iTrip Pocket for iPod
Griffin Technology today announced its new, pocket-sized FM transmitter for iPod: its new iTrip Pocket now available and shipping, brings all the functionality as other products in the iTrip family as well as a few innovative new features--in a new, smaller form-factor. iTrip Pocket lets iPod users listen over the FM radio in their car, without encumbering wires. Barely bigger than the dock connector it plugs into, iTrip Pocket is designed to perfectly match the profile of the 2nd generation iPod nano, though it also works with other dock connector iPod models. iTrip Pocket broadcasts the audio signal from the user's iPod to any user-selected FM frequency, sharing the music with the whole car. iTrip Pocket FM Transmitter for iPod (4042-NTRPDA) is priced at $50.
"As with previous iTrip models, setup is a simple 1-2-3-step process: 1. Find an unused FM station on your car radio; 2. Tune iTrip to the same frequency; 3. Enjoy your music, free from the tyranny of headphones," the company said. "New with iTrip Pocket are 3 user-definable Preset Buttons that make it even more convenient to pre-select open FM frequencies and call them back at the touch of a button... a useful feature in metropolitan areas with competing radio stations crowding the dial."
As with previous iTrip models, iTrip Pocket features Griffin's exclusive SmartDisplay Technology that shows frequency information directly on the screen of the user's iPod, and switchable stereo/mono modes that ensure a strong, clear signal and clear sound under real-world conditions.
Although the iTrip Pocket is sized and shaped to fit seamlessly with second-generation iPod nano, it also works with fifth-generation iPod with video, first-generation iPod nano, and fourth-generation iPod. It supports both stereo/mono modes and other innovations for strong signal and clear sound.
