Like all of Grifin's iTrip products, iTrip Auto Universal Plus lets you listen to your MP3 player through your car's stereo speakers. We call this one universal because it works with virtually any MP3 player that has a 1/8 (3.5mm) headphone jack. And we call this one Plus because it provides a means for powering and charging your player using your own charge/sync cable and an included USB port on the 12 Volt power adapter.
From the Manufacturer
Griffin's iTrip Universal FM Transmitter and Charger has a cool rechargeable design that plays well with others.

Three user-programmable presets save the best frequencies so you can access them quickly later. Select stereo or mono output.

The cable is appropriately long and can be used easily from the driver and passenger seats. If you hand the device to someone in a rear seat without access to an outlet then the cord seems a little short.
Great for the car when you don't want to listen to the radio. On long trips you may have to adjust which station you transmit as you travel and approach new stations.
The little screen is very sensitive to changes in temperatures. If the screen is in a hot car or in the sun then the screen turns completely black and may not work until cooled down. When cool it will work and the numbers will display on the screen.
The tuner is digital and saves presets. The 9volt plug includes a USB jack but it is not a music input like some other transmitters offer, it merely functions as an adapter to charge another device via USB. (Similar to a separate device that inputs into your 9volt and has 1 or 2 USB inputs)
Although The FM transmitter power is a decent strength, unlike other models I have dealt with that have a terrible signal, there are others that cost a little more that have a stronger signal and more functionality i.e. a SD card slot, and a USB jack that you can use any storage device to play music through, such as a flash drive... as well as the 1/8" input.
I have seen similar transmitters go for more and this unit is just as good - however, I've seen others, as I mention above, with more functionality (SD slot/USB plug, etc.) and a stronger signal, as well as a digital display that shows the track info (this unit only shows the station you are using) for 5 - 20 dollars more.
This did, however, save me from buying a new car stereo with a direct AUX input, but I kind of wished I would have paid a little extra for one of the multi-input devices with full LED screen.
Do your comparison shopping and it may be worth it to spend an extra 10 bucks for something like what I mentioned above. The final word on this little guy is that it serves its purpose if you just need one for a cheap price and to play MP3s from a player with an 1/8" output.
The sound quality that I was able to hear was fine. I didn't hear a ton of static and I was able to use the same station I always use & have used for the past year. I tried the international setting that everyone raves about and actually found that I got a really poor reception & static with 87.9).
I didn't realize, at first, that I needed to turn up the volume on my iPod (I'm used to the older version that attaches via the usb port) and all I could hear was my car revving with the faint sound of music in the background. Very strange! But once I found the perfect combination of volume on the iPod + radio volume, it was totally fine. I'll continue to use & purchase Griffin transmitters until I finally get a car with a built-in iPod port!
