Does anyone know any canadian distributor of either the kensington fm transmitter or roadtrip+ 87.9 fm transmitter for the ipod?

The new iTrip LCD also looks tempting.

I got my RoadTrip from the store formerly known as Radio Shack - I think it's called Electronic Boutique or something silly like that now. Perhaps they'd sell the RoadTrip+ too

I think Radioshack is now "Circuit City"
On the Kensington site they "Where to buy" page on there site it might be helpful.

Actually, it's called "The Source by Circuit City" now. Circuit City bought Canadian Radio Shack Licensee InterTAN and they lost use of the Radio Shack brand in a legal ruling earlier this year.

London Drugs carries the Kensington for $89.99

I checked out London Drugs. The Kensington transmitter they carry is the older model that doesn't have the digital tuner, but only two preset stations. However, the iRiver Mobile FM Transmitter (AFT-100) is exactly the same transmitter as the new Kensington, including the Aerielle antenna. The are only three differences: 1) it's black instead of white 2) it has a connector through the headphone jack rather than the dock port and 3) the price is $49.99 at The Source instead of $89.99 and up for the Kensington (if you can find it!) I've found the iRiver produces quite a good sound for FM.
