iTrip AutoPilot - Finally for iPhone
I have the iTrip for my trusty iPod, but have been waiting impatiently for Griffin to develop one for my iPhone, which is constantly running down the battery. Like its sibling, the new iTrip product allows users to play AND control iPhone or iPod while charging its battery. iTrip sends the music wirelessly to a car's FM radio so the user can listen through the car's stereo speakers. Ta da!
SmartScan technology makes it easy to find the best three radio frequencies, then saves them automatically as presets for easy recall. If you're lucky enough to have a newer model car, RDS technology shows song information on RDS-enabled car radio displays.
With AutoPilot playback control, the set of controls are right up front on the power adapter that you plug into your cigarette lighter, and as the adapter features illuminated symbols for Play/Pause and Track Forward/Backward button controls, it's a snap to use. After a little practice you won't even have to look down since you hear a satisfying little "click" when you've switched controls.
$99 at Griffin, and worth every cent.
