    Hey I am back with my feedback on iTrip VS BlueTrip.

    I just went out to the garage and did a test between the old Griffin BlueTrip that I bought last year, and the newer Griffin iTrip that I received this week.

    I just gotta let everyone know that the sound improvement is HUGE. Not only is the sound level better, but the quality of the sound is now is AWESOME.

    I used a newer Moto-G phone [that has APTx] I put on White Stripes "7 Nation Army" as a test. We flipped back an forth between the BlueTrip and the iTrip.

    My Boxster has the Bose package so I have been listening the MP3's from CD's instead of the BlueTrip because it sounded like a tin can relatively speaking.

    Now with the iTrip, BlueTooth streaming sounds just like any CD/MP3.

    Just get yourself a new Griffin iTrip and chuck the BlueTrip, you will NOT be sorry.

    Sure

    I am in Canada and I could not find it here so I ended up paying a bit of a premium to get it directly from Griffin.
    Later on I found it online in Canada at "The Source", for a little less but that twas too late. Ahh well.

    Warning though: Be careful; if you do order from Amazon. Do not order from TurboDeals.
    I ordered one last month from them on Amazon. But they sent be the old BlueTrip instead.
    They were good about it and refunded me minus the shipping and let me keep it.

    The Correct SKU for the iTrip is "GC39982"

    Do you sell those cool phone mounts for the 981? Umm I might be needing one of those now that the music issue is solved. I was trying to be the last man standing who does not own a phone. I have resisted until now but I may have to cave in.

    Re: Bluetooth streaming with base audio - $40

    I am assuming that since it plays through the aux jack, track selection and display is through the phone? I am currently using CD's, which work great with the Porsche display and the magic wand but are a bit of a pain to deal with otherwise. I don't touch the phone while driving, as it comes with a nasty fine in Ontario ($500, $1,000 if you fight it) and 3 demerits.

    If you mount it you are okay

    What you can do legally

    • Use hands-free wireless communications devices with an earpiece, lapel button or Bluetooth device;
    • View the display screens of GPS units that are integrated into the vehicle or mounted on a dashboard and not obscuring the driver's view;
    • Use portable MP3 players hands-free, as long as they're secured in or mounted to the vehicle
    • Call 911

    yep control is through the phone. That's why I plan on buying one of the T-Design mounts

    Yes, I looked it up. You cannot touch the phone once its on. Actually, you can't do a lot of things once you are moving. Using the display to change songs like I do is actually illegal too. However, apparently you can use SIRI (if you have an iPhone) to select music. Win.

    Using my mount the phone is mounted exactly where the PCM screen is. Mounted on a dashboard. You can use it without taking your eyes from the road for long. So if you call it "GPS unit with extended functionality" instead of "phone" or "mp3 player" - Canadian cops should be happy, right?

    Nope, they got you if they want you. You cannot legally touch your GPS while driving or even at a red light.

    Having said that, I will be ordering your phone mount at some point. I also bought a Garmin GPS that is almost exactly the size of the "PCM" display and attached it by the suction cup to the display (which I hardly ever look at), but being a touch screen, it didn't work out as planned. Have you made a mount for something like this?

    Sure, have done plenty of mounts for GPSes and over-the-PCM solutions too! Those base PCMs are practically useless. Check out "custom" section on my website: Porsche Accessories and Mods - Custom Mounts

    See this thread for pictures of my custom mount for tablet over the PCM. You can hardly tell its not part of the Porsche
    iPad over PCM installation project.

    Cool. Let me know how you think it sounds, as compared to the BlueTrip.

    I received the holder this week, thanks for the quick ship! One quick question, is that piece of padded tape meant to be used on the "blade" that slides into the car slot?
