Cool features but inconsistent quality.
on October 11, 2011
This iTrip is sleek and nice. However, I find that the transmitter is not very powerful. My antenna would pick up other cars' tune or radio station's who frequency is set too close or is same as what I have. These pickups overpowers the transmitter's broadcast. I had to find a really clear and uncommon frequency to use, and it's been decent.
Also, the volume is not as good as I'd like. It's about 3 bars lower than my car's CD player and Radio.\
These two issues were my main ones, and I came close to replacing it with a Monster alternative, which I used in the past. But since I got to be become manageable, I'm getting used to it.
I do like the controls it comes with.
On that note, my car shows song info (including those of radio station's) info on LCD; it tries to replicate what the transmitter sends, but seems to get stuck and displays inconsistent and incomplete titles and etc. This could just be a compatibility issue though.
