Bought this for my 4th generation ipod a week or so ago.
2 things you need to know about this product:
a) Even when properly tuned, the sound quality is no where near as good as the ipod through headphones, mainstream fm broadcasts and certainly nowhere near as good as in car cd players. However, it isnt as bad as some reviews would suggest PROVIDED you can find a spare FM frequency in your area. Which brings me to:
b) To fully explore the UK FM range on most radios, you need to download additional frequencies from the Griffin website ([...] They are free. Select the "other areas" bit and this gives you frequencies from 70 -90. I live in Manchester and find that 87.5 works fine most of the time.
I dont know how sound quality compares with using a tape adapter but it saves the wires draping everywhere

Ok, reading about it I decided that it was an ok amount to pay on a gamble with this little item. Let me tell you something - its the next best thing to the ipod itself. I use it at home, in my car and at work. I had a dinner party and the ipod was in the middle of the table, people could just pick it up and choose another track from hundreds at any time - no getting up to change cd. The sound quality is excellent and works about 7 to 8 metres away from my stereo system. Its equally as good in the car and saves all that CD shuffling down the motorway.
A very cool product which works amazingly well.
A MUST have for all ipod fans.

Now then, I ummed and urred about buying this - having heard lots of people say that they had trouble with reception etc. All I can say is that it's fantastic for me. I get great reception at home, and in the car - I live near London and travel on the M25 every day and have not had any problems in the week I've had it. I would accept that the sound quality isn't quite as good as from a CD - but very close - but it does give you hassle free, wire free listening to any of your music whenever you want. FANTASTIC !! (PS I don't work for them !)

If only Griffin Technology could make an iTrip for other portable systems than the iPod - they would soon make millions off it.
Firstly, the iTrip is so good looking it compliments the iPod perfectly, almost as if it was made by Apple themselves. Behind the stunning good looks is the capability to transmit music perfectly for a more than ample distance - you could have two cars following each other and both of them could be picking up music from the same iPod - and at perfect quality
Frequencies are easily chosen as if they were playlists, all you need to do is search to a frequency on your radio where you hear nothing but static and then program the iTrip to that frequency, all on the iPod's controls - there is no fiddling around with tiny little dials on the side.
One of the best features of the iTrip is its ability to transmit music with no batteries. All other FM transmitters I have come accross require some kind of AAA or AA batteries to work - which means you have two things to worry about - the iPod's battery life and your transmitter's battery life. Some can't even run without batteries and have only power inputs from cigarette lighter adapters or an AC plug. The iTrip takes the tiny amount of power it needs all from the iPod - and doesn't deplete your battery life.
This is a certain must buy for all iPod owners!!!

I'm in love with this tiny device. I had absolutely no hassle with the delivery or the setting up of the itrip once it arrived. It is simply fantastic. The range and the quality of the transmission is excellent. Sound quality is superb and constant. The iTrip adds another dimension to an already wicked piece of kit, otherwise known as the iPod! A must have item for the home or car.

I was unsure about buying the itrip, having read mixed reviews on various sites. However, given the price I took the gamble as I had no other means of easily connecting to my car stereo.
My expectations were somewhat guarded as to reception, but I've been pleasantly surprised. The quality is similar to a normal FM station (once you get a clear frequency) and I tend to keep my ipod in my shirt pocket while driving. This seems to keep a fairly consistent signal strength and I tend not to get much interference from outside transmisions (I'm in the west midlands)
Having used it in 2 cars, the reception does also depend on the sensitivity of your car's radio / antenna.
As with the ipod itself, having many albums playing on one device, you certainly notice the differing levels they're recorded at, but this isn't a criticism of the itrip... just something that's quite noticeable when played via an external stereo.
Selecting a frequency is easy (if you follow the instructions)... I've found I could delete many of the frequencies provided to keep my library clean (since many I know will not work in my area) and have renamed the frequency filenames (e.g "106.2" to include where I use the frequency e.g. "my car") which has worked quite well.
For those of you expecting cd / headphone quality, you'll be disappointed. If like me, you have realistic expectations (it is after all an FM transmitter) you should be happy.
For the money, you can't really knock it for convenience, appearance and ease of use. I'm glad I took the gamble!
