Perfect for sabotaging bad music choices on long car journeys, Griffin’s new iTrip has been redesigned for our favourite Flash player – Apple’s second generation Nano.

For the uninitiated, the iTrip transmits your tunes to any nearby FM radio. The new model avoids adding too much unnecessary bulk to the rather dainty Nano, which is only to be applauded, and while it’s hardly going to challenge Holly Willoughby in the sexiness stakes, the iTrip is nicely unobtrusive.

Once clipped in, your Nano can be programmed, using its own screen for display info, to transmit on the best possible frequency in either stereo or mono. Even better, it doesn’t need batteries as it draws its power in a rather vampiric way from the Nano. If you are running low on juice, however, it also comes with a USB port so your Nano can be charged while connected.

Griffin has also added extra technology that automatically adjusts your music’s volume to get the best possible sound quality out of your favourite tunes. Note to thrash metallers: don’t fret; this function can be overridden.
