Do you or have you ever driven in or around London? Griffin iTrip = Bad reception and poor sound quality. In my opinion a waste of money. Am currently seeking other alternatives (not that there are many). Still I'm not going to pay Honda £ 300 odd to fit a cable where i cant choose my songs through the radio!!! Honda really need to sort this out !!This all seems to be a rather unwieldy approach to integrating an iPod into ones Civic. What's wrong with an FM transmitter e.g. Griffin iTrip? At approx £29.00. not an expensive solution. It doesn't have 'through charging' I admit but other similar devices e.g. Airplay2 do. There are allegations that their sound quality is poor but against the backround noises of a moving car that is less important. I have several years experience using an iTrip mini with no real problems.
(2.2 Civic CDTi ES on order.)
Cheap option, but not necessarily the best.No the best option is....
Lotsa MP3 CDs!
Have done the MP3 CD route too, how ever most songs I have are a mixture of mp3/m4p which can be frustrating to separate out (and I can not be a***d to convert them either).The quality between an FM modulator and a cassette insert on my previous car was VERY noticable.
I would recommend doing a side by side comparison of the FM modulator with an MP3 CD.
I often get the same first track in a random sequence with Playlist 8, but subsequent tracks are different.I've noticed recently that when I use disc 8 to put the iPod in shuffle mode, I get the same song every time.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Yes, that is exactly what I get. Oh well, I guess its just a feature.I often get the same first track in a random sequence with Playlist 8, but subsequent tracks are different.
I think there seems to be a pattern in that each time I sync the iPod with my PC, the first random track changes. This suggests the randomisation for Playlist 8 is using some kind of seed related to the previous sync.
Hi Stype_GTHave done the MP3 CD route too, how ever most songs I have are a mixture of mp3/m4p which can be frustrating to separate out (and I can not be a***d to convert them either).
MP3 CD does sound better / clearer / louder but carrying around CD's does annoy me somewhat.
Anyways have found a little place in Watford which can fit and ipod cable (and still give me functionality through the radio) for £200 odd.
Will let all know how it goes. (fitting next Tuesday).
Hi Brett,Hi Stype_GT
Did you get anywhere with this? I know the post is old, but I would like to know if and how well the solution worked and what it was please
