Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today announced its new, pocket-sized FM transmitter for iPod, iTrip Pocket, is now available and shipping.
The appropriately named iTrip Pocket brings all the functionality users have come to expect from the iTrip product family, plus some innovative new features, in a new, smaller form factor.
iTrip Pocket lets iPod users listen over the FM radio in their car, without encumbering wires. Barely bigger than the dock connector it plugs into, iTrip Pocket is designed to perfectly match the profile of the 2nd generation iPod nano, though it also works with other dock connector iPod models. iTrip Pocket broadcasts the audio signal from the user's iPod to any user-selected FM frequency, sharing the music with the whole car.
As with previous iTrip models, setup is a simple 1-2-3-step process: 1. Find an unused FM station on your car radio; 2. Tune iTrip to the same frequency; 3. Enjoy your music, free from the tyranny of headphones. New with iTrip Pocket are 3 user-definable Preset Buttons that make it even more convenient to pre-select open FM frequencies and call them back at the touch of a button... a useful feature in metropolitan areas with competing radio stations crowding the dial.
And, as with previous iTrip models, iTrip Pocket features Griffin's exclusive SmartDisplay Technology that shows frequency information directly on the screen of the user's iPod, and switchable stereo/mono modes that ensure a strong, clear signal and clear sound under real-world conditions.

Sized and shaped to fit seamlessly with 2nd generation iPod nano
Also works with 5th generation iPod with video, 1st generation iPod nano, and 4th generation iPod
Griffin exclusive SmartDisplay Technology that shows frequency information directly on the screen of your iPod
