    • I wouldn't be able to stand having to deal with the radio all the time. I have had a rotation of 6-7 CDs in my car for as long as I've had it because I haven't bothered to put any more in there.

        • When you're having an awesome morning and some woman pulls out in front of you, cuts across oncoming traffic, you slam on your brakes and your laptop flies into your dashboard.

                Not if you don't have a cassette player, which neither of the cars I've had does or did.

                They also seem to break very easily. My brother went through two of them in less than a year, while my iTrip has been going strong for a year and a half now. (knocks on wood.)

                    It's a radio tuner type thing that you plug into your iPod. It runs off the iPod's battery (or if it's like mine, you can plug it into a car charger) and tune it to an empty radio station, and play your iPod over your car radio.

                      Is it pretty consistent? I've heard it's pretty hit-or-miss but that was a few years ago when the tech was new.

                        hey don't hate. yeah my system and car is a little.. outdated. besides the wire getting easily frayed, it's not too bad.

                          Mine works extremely well and is generally crystal clear. I tried one before this that you had to connect to your car charger and it was staticy as all hell...I took it back and got this one and it's been amazing.

                          You just need to find a radio station (use tune) that doesn't have anything on it and it works great. The worst that happens is you'll occasionally get some interference from other drivers, but it's really rare and unless your stuck following one closely, only lasts a couple seconds.

                          I highly recommend it. Mine was about $60 and is a middle tier one I'd say, but works great for me.

                            No hate intended...my first car was a beat up old Chevy that was probably one of the first cars to come with a factory CD player in the 90s. Didn't have a tape deck.

                            • itrip looks like a great little device for $20, I think I'll do that.

                              • those radio transmitters suck in a lot of cars. you really have to be cautious. I would search for reviews on sites to see if people mention the car they drive.


                                or you could just invest in a stereo that has an auxiliary input.
