A cool, rechargeable new design for the iTrip that plays well with others. Use with any audio source that uses a 1/8¿(3.5mm)

The point I'm trying to make here is... If you plan to use this gadget with pc's / laptops at home / work, basically any non moving stationary area (THAT IS NOT YOUR CAR!) The thing should work out good enough for you! (or maybe not if you happen to be an audiofile snob, but what do you expect from a device that's selling at this price?). So long as you can come across the proper vacant radio station/s within your given area. You shouldn't have any issues getting it to work. I use this site here --> http://www.radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/vacant. To find working vacant channels.
But really though, If your buying this device for use while in your car... It's either going to be an absolute hit or a miss (more likely a miss). Out of the majority of fm transmitter reviews that I've ever read, 100% of the bad reviews where all on car quality complaints! (Static, Static, Static, It Doesn't Work!) With only 1% positive car reviews from a person or maybe 2 or 3 max saying the device works perfect in their car from town to town / city to city. Not where I'm from though! I've gone through numerous fm transmitters (5-6) in the past till I realized that they absolutely SUCK for cars! As I resorted to the cassette deck, then got a vehicle with a cd player, than a vehicle with an aux input, to finally settling on going back to mp3 cds once again (which I'd otherwise go USB instead if I had the option to).
To sum up this review I will list what I'd recommend are the best ways to get music to your car...
- Usb Stick / Sd Card
- CD / Dvd
- Fm Transmitter
The reason I had placed Usb and Cd's above Bluetooth and Aux is because using your cars built in player while your driving is a heck of a lot safer than looking down and messing with your smartphone or mp3 player (as it's ok for passengers to look down and play the disc jockey, since they can look down for longer periods of time without any worries about the road). Since being a safety driving advocate, safer driving methods should be a must!
Honestly though, you'd be better off sticking it out and using your cassette tape deck adapter before you even make an attempt on using an fm transmitter while in your car as it probably won't end working at all for around 99.9% you! (lol)... These days though if your car doesn't have a cd player let alone a cassette deck player, It's Time For An In-Dash Upgrade!
If I had to come up with one flaw about the device, so far... It would have to be that while the device is plugged into the PC/Laptop, If no music is played within 60 seconds the fm transmitter automatically shuts off to conserve it's battery life (which is kind of annoying when there should be no battery life to concerned about when its plugged into a constantly powered laptop)... But... all in all, this is a very minor gripe at that.
Hopefully this left to right field review of mine will help out some of you. Good Luck!
I just wanted to let you know my review and tell you that while I love most Griffin products, I was/am highly, highly disappointed in the iTrip Universal. It will work, but not well, and I just can't give it a great recommendation like I had hoped to.
I needed to a longer audio cable to increase the signal level because the HiFi system for about 10 feet away. A 36" cable did the job. If you havent read this in other reviews, the audio cable also functions as the transmit antenna - so longer is better.
Unfortunately, the HiFi receiver does not have a squelch function, so when audio stops, the Griffin 7265 soon stops transmitting the RF signal, and the HiFi system then hisses white noise. Not a defect with the Griffin, just a defect in my application.
By the way, Pandora is a great web site for those of us who enjoy continuous background music taylored to our taste.
Battery life is not an issue in my use.

The performance is terrible. I even tried using a longer headphone cord. Not worth the money at all.
