    Don't see why not. I think the AutoTrip was "Made for iPhone" so it would be silly of Apple to change the communication protocol so the AutoTrip (and every other device which uses audio from the dock connector) stops working, but this is Apple we are talking about!

    Long Tiresome Day Yestereday.

    First, let me apologize for my typinng, I am onn my olld dell laptop, annd my keyboard is muffed.

    I spent about 6 hours yesterday at various electronics store trying to find an fm transmittere/chargere that worked with my 3g iphone. The itrip forced my phone into airplane mode, andn then the sound quality was horrible, extreme interfearence. It showed that it was charginng on the phone though.

    The belkin f8z182, when hooked to the phone, said "yadda yadda, not designed for iphone....airplane mode." The unit than proceded to power cycle and never came on fully.

    Then after a lengthy discussion with the apple rep, who is a friend of mine, i find out the the only one he has heard abbout success with is Griffin's new iTrip AutoPilot. Of course noone in my town carries it, after driving to all the big box stores to find this out. I did call circuit city and HH Gregg before hand, and they said they had it, no they did not.

    there seems to be major disruptive properties in the 3g and gps radios in the new iphone that causes extreme interference in the US FM radio bannds. The "autopilot" supposidly has some work around for it.

    I have one on order, and when I get it in, I will update my success/failure.

    So I have an iPhone 3G picked it up 2 days before a long road trip cross country already owned a fm transmitter that i though i was going to take on the trip and now guess what...


    i get this the stupidest thing i have ever seen :( apple made a bad move doing this


    So what is the fastest solution for fixing this with the parts i had on had since i did not want to pay 100$ for a new fm Transmitter well i had an FM Modulator laying around and well see for your self :)


    It all works very little noise from the phone and works well just wish i had the time to install the correct ipod controller for it vs doing this but hey it works and it was what i had laying around

    I wouldn't blame apple just yet...

    After my day yesterday, I decided to test some other 3g phones with the same fm transmitters. I haven't returned them yet. I tried a friends HTC Tilt, and my girlfriend's Slyde. Both 3g, both created same distortion. I wouldn't say it was Apple, we wanted 3g, we got it. Now we deal with the consequences till a solution is found. Everyone is still jealous of us... :)
