I use one a Tunecast

I have seen them on several shop shelves in Shepparton recently. Harvey Norman was one.

Several places are advertising them on the net and Belkins page lists resellers.

They are fantastic. Price isn't bad either.

I have the Belkin one which is pretty crappy in my opinion, Low power, means lots of interference. I will be directly connecting via stacker input instead.

Road Trip.

This baby charges & transmits, and has an LED read out of the freq., which you can simply change at the push of a button.

It accepts all iPods up to 4th. Gen, iPod Photo, iPod Video, iPod Mini & Nano.

How does it perform Wolfie.
Is it close to CD quality sound, or still prone to pops and hisses?

Agree with Wolfie,

Road Trip.

Clear sound, no pops and hiss, high range transmitter, plenty of mounting options, way to go.

I have broken 3 Griffin itrips now- They are held on by the tiny headphone jack and this joint often takes the full weight of the ipod on corrugations- it doesnt take long to break. That said, I recall they did have more power than most of the other transmitters available which is why I have purchased more than one now.

Can't recall the brand of one i have but i have the 60GB IPOD video and they dont have the slot at the top that the older IPODs have so many of the FM modulators don't work.

The device i bought plugs inot the bottom of it and then the cable runs back to the device which is plugged inot the 12 volt socket. this acts as both a charging point and the FM.

The unit has a purple display and you just dial up the frequency, i have it set on 88.7 and it works better than any of the ones i tried on the wifes older IPOD the plugged inot the top of it.

Of course disadvantage is i can't easily connect up to mates steroes and stuff at peoples house if i want to.

I bought the FM from the APple shop and at the time it was the only one avaialbe for the 60GB video that powered it as well as transmitted.

The ones that plug in at the top i found drain the battery on a long trip very quickly.

I keep mine in the car all the time now and don't bother with CD's in the stacker any more.

Hi,

I gave this answer in another forum as it seems to come up quite a bit. I bought this:

extreme airplay

but think you are on the right track.

I am finding my daughter users the extreme more than me but am now looking at getting one of these:

transpod

for the car for me.

Regards

Graham
