Want an iTrip. Are they really better than the in car casette adaptor? I've read some reviews and some people cant get them to work?

Anyone know where I can get them in the UK? Can't find them on www.apple.com/ukstore

transmits a radio signal from your iPod into your cars FM radio. It picks up the waves. Its kinda like a CD autochanger, without the CD's, and 1050 songs

I'm sorry but it's so crap. But maybe that's coz i just don't know how to use it. Well, anyways, I didn't set the tuner and i think it was 87.6 - which was the set tuner. I tuned into that and had to put my ipod literally close to the radio for it to produce a good sound. And it bugs me because they have these '100.1, etc' as my songs, so when it plays it's basically just weird beeping noises.

imo, the cassette adapters have better sound. I've heard iTrips also suck the juice right out of your battery, so it's best to use them when your iPod is plugged in.

I wish I had a cassette, but it's a CD (i never thought I'd be saying that )

I bought the charger from apple, 35 quid, and another 35 of some other site for the trip. It better be good

my boyfriend had one and it SUCKED. every station was staticky. it was so bad that we didn't even bother listening to it in the car. i don't think it's very good if you live between two cities.

for christmas, i bought him an alpine receiver with the ipod adapter. the sound quality is AMAZING. the only complaint is that it takes forever to scroll through all the artists, so it's best to have lots of playlists. supposedly, alpine will come out with receivers that are "ipod friendly" and scroll through just like ipods do.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
