Performance

I ordered the Griffin RoadTrip FM Transmitter And Charger For iPod And iPod Mini for use with my Video iPod in my car, since the factory installed radio in my car does not have an auxiliary input to hook up an iPod directly. Unfortunately the RoadTrip does not seem to be powerful enough, as there is static when listening to the iPod. It is like listening to an AM radio station. I tried several radio stations, but was unable to find a single station, where this didn't occur. When you have an iPod you come to expect excellent sound quality and unfortunately, the RoadTrip doesn't deliver. Also, when using the RoadTrip you have to have the volume on the Radio set very loud to hear the sound coming from the iPod, so when you turn off the RoadTrip or change radio stations the sound is loud. Overall I would not recommend the RoadTrip and I'm already looking to return the one I purchased.

I have used the Griffin dock FM transmitter for almost 4 years now. I am on my 2nd transmitter after recently breaking my 1st one (all my fault because I'm a clutz lol). I was so satisfied the first time around that I didn't have to waste time researching - I just bought another. For me, the sound quality is excellent, and I love being able to take it with me into rental cars and such. Also, it's fantastic to be able to use the transmitter inside through my computer, projecting to my stereo. Sounds great inside too! And on top of all that it is very user-friendly. Highly recommended.
