I have finally mastered the art of iTrip, and there was much rejoicing.
The first couple endeavors did not go well, but I went and find and read the extended instructions on the site and managed to figure it out. Yeah, even this geek-girl has to RTFM sometimes.
I do encourage them to make a quicktime video and put it on the site and on the CD-ROM for us visual folks since visual cues from the LED on the iTrip is very important. Sometimes written stuff isn’t enough to explain WHAT rapid blinking looks like versus three blinks.
Does it work? Hell yeah. Like a charm.
Placement in the car has been interesting. I want a non-install option for keeping it in the car and at hand, but close to the radio. The truck needs to have it really close sometimes to get a good signal.
So, I picked up one of these for each car at Best Buy since we both have open compartments under our radios in both cars. If I go in someone else’s car, I can take the pad with me. And it keeps it right next to the radio for best signal.
I will say I was hesitant about the sticky pad, but it does seem to work just fine. I turned a sharp corner and had my hand out to secure if it moved an inch, but it didn’t. Until I find a better solution to have it more in view, that will work and it’s much cheaper at the $4.99 I got it for than anything else will be at this point.
