Griffin iTrip LCD FM transmitter for iPOD (3G/4G/Photo iPods) is £14.89 or less delivered from Sendit.com

By far the cheapest deal for this transmitter although has dropped only 10p in price since the deal was first posted in August.

FM transmitters allow you to play your music wirelessly through any FM radio this means you can listen to ALL the songs on your iPod in the car or on a home stereo, without the clutter of wires.

Description : The new iTrip sports a large, easy to read backlit LCD screen to make setting its digital tuner easy and intuitive. A handy knob on the side of the iTrip makes it a breeze to select broadcast frequency and it remembers its settings for convenience. This compact, self-contained design makes changing stations a snap, perfect for use on the go. The new iTrip features volume enhancements, as well, with an auto volume control that works with the iPod's volume level to automatically avoid distortion. If the iPod volume is set too high, iTrip recognizes and corrects it by lowering the volume to its optimum level, assuring clean, clear, dynamic sound.

Features: Built-in antenna, Frequencies: 88.1-107.9MHz, Frequency response: 50Hz to 15KHz, Operating range: 10-30 ft, No batteries required

Slight disclaimer on this item for those interested...

"The iTrip LCD is not compatible with the iPod Mini. This product does not work with the 5G iPod or iPod nano or iPod 30GB"

If you are not sure what generation your iPod is then have a look at the following page...

The one pictured there doesn't work with newer iPods, any sold in the last 18 months or so. There are plenty of others that do.

We had one of these (for about double the price) and it was close to useless for us.

Don't get me wrong, it worked fine. As long as we were not moving. Works fine on the stereo in the house and fine in the car. But as soon as we drove a few miles away from home, the signal of a radio station close to the frequency we were broadcasting on got strong enough to override the iTrip. We experimented with virtually every possible frequency and had no luck. On a trip from London to Oxford, we even tried removing the aerial from the car and the signals from radio stations were still strong enough to overcome it.

This may all be because we live in the London area. I should imagine the dial is a lot more cluttered in and around big cities than it would be in the Cornish countryside (for instance) and it may well work fine there.

The upshot of it was, we requested a refund and were told that we'd had the product for more than 28 days, so there was nothing they could do. We ended up writing letters, making phone calls until they eventually agreed to refund us, after we argued that the item "wasn't fit for the purpose it was designed for".

It's also worth bearing in mind that FM transmitters like this are technically illegal to use in the UK (unless the law has changed recently). Sorry officer! :prop:

My advice would be, if you want one, get one, but make sure you give it a really good test and experiment with different frequencies to see if it will work in your area. Don't get your hopes up though if you live in a city. If you can't get it working, return within 28 days to save hassle.

If you can't get it working, be prepared to spend more money to get it wired into your car properly. Either that or, If you're good with this sort of stuff, you could probably fit a switch to turn off the signal coming from the aerial entirely.

I have this very one, bought in August when this was orignally posted. Obviously your not going to get superb sound quality, but it works very well for me, and not had any problems with other broadcasts, however I do live in suffolk though where there is less radio stations I guess.

Backward britain takes a decade to reverse a law instated in 1949, isn't it wonderful.

Hopefully there will be competition on these next year so prices fall, as these are $10 in america.

Well there you go then - I thought it was possibly a "London thing".
