iTrip aid

Since local radio stations don’t play the music I like, I have come to rely on my iPod. Problem is I HATE my iTrip. It works infrequently and the reception is awful. What is everyone else using?

WDET comes closest to my music variety but the news is on during my drive times. I may be one of the most up to date 26 yr olds in the Metro Detroit for the all the news I listen to and read. But sometimes I just want some tunes…

    Why don’t you pull in the music via the internet, and save it as an MP3 file for your IPOD.

    I like to listen to all sorts of goofy music out in Europe and really strange places like Calif-Ornia.

    Or better yet, get the PNY-Vibe (1 gig) which has a built-in FM receiver, which you can record into the memory and listen to at your leisure… It also has a built in mike to covertly record and blackmail your enemies with…

    IPODs… sheesh… how passe’

    Try turning the volume down all the way on your i-pod and turning the volume on your car speakers all the way up.

    I have also heard that if you have a manual car antenna, putting it down helps to cut back on interference.

    Or, you could just get XM or Sirius.

    Yea, tried the volume thing. Doesn’t work. And I don’t have a manual antenna. I am using griffith technology (i believe) anyone had better luck with another company’s product?

    I also use my ipod for tunes while driving around in Detroit. I have an itrip as well, and have no problem getting my songs to come in. I have the best luck using channels on the lower end of the spectrum. For instance, I use 89.5, and have the ipod volume at about 60%.

    Good luck
