    I've currently got a 3G 15gb iPod, a 'plain' iTrip, and a 12v charger. I'm going to Ireland in June, so I'm thinking of getting a 30gb 5G because 1, my current battery life is around 3 hours, 2, I need something to store the photos I take on, and 3, it would be nice to be able to watch a movie on it.

    I also do a lot of volunteer work in an area where there are ZERO good radio stations. So, I use the charger and iTrip to supply music. However, the way I understand it, I won't be able to use my current iTrip (the one that plugs into the top of the iPod) with a new 5G. What transmitter WILL work? I'm very happy with the quality of my iTrip so I hate to give it up, but if I must I must. Also I'd like to save $20 and be able to use my current 12v charger (just a plane jane rig that looks like a phone charger, 12v on one end, dock connector on the other).

    So, what do i need? :confused:

    thanks!

    Right. Apple took away the old remote connector.
    There is a new iTrip that attaches to the dock connector.

    Your old charger will probably still work, the dock connector hasn't changed much.

    So that new iTrip has a dock connector slot on the bottom of it, so you can charge while using the xmitter?

    No :( You could use a more generic style of transmitter like the Belkin one if you want to do that.

    :( is right.....I guess that Belkin one wouldn't be too bad...my 12v cord is the one that can power it. The TuneBase looks cool, but not for $80. Hmm
