If you have the capability on your stereo, go for a direct inline adapter. (Sorry, I don't have a link...) These provide standard L/R stereo jacks that you can mount in your dash, or let dangle out the bottom like most people. Then you can plug your iPod in directly with a simple adapter from Radio Shack. Reply 3 of 10 bspears Posts: 147member January 20, 2004 10:31AM iTrip works well. The only complaint I have is that sometimes it is a little difficult to pick a new freq to use if you need to. Sometimes it takes two or three tries before it goes thru. Once the freq is chosen it works well.bob Reply 4 of 10 ebby Posts: 3,110member January 20, 2004 12:07PM I had no big problems with mine. It took a few commutes to find the best station to use and to tweak the placement/volume settings. If the bass is too high, you can use the iPod's built-in equalizers to lower it.

If you still have a cassette player in your car, get the Sony adapter, avoid RadioShack as it does not have a feedback mechanism that tells modern radios w/tape seek/scan that there's a tape playing.For me, since I travel and have to use rental cars that primarily come equipped with CD Players, the iTrip is a godsend. That and the fact it doesn't interfere with chargers and other connecting devices is also good. Reply 6 of 10 amorph Posts: 7,112member January 20, 2004 1:37PM Over to Digital Hub we go...

But "Current Hardware Discussion of all current Apple and third-party hardware." isn't the iTrip 3rd party hardware? Reply 8 of 10 maccrazy Posts: 2,658member January 21, 2004 5:16AM What about the belkin charger for the Car or are there better ones. the perosn who said belkin suck, ipodandimac, is this all their products or just the iTrip.

Reply 10 of 10 bka77 Posts: 331member January 21, 2004 10:14AM It took me a while to find the right channel. After one month of testing different channels I found the best station and it works good for my usual 100 km trips whithout the need to change the station.Quote:Originally posted by MiMac Theres also a Modification you can do to it to boost the power. Has anybody opened the iTrip, maybee there is a similar way of boosting the power? Sign In or Register to comment.
