Griffin iTrip for nano
- Unique design, Ease of Use
- Some distortion in different environments
An excellent option for iPod nano owners, the iTrip combines ease of use with a unique design.
Price$ 89.95 (AUD)
Griffin's iTrip has been redesigned to suit the popular iPod nano and the result is an excellent FM transmitter that is easy to use and functions without any major problems. Its unique design ensures your iPod clips firmly into the iTrip without adding any considerable bulk to an already pencil-thin portable music player.
The iTrip has a number of excellent and convenient features, but one of the best is its design. It doesn't add much length or width to the nano, so you can use it without having to worry about a large or bulky accessory attached to it. You simply slide the nano into the dock, attaching it with the headphone jack, and the iTrip sits behind, hidden from view. The iTrip also includes a mini-USB connector on the bottom of the unit and a status light on the front.
The iTrip uses the iPod nano LCD display combined with an intuitive three way navigational wheel for operation. The screen displays the current frequency selected and you move the jog wheel to change frequencies and press it in to make a selection. To program a station of your choice, you simply press the switch to show the FM frequency, move the wheel up or down to navigate to the frequency that you want and then press the switch again to lock in your selection. The iTrip will also remember the last three stations that you've used and you can select any of these as a preset.
The make or break factor when it comes to these units is sound quality. Generally, transmitting sounds over FM frequencies is unstable but we were extremely pleased that we encountered no major issues with the iTrip during testing. We did experience some slight dropout in transmission when driving in busy areas, but this is common for FM transmitters. Overall, the iTrip worked very well and sounded above average for most part during testing.
There are a number of settings that can be adjusted on the iTrip including mono or stereo broadcasting, a general purpose equaliser, auto play and SmartSense technology. The latter detects whether the volume of your iPod is too high and adjusts it accordingly to keep your music playing without any distortion. Of course, you can still control the volume level yourself using the iPod nano click wheel.
Overall, the iTrip for nano is an excellent option if you are looking for an FM transmitter that is easy to use and doesn't add much bulk to an already ultra compact iPod nano.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
