If I use it in Montreal, I will end up hearing static within the music - almost every channel is used so it's hard to find a clear sound - but if I go anywhere outside the city it works. The one thing, though, is that it takes all the battery. And while you're driving, you may enter in an area where the channel you chose is used for a radio station. It's good for small distances or living rooms. I usually plug my iPod on the charger and at the same time use my iTrip on my stereo. But still, it's far from perfect! I don't like it. Bad idea. They really have to work on that gadget.

Yeah, FM tuners can be tricky, especially if you live in a major urban area where most of the stations are filled. People that live in rural areas seem to rave about iTrip and other tuners...perhaps it's one of those gadgets that's not for everyone.

I heard bad things about the iTrip for vid. too. Maybe not iTrip, but FM tuners in general.

I love the Nuvi- I traveled for work for ages with one of these- small enough to fit into a pocket and always right on directions. So so so much better than the older model (Quest 2) I had before it as it's so quick to calculate directions and recalculate when I go the wrong way. I just worry that the Nuvi voice will get mad at me for disobeying.

I hate my iTrip! I don't know if a new one has come out, but if you have the video iPod, you have to get the iTrip with the dock connecter that plugs into the bottom. The problem I have is that the iSkin I have on my iPod makes it hard for the Itrip to fit in securely and it goes to static if you accidently nudge it at all. Also, since the dock connecter model is digital, it won't go below 88.1 FM, which is where you will get the best audio quality because those stations are use less frequently; I have to put the antenna down in my car every time I use it...I think there are much better FM transmitters out than this one.

I love my Griffin I Trip but I have the one that plugs into the lighter because the one above KILLS your battery on your Ipod the one that plugs into the lighter actually charges your battery it's way better!
