    I just bought this yesterday and am incredibly disappointed. It didn't work wellin the car, nor did it work well in the house. The sound is just terrible.

    Now, is it just me? Has anyone else used this and had it work well?

    I had one aftermarket one that was terrible ... then I got the Giffin (spell) one and it works very well, both in the house and in the car.

    SHIT! Really? Mine is the Griffin one.

    The dude told me that it's tougher to get a nice signal in the big city. Do you live in a big city? Is that why mine isn't working too well?

    there's a thread on this somewhere..i think the consensus was that the Monster transmitter was the best. But also ~$70.

    I'm in the OC ...So our airwaves are packed tight getting signals from both LA and San Diego.

    Did you fuck around with diffrent stations ?? We just used that blank one 87.9 I think ...

    I can hand it to people in the back seat and let them pick shit and it wont get bad ... also at home keep it on the coffee table and it still works.

    I have heard diffrent things on this from diffrent people, its not Ipod sound ... it sounds like its a radio station.

    Did you watch the volume of the pod ?? i guess its best set between 50 and 70 % ... get above that and it sounds like shit !!!!

    Yeah, I live in chicago, mine is fuzzy sometimes. There is never an extremly
    clear sound from it, but it is not horrible. I always use 87.9, which ever is
    furthest away from a live radiostation will work the best.

    Thanks for the tips, guys. I'm gonna make sure I use the volume correctly and try 87.9. I just hope I can return it if it doesn't get any better.

    ^And is hella cheaper. Only downside to that is that you've gotta have the ipod vol. between 70-90, which wastes batteries like mad.

    if you have a decent after market stereo in your car you should have auxilary inputs. Either do it yourself or pay a place like circuit city to run a line that is rca males on one end and 1/8" male on the other end intot he back of your stereo. Thats the set up I put in my truck. I get perfecto sound quality, keep the volume on the ipod around 50% or so and let the stereo do the work making things louder. You can also do the same thing in your home with the exact same cable hooked up to your stereo.

    i've had my itrip for two and a half years. It has worked well. Sure, occassionally it'll start picking up some other signal or fuzz a little bit, but for the most part it sounds good enough.

    i got the belkin one for free. i mean if you can find a good station that isn't getting a signal it is decent. it does the job. but usually as you drive you pick up different signals and the quality will change. i want to drop a new radio in my car, but i am making sure that it has an adapter to run the ipod in.
