iPod FM Transmitters

  bremner 10:43 05 Jun 2010

Have recently bought a second hand car that only has radio/cd player and no line in so can't connect an iPod to it.

A few years ago in a similar situation I tried a Griffin iPod FM Transmitter and found it rubbish.

Can anyone say whether they are now better and can recommend one.

I gave up using my Belkin one as I got totally fed up with the crackling hissing sound and constantly trying to retune it to get a reasonable sound. I wouldnt bother.

Thanks that is exactly what the one I had was like.

Some car audio places will fit an iPod line in to some systems.

There are options (depending on the make and model of car), to wire an adaptor into the back of the set - it emulates a DVD drive. Bit pricey at around 80 quid though - some ideas here click here

Thanks to both of you.

I will explore whether this is possible for my car.

simply replacing the head unit in your car.

For example, click here, for £40 has an aux in.

Or these, click here or click here have dedicated iPod connections so that it can be controlled through the head unit itself.

Just realised the last 2 links I gave are out of stock, so you would have to look at something like this instead click here.

Like many car now the head unit is unique to the car and your sugegstions simply won't fit in the car.

Which car is it?

Usually you can buy a fascia so that it will fit.
