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..
the overall look matches the 1st gen nano perfectly. Yet I can see that the sticky pad will only last for so long and without it the nano sicks out at the top by about 2 mm. The antenna is easily found at the base on the back around the griffin label. The usb connection from the iTrip to my computer is a usb mini type connector the same as the psp and a few other mp3 players I own but the connection is just as good as the apple usb cord. The sound quality in a house is as good as the radio stations that come in well even through a wall and 15 feet of air. I have not tried in a car but i can not imagine it being that bad. overall it was defiantly worth the price at less than 20 dollars with shipping.
I still can use it for my Gen 1 Nano.
It works fine and the design compliments the Nano quite nicely. It gives good reception provided you set it to an unused radio station. It also has a USB jack so that you can charge your Nano while in use in the car. Overall a good buy.
Amazon: Please indicate that this will not work on Generation 2 Nanos.
I also think it would have been great at preventing the transmitter from breaking off, which, has been a concern with those that simply insert into the bottom or top of the iPod.
They were really great about returning it, though, so no harm done, I suppose. Loss of shipping costs to return it.
