Before you buy, go to your car and make sure you can set your radio to 87.9 frequency or lower. If you can, they you can use this UNused setting. No US radio station is allowed to transmit on this frequency. If you can set your car radio to this, then BUY either the product on this page or the other Griffin iTrip (with the standard headphone connector). I have both, and they BOTH use the SAME instructions.
First, plug in the iTrip. You Have two buttons - a larger +/- button and a smaller button that will either have "Select" or "Preset" written on it.
Hold down the smaller button for 10-15 sec. At first the display will flash "2" or some other number. Ignore that. Just keep waiting. Then the display will flash "DX" or "LX". Use the +/- to change to LX (non stereo mode). Press the smaller button and the selection is saved.
Now for International Mode (to get the stations below 88.1).
Hold down the smaller button for 10-15 sec. At first the display will flash "2" or some other number. Ignore that. Just keep waiting. Then the display will flash "DX" or "LX". IGNORE THIS ALSO, JUST KEEP HOLDING DOWN THE SMALL BUTTON. The display will change to "US" Use the +/- to change to INTL mode. Press the smaller button and the selection is saved.
With my iTrip set to LX and INTL I now set both the car and the iTrip to 87.9. I use the iTrip instructions to save this as a preset. I also set one of the buttons on my car radio to the same.
When I use my iPod, the sound is crystal clear, I do NOT need to adjust the car radio to super-high volume. It is perfect. However, iTrip no longer comes with instructions to set to INTL mode, nor could I find these instructions on their website or on the web. So ... print this, get this and you will have a five star experience!
So I opted for simplicity. The 9501 consists of a lighter plug-in, a small control box and an iPod adapter on a three foot cord. First, the FM signal feature generally functions well. Expect periodic problems in areas with high FM channel density. But this occurs with any unit using FM to link into your car's sound system.
What is really neat is the little control box with a channel preset feature. Driving along I can quickly and safely change from one FM channel to another using the preset button. It holds five channels I believe. Searching for non-programmed channel is also easy using the toggle button. Since the box is on a wire I can hold it in front of me to change the channel without taking my eyes off the road.
Having the iPod attached to a cord also provides a significant safety advantage. Again, I can hold the iPod in front of me to change play lists without taking my eyes off the road. And when I'm not using the iPod the entire unit can be wrapped up and put in the glove compartment.
Before going too "hi tech" I would highly recommend giving this little device a try. Again, realize that using FM transmission for access to your car's sound system will always result in moments of distortion. If you are real stickler for sound quality then pay the money and hard wire your iPod into the sound system. But if you an occasional user like me with an average "ear" take a look at the 9501.
Btw, I tested this on a 2007 Volvo S40, 2000 Toyota Avalon, and a 2000 Chevy Cavalier. I used it on the frequency of 87.9 in the Washington D.C. Metro area. Worked great on all the cars. I highly recommend this!
One of my friends was able to improve upon the issue of the low treble: Just fool around with the iPod's equalizer. We found the "Treble Booster" setting to work fine.
Then I moved to Houston, and discovered to my chagrin, that I had the same problem with crowded dial and insufferable static. In despair, I was about to give up on the idea of an FM transmitter when I spotted the reviews for this version. I wondered how the cheaper iTrip could actually compare to my more costly Road Trip, but decided that it was cheap enough to give it a shot.
Well, being able to go below 88.1 FM makes all the difference, it turns out. Following the directions so kindly shared here I now have the thing preset to 87.9 and 87.5, and the signal is great. I rarely get interference, and although I do turn the volume on my stereo up a bit high to listen to podcasts, the sound quality is really good. Very happy with this purchase- the first time in my life that the superior gadget turned out to be the cheaper option.
