Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Two ways to listen to your iPhone or iPod touch through your car stereo. iTrip DualConnect combines Griffin's renowned FM transmitter technology with a plug for your car's 12 volt power outlet. An integrated cable plugs into the dock connector of your iPhone or iPod touch so iTrip can charge its battery while you drive. Control iTrip from your Multi-Touch display, using the free iTrip Controller App. Setup is a snap: just press the SmartScan button, then tune your car radio to the frequency that SmartScan finds for you. It's that simple. iTrip design puts the customer first, with features like ser-selectable stereo and mono modes, and programmable presets so you can save the most useful FM frequencies for quick recall. And Griffin SmartSound technology optimizes the signal for best sound, always. For car stereos that feature an auxiliary audio port, iTrip DualConnect provides an AUX jack. So you have a choice: you can use iTrip's FM transmitter to send the music wirelessly to your car radio, or connect your iPhone or iPod through iTrip directly to your car stereo's AUX-in jack. Either way, illuminated buttons on iTrip's charger plug give you Play, Pause, Forward and Backward track controls that you can operate by touch while driving.

I've used a previous iTrip with my iPhone4 and found it to be very effective - however the previous model that I used required the phones charging cable AND an audio connecting cable to be connected to the phone. This new model uses only the wide "charging" connector in the bottom of the phone (or iPod Touch) and doesn't required a separate audio lead which is much more useful. You now also don't need the Apple USB lead and can leave that in the house.

The cigarette lighter unit is small and compact and has illuminated buttons on the top for "Last Track", "Next Track", and "Play/Pause". Helpfully once it's all connected up you can start music playing by pressing "Play/Pause" on this unit rather than having to wade all the way through to iTunes on the phone.

When using it as an FM Transmitter (which you need to do if your car stereo doesn't have an "Aux In" socket - and if you're using it this way you can completely disconnect the audio cable which is shown in the picture of the device) a free App on the iPhone/iPod is used to find and select a broadcast frequency - this works really well.

I've knocked a star off because the design of the plug which goes into the cigarette lighter socket caused me to short-out the socket and blow a fuse in my car - £2.69 at Halfords for a packet of replacement fuses I had it all working. The plug has its side contacts very close to the bottom, much closer than the similar plug for my SatNav for example, and if you push it in too far and are unlucky it'll short out. It could just be the particular design of the socket in my vehicle - who knows!

Please note - this item requires an application to be downloaded to be able to change channels. It works fine with Iphone or Ipod touch, but is no good for a normal IPod.

After downloading the iTrip app from the iTunes store through my computer, I went to my car and had my iPod Touch playing music through the car FM radio in under five minutes. The iTrip app finds empty wavelengths in seconds, and then I stored the best on my radio on one of the push buttons, so that starting listening is a simple matter. The sound is just as good as playing a CD, and considerably better, of course, than listening to FM radio.

I wonder if some of the problems people have had with some of the Griffin iTrip models is something to do with the car or the car radio.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone. Now I can set up a playlist that will play for the whole of a long journey. Great.

Note added later: I still think it's very good, but what I hadn't realised was just how difficult it is to find a wavelength that will be OK for a journey of one or two hundred miles, you very soon move into an area where the wavelength that was empty when you started out comes into use. The list of UK FM transmitters at [...] is a great help, because you can see fairly easily if you're driving from, say, Cambridge to Nottingham, which will be the empty wavelengths for the entire journey. 87.7 FM in this case. The list is 30 pages long, but I've imported it into Excel and re-sorted it, and it's now very easy to use.

But what would be really good would be if the kit could do it for you: detect when a 'real' station is breaking in and switch to another empty wavelength. How about it, Griffin? I'll give you that idea for free.

I'm on my second one of these which has just stopped working. The wiring connected to the plug unit is easily dislodged/loosened\broken. However, when it works, it works well, I am able to fast forward, rewind and pause without taking eyes off the road. I use it with an iphone 5 with an adaptor. Now I'm considering whether to buy a third. If it wasn't for the delicate wiring I would give this product 5 stars.

Excellent product near idea having play pause rewind ff on the top of the plug that goes into the car battery charger. I am using it for my iPod classic but used my iPhone with the Itrip app which has the smart scan facility to find the best signal from your FM radio receiver. For those peeps who don't have an aux input in their car this is a great product

This is a remarkably simple product. Download the ITrip app from the app store (very small) and once plugged into the Iphone (mine is a 4s) or an Ipod Touch (Mine is a 4) then it fires up, chooses three low contention frequencies and, once your car radio is tuned in to that frequency, you are away. The whole setup process took less than 5 minutes. I have only used it on a few shortish journeys since then and experienced no interference, sound quality is pretty good and, frankly, you have to listen quite hard with the car stationary to hear any background noise. I can see that in a suburban environment interference may be a problem. Overall - excellent.

I have had 2 previous iTrips and this one has far exceeded them. Easy to use, syncs nicely with iPad, iPhone and iPod and allows good musical output with charging capabilities.
