Question about Griffin Technology iTrip Auto FM Transmitter for Apple iPod

Open Question

I recently bought a Griffin iTrip Auto and the product itself works great, however, several days now since I've bought it and I've used it almost every single day, last night I unplugged my iPod from it and, while the iPod is still working when plugged in and still turning on, the iPod won't work on its own, the menu won't even scroll around, it just lights up. If it matters, iPod 4GB Nano, not sure what gen, decently old though.

I have an itrip (2009) for my iphone, but as soon as I plug the dock connector, I got a message that says that such app is not recognized for my iphone

Hello Hinost,

The Griffin iTrip is a device that is compatible with Apple's iPod and its main function is to allow a user to listen to their iPod in their car. The device sends data through radio signals and it assigns a radio station you want to tune.

Update your iPhone if your Griffin iTrip is not working. This has been known to fix fourth generation iPhones. Plug your iPhone into your computer and launch iTunes. Under the "Devices" tab, click the "Update" button to update your iPhone firmware. Try using the Griffin iTrip again.Perform a soft reset on your Griffin iTrip if it is not powering on. Sometimes the iPhone has problems communicating with third-party devices and can lock up or freeze the third-party device. To perform a soft reset, plug the iTrip into your iPhone and make sure the iPhone is powered on. Hold down the "Menu" and "Select" buttons on your iPhone until the Apple logo appears. Try using your iTrip again after this reset.Make sure that the iTrip is completely flush with your iPhone when it is connected to the iPhone.If your iTrip is set to a station that is close to a major broadcasting station, you may be getting interference. To change the station frequency, navigate to the iTrip playlist on your iPhone.

Itrip screen flashes and wont start

From the Griffin website: "This means that the iPod you're using isn't compatible with the new iTrip. The new iTrip with App Support requires data connections that aren't available in iPod models made before September of 2007. The good news is, there are plenty of iTrip models that are compatible with your iPod. For a complete list of Griffin products that are compatible with your iPod, go to our Products page and click on the picture of your iPod"
