With a recent change of law enacted in the United Kingdom, Griffin Technology is now able to sell its iTrip FM transmitters for the iPod.
Griffin makes a large number of devices under the iTrip brand — a device that plugs into the iPod’s dock, universal models that work with any headphone jack-equipped device; a combination transmitter and car charger, devices especially designed for the iPod nano, Playstation Portable and other peripherals, and more.
Previous legislation in the United Kingdom designed to curb the broadcast of pirate radio stations also outlawed devices like the iTrip, which broadcasts a very low-power FM signal to a nearby radio, to enable you to use the iPod in your car without needing an interface cable. That law has been changed — effective Dec. 8, 2006, the UK Office of Communications (Ofcom) has implemented the Telegraphy Exemption, which allows devices such as the iTrip to be sold.
