The iTrip FM transmitter for the iPod can broadcast to any FM radio. For example: in your car, at a party, in the dentist’s office to overpower the Musak, wherever the mood strikes you, and there is a radio around.
The iTrip is clearly made specifically for the iPod and has certain advantages over similar devices. For example, with the iTrip, you can have the cleanest possible signal – because you can choose any radio station on the dial to tune for the best performance possible. You do this by ‘playing’ special station codes directly from the iPod itself.
Another advantage of the iTrip is that it needs no batteries, it receives its tiny amount of power from the iPod, and it can rotate out of the way to charge the iPod while still in use. No more batteries ever again.
There’s not even a power switch, just plug it in and go. Very Apple-like. It shuts off if automatically after 30 seconds of silence, just like the iPod. The iTrip is a great accessory for the iPod because it allows you to share the music beyond your headphones.
