From the Manufacturer
The slimmest FM transmitter available, the iTrip for iPod nano takes an entirely new approach that lets you use the iPod display for viewing station information. Griffin's SmartDisplay technology seamlessly integrates all functions and features with the iPod nano. iTrip information is displayed on the best screen in the industry: the gorgeous iPod nano screen. One-touch navigation puts all iTrip functions at your fingertip. This also makes iTrip for iPod nano the easiest-to-operate FM transmitter. The exclusive SmartSense volume control, dynamically adjusts iPod's volume level for optimal audio quality. Additionally, users can control iTrip's volume level through the iPod's click wheel.
Your iPod nano slides into iTrip and securely connects via the iPod's dock and headphone connectors. The iTrip accomplishes all this without adding bulk to the slim, sexy iPod nano. To stay securely attached it uses patented micro grip technology. This technology uses microscopic material to provide a secure grip without ever losing its holding properties.
One of the many innovations pioneered in the iTrip is selectable stereo or mono modes of broadcasting, allowing you to adjust for the absolute best possible audio under real-world conditions. In the toughest situations, even in large cities with lots of radio stations crowding the dial, iTrip's mono mode delivers a noise level that's below that of a cassette tape adapter, allowing the music to punch through cleanly. Your ears will agree: the results are stunning.
Another iTrip first is the ability to choose among US or International tuning modes. International modes allow access to available frequencies in different parts of the world, keeping your tuning band uncluttered and free of frequencies that don't apply where you are.
Keeping your music broadcasting is no problem. iTrip draws its nominal power directly from iPod nano, requiring no batteries or AC adapters. A built-in USB port allows iPod nano to charge or synchronize music. Perfect for use in autos or at home.

Top Customer Reviews
My wonderful wife gave me the iTrip by Griffin Technologies (for my iPod Nano) for our Anniversary (She's a doll!) but I was disappointed that a) it used the iPod's battery power, and b) that you have to remove any protective cover in order to dock the iPod on the iTrip - which for someone on the go is really impractical to do all the time. While I liked that you could change stations on the screen of the iPod, the interface was still a little cumbersome.
Monster Cable's iCarPlay Plus answers all of those concerns and then some. There are three pre-programmed stations, a nice LED display, you can charge your iPod while you listen, and there's no removing it from the case every time you get in/out of the car! And unlike what some people said in their review, this product DOES let you change the volume from the stereo, you don't have to use the iPod volume.
Signal strength was fine, we even found that my wife's car - a car length away - could pick up my signal, but dealing with the dock just wasn't worthwhile. If I only used it in the car I would stick with it and buy a power source, but since I use the iPod everywhere, it's not practical.
I'm going to buy another iTrip. I know I discussed the cons, but the iTrip broadcasts on a couple lower stations than most other FM transmitters that makes it even better for using in the car in large cities. Removing it from the protective case is certainly a hassle, but depending on how you use it, and how often you need to remove/re-case it this can be overcome. Purchasing a car adapter for the USB port allows easy re-charging while in use, and of course you can use it without plugging it in, which I can't say for the Monster transmitter I purchased. So I can't use it in the house for instance. So basically I'm going to need both to do everything I want to do..
* In some areas you can hardly find a frequency with no interference (try NY).
* iPod Nano volume has to be at least 50%, more like 70%, and your radio volume has to be close to max (so when you accidentally change the frequency to the nearest music station you go deaf for a couple of seconds)
* You can't use it for 5 hours straight - iPod Nano is small, so is its battery.
I never used other transmitters, so I don't really know how good this one is in comparison. Bottom line - do NOT expect the music coming out of your radio to be as good as out of a decent headphones, or even wired speakers.
The transmitter has a mini-USB jack, so I have found a way to charge the iPod while listening... but the moment I connect the wire I typically hear irritating hissing. But not always. But often. I can also connect iPod to the computer through this miniUSB and transfer files/music.
The good thing is how the transmitter is designed. It's small and cute, and it sits behind Nano (and a little bit at the bottom). I put a piece of velcro on its back, so the whole thing is not bouncing all over the car when I make a corner but sits in a convenient location on the dashboard.
