    Argh, we just got the previous version a couple of weeks ago!

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    Sorry to hear that, but that is great a product too. Are you enjoying it?

  • sys64738

    Hi Dave,

    We are. I think it does as well as any FM transmitter can, given their technical limitations. The portability of it was what sold me, since we could easily move it from car to car–especially rentals! :)

    looks real cool ill be picking one up and maybe doing a review on it

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    I'm happy to hear that. Thanks for letting me know. Playing your music in
    rental cars is huge! Great point.

    Hey that's great Brian. I look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Cheers.

    What is the difference between the ITrip and the RoadTrip – when is new RoadTrip going to be available and which one is better for IPod FM transmitter?

  • hjf

    Is there a way to put this into international mode? I've read things online that doing this with older models works better if you can get 87.9 on the radio, which i can do. Any help? I've tried holding down various buttons without success. Since the instructions come in many languages, there must be an easy way to do this! Thanks

  • hjf

    is there a way to get this new model into the international mode?

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    If you buy it internationally, yes. If you're planning to travel with it, you'll need to speak with Support directly.

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    You can contact our support department if you are planning to use the device
    internationally and need to switch it to that mode.

    I hope that helps,
    Dave

    The new RoadTrip will be available very soon. I don't know the exact date
    yet.
    There are several key differences between iTrip and RoadTrip. One big one is
    that RoadTrip has a cradle that holds your device in place:

    smaller, but has app support:

    Both are great products!

    I hope this helps.

    Will it charge an iTouch 3G? This is priority #1 for me as the old model wouldn't charge it thanks

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    Yes, it will charge. Thanks.

  • Rock Holly

    Thanks for the reply Dave. I am curious about the vagueness relating to setting international mode on? I did the same thing to get this to work better by tuning to 87.9 so why the mystery of how to activate this?

    This is a key question as I am not going to spend $70 unless I know I can get the same tweaks to work to make it perform better like the old version

    Thanks

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    We are not allowed to broadcast below 88.1 in the United States, as under
    FCC law. Many iTrip models do have an International setting, and the iTrip
    is programmed to that setting if it is being sold in Europe and certain
    other areas. Sometimes you can research online to find out how to change to
    other modes, but we cannot assist you with it.

    I hope this helps.

  • Rock Holly

    And that is why you are saying to contact support so if I am to travel to Europe and need to know how to set this they might be able to help me with this?

    Thank you

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    They might be able to, but you'll have to check with them. I hope this
    helps.

    The all new RoadTrip is now available on our site: http://ow.ly/1Jjbt. Get one while they remain in stock if you like, I know they won't last long.

  • Sm118

    i am not sure if it is just my location but i just returned this exact model due to horrible audio quality, if you are looking for something to charge with the rare fm transmitter function then go ahead and buy this otherwise look for something else

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    Sorry you trouble. Did you contact our customer service department?

  • Kossac

    Hey have are u doing? im just investigating the usability of this device and i was wondering ::
    Does it have a built in battery for itself so that you dont have to have it on the charge to use it?,
    Can this model run of the power of the ipod/iphone?
    How strong is the signal?
    How much bass is there?
    ie (and i know this is hard to answer) but honestly what do u think the audio quality is like??

    Also wondering if there is a new model coming out, and what features that will have?
    If u have a model that has a battery in it? and yeh :P :P

    Thanks muchly for your time, hope this helps alot of people out, other than just me :) .

    Peace

    I always get bad reception on these things.

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    Sorry to hear that. Some markets have more crowded airwaves.

    Hit the Menu button. The Preferences screen should come up with two options Reset and Options. Press and hold the far left button that corresponds with “Reset” after a few seconds Reset will change the US, press the button again to cycle through the different region modes US, EU(Europe), JP(Japan). There is no generic international mode on this model.

    Hate to disagree, but there are a couple of low power FM stations at 87.9.  New licenses are not being issued, but the older ones are honored.

    That doesnt help Dave. I was told per FCC regulation your device does not have an international mode any longer. However, 87.9 is a legal US frequency yet I cannot access that station either. Please let me know if there is a way to solve this issue. Otherwise, unfortunately your product has become a huge disapointment.

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    Great to hear back from you Cody. I just realized my previous reply was from a year ago.

    Did you speak to someone in our support department?

  • lolly pop

    it can conect to your car and play your music

  • Shattefoot

    Who cares if its not allowed..it can be put in international mode into frequencies below 88.1. You may not be able to tell us exactly how. Since I’m not owned nor do I fear any monkey that says “this is not allowed”. Here’s a link on how to do it.   http://www.ehow.com/how_7483793_enable-international-mode-itrip-autopilot.html  If it is not allowed maybe it shouldn’t be an option..IDIOTS!!!!
