    I have the Griffin Road Trip with Smart Scan...works great with my older 2G and my new 3GS...i like the base quite a bit and it charges the phone...some of the reviews on Amazon are poor due to it's performance on congested FM areas like those in larger cities.

    Cheers.

    Griffin Auto Pilot This one!

    It works excellent once you open up the other frequencies like 87.9

    Works with any ipod that I have. Also works for My Iphone 3g

    Hard to say...it comes with plastic "tips" that fit a few different types of pods and iphone and 3G/S...maybe with one of the fatter tips...but I doubt it.

    Cheers.

    That's what I was afraid you'd say. Thank you, though! (Maybe I need a slider case after all...)

    I picked up the Griffin iTrip AutoPilot on saturday. I had an older belkin (hated it).

    The Griffin iTrip AutoPilot works flawlessly with the 3G S, the play/pause , skip fwd and back all work.

    One minor annoyance. Every time you start the car, it scans for an open frequency and doesn't hold on to the frequency you used last (you have to go into presets and manually put it on your favourite channel).

    Mine worked great. The only problem that I have with it is that the LCD that lets you chose the station went out. Granted I did leave it in the car on a very hot day. I've broke many LCDs that way.

    It has never had a problem charging my 3G I can't speak for a 3GS.

    I'd ordered the deal extreme one a few months back. I received a defective unit.

    Their customer services is bar-none, the worst ever. It took me multiple contacts to even get an return authorization #. Now I'm fighting to get the credit given to me. They're claiming to not have received it. I would avoid them on anything not 1 or 2 bucks.

    The Satechi device mentioned above ROCKS. And, their support has been fantastic!. That's the route I'd go.
