    Firmware 2 + Pandora Radio + Griffin iTrip Auto = t3h r0xor!

    Well, I finally went and got my hands on Griffin's latest "iTrip" FM transmitter. After nearly a year without a FM transmitter on my iPhone - because of all the "GSM buzz" interference - I was happy to be able to listen to my iPhone in the car again.

    After playing a couple MP3's to see if I got any interference when using the Griffin, I decided I'd really push the limits and start checking my email. Still, no interference. Sweet!

    To make things even more challenging, I brought up Pandora Radio and selected one of my stations. Even on EDGE - after a few seconds it started playing and streaming through the car stereo the whole way home. Sweet!

    Anyway, I posted this for a specific reason -- the Griffin unit that I bought wasn't the one I had initially set out to buy. I had intended to buy the "iTrip AutoPilot" - 4046-TRPAUTO (http://www.griffintechnology.com/pro...tripautopilot). I wanted this one because it was the first that I could find that actually claimed it would be compatible with the iPhone. I was hoping it would be the first to cope with that awful GSM buzz.

    However, what I ended up with was the "iTrip Auto" at BestBuy - part number 4045-TRPAUTOS. I wasn't paying close enough attention, and just grabbed it off the shelf and left the store. Sure enough, this one isn't listed as "officially" iPhone compatible. But when I plugged it in, I didn't get any GSM buzz at all, and haven't yet. So it works well enough for me!

    In retrospect, I did get the "This accessory is not made for ... do yo want airplane mode?" prompt when I plugged it in. So maybe that's what the difference is between the two models. But if you can't find the "4046" in your store - you can feel confident in giving the "4045" a try. I can't guarantee that it would solve GSM buzz in all possible cars ... but it did in mine, and I've tried a bunch of FM transmitters and they've all suffered from this.

    Very happy (as always) with the quality of Griffin stuff.

    So you did all of this without putting it in airplane mode right? Like when the pop-up came up you just said no?
