New Griffin iTrip
Griffin Technology announced Friday redesigned version of its for the iPod. The new version adds a backlit LCD display, a dial to adjust broadcast frequency, and selectable LX or DX modes. According to the accessory maker, the DX mode delivers a noise level "below that of a cassette tape adapter, allowing the music to punch through cleanly." Additionally, the new device allows users to choose between "US" or "International" modes. International mode enables users to select all available frequencies, rather than the standard United States frequency set. A new auto-volume feature helps prevent distortion by adjusting the volume accordingly. The iTrip is immediately available for $50.
