"Pathetic Performance"1.0 starson by sallenmd
Pros: Easy to tune, full range of frequencies
Cons: needs to be positioned perfectly and inches from antenna
Summary: I generally liked this unit's predecessor, but found its playlist-based tuning to be a pain. So I bought this one. I am sorely disappointed. This unit is pathetic. There is so much interference and its signal is far too weak. It does improve markedly when the iPod is powered by the cigarette lighter. But I bought this unit to function on its own, without requiring external power. It is useless in that regard. Better to buy Monster's combination charger/transmitter that can also be used with a Nano. It actually works, providing vastly better sound than this does. It sounds better than the iTrip even when the iTrip is used in conjunction with external power. The Monster's only drawback is its limited frequency range. This iTrip is a complete waste of money. I can only hope that my retailer will refund my money.
