iTrip Auto has a new look, still just as useful


Word “got out” a few days ago that Griffin has revised its iTrip line of FM transmitters for the iPod. First up was the iTrip Universal, which, shockingly, works with any device with a 3.5mm audio jack. Second up is the iTrip Auto, which is being showed off right now at IFA in Berlin.

Griffin says it’s been redesigned from “the ground up,” which is fair to say. That is, it looks really different than the previous model.

The functionality is largely the same: you hook it up to your iPod, then it transmits The Game’s LAX (“Bulletproof Diaries” is the best West Coast hip hop song in quite some time) or whatever to your car’s stereo while simultaneously charging your iPod.

If you have a car and an iPod this is probably the iTrip to get.

She should start showing up in stores in next month for around $60.
