Advantages: charges Ipod and transmits to car radio with ease
Disadvantages: re-tuning on the motorway (wait till you can stop)!!!
Recently I got a new car that doesn't have a aux plug and so i couldn't use my Ipod. I was a bit upset but started to live without it. One of my Christmas pressents was this transmitter and I thought it's a good idea but will it actually work. Well I've been using it everyday since and it works fine. On one longer trip I had to change the setting once, but that is hardly a down point! I have a rather long drive everyday and it works without the need to adjust which is great!
One end goes into the car charger / or cig lighter and the other into the Ipod. The Ipod charges the whole time it id connected which is an added bonus. You need to tune the radio to be on the same station as the transmitter and the best ones are usually thoes with a blank station on either side. So if you manually flick through stations wait until you find three blank ones and use the one in the middle. The instructions say it is hardest to tune in built up areas like cities, but I live very close to London and have no trouble.
In the shops the Itrip sells anywhere from £9.95 to £19.99 depending on the model, colour and shape. Mine is the cheaper end and works just fine so I wouldn't worry that you need to spend a lot to get a good product.
Summary: easy to use and I get all my music at my fingertips
