up a station quickly and it sounds as good as my old kensington. i also love the buttons and the light on the charger, it makes going through music easier and a lot safer then trying to press the iphone's screen.

so if you're looking for a iphone 3g fm transmitter that will charge, not bring up the annoying airplane pop up, and you don't live in or near any major cities, this is the one for you. If you live in or near a major city i recommend looking for an alternative method to connect your ipod/iphone to your stereo.
