    the iTrip, uhh works with all channels some static (all i believe do unless you direct plug into stereo) Uses iPod battery which is a plus. Thats all i really have to say about it i guess.

    i bought mine for $40 from circuit city but i found those on ebay for $10

    even if u bought from ebay and it's broken u can always sent it to belkin for a free replacement.

    I use the itrip with a cigerette lighter charger on the other end. So I never run out of juice.I have had no problems. I did run it once with no charger and it drained quick (6 hours) the reception gets worse as the power dies as well. But with that charger, I even drive a hundred ton coal hauler and have to wear ear plugs and I still hear it real good. It only cost me 24.95. My two cents. ---zen-->

    If you go for the cheaper ones though, read a couple reviews beforehand~

    if your ipod is 3G OR 4G OR 5TH GENERATION does it matter what your fm transmitter is? im asking because in ebay i sometimes see "fm transmitter for 3rd generation" does it really matter? i mean i own a 5th gen ipod video 30gb if i buy a transmitter that says its for 3g wont it work? is the monster i carplay compatible for my ipod? thanks

    i think if u buy though specifily(like istuff, itrip) for ipod then though generation crap matters, but if u're buying for general mp3 player it works on all of ipods.
