iTrip Auto Universal Plus broadcasts your MP3 or other portable music player to your car's FM radio.

iTrip. It’s not just for iPod anymore.

iTrip is a large family of products with a distinguished heritage. All iTrips send your music wirelessly to your FM radio so you can listen through your own speakers.

We call this particular iTrip “auto” because it gets its power from your vehicle’s 12 volt accessory outlet. And we call it “universal” because it works with almost any portable audio device that has a standard 1/8” headphone jack (whether CD, MP3, cassette, or, yes, iPod).

And the “Plus” in this iTrip’s name refers to its built-in USB port, through which you can charge your portable player. (Check your player’s documentation for USB charging capability.)

Plug in your player’s USB charging cable. Not only do you get to listen to your tunes while you’re traveling, you arrive with a fully-charged player.

Customer Review by: tdailey on February 18th, 2012

Previous iTrips I have used have normally worn out or the cord has broken, etc.. This one though I have been using for a few months and it's been working pretty well. Compared to other transmitters, I've always found that the itrip normally has less static. If you are using it with an ipod/iphone, just note that it does not come with a usb cable to charge it.

Out of all of the FM transmitters I've used this one is one of the best. It has smartscan, (which I don't actually use) but works well to find a good open station. Also, it minimizes the static sound that you get. The only downside to this iTrip, is that it does not charge the iPhone 4. It will charge the 3GS just fine, just not the iPhone 4.
