    iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    I will most likely being doing a road trip from Denver to Calgary in a few weeks. Without any chance of having satellite radio installed that leaves CDs and my iPod. Alas, no built in ipod integration!

    Have any of you used those FM transmitter adapters with your iPod in your 997? If so, can you recommend a brand or model that seems to work well, as oppsed to a brand or models to avoid?

    Thanks!

    Re: iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    I bought one on apple.com
    Its like $100- works good.
    Its called airplay blah blah, but I have an IPOD shuffle
    I will look it up on the apple site and post more info.
    Are they universal? I dont know if the shuffle is on a different transmitter..

    Re: iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    I have a "Sonnet" model : FMT-IPOD-BLK
    it transmit from 88.1 to 107.9
    it has a 9" antenna
    it coasts about $115
    I think it is the best

    I still use a cassette adapter with my iPod in my Discovery. What works best for me with that is to turn up the volume on my iPod to about 3/4 maximum, then just tweak the volume a bit on my stereo. If I drive the stereo too loud with the volume being too low on the iPod the sound quality quickly degrades.

    Yes

    Re: iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    Pick up the new Kensington with RDS (available on 5th Generation iPod's only)

    Sound quality is very close to Sonnet and much better than the rest of the competition. Features proprietary Aerielle technology that increases channel separation. From my experience thus far ( I have the non-RDS as I have a 3G iPod), it sounds great -- prodigious amounts of bass for an FM transmitter. I highly recommend it.

    Thats what I want to hear! I was perusing the Apple website and came across that unit. I think I'll take a drive down to my local Apple Store to see if they have it in stock. ;-)

    Thanks!

    Re: iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    I get good quality sound from a new Belkin unit I just bought for my Nano.....

    Re: iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    I use an itrip and it works great. However, I am looking to purchase a new ipod mount, one that attaches to the stereo panel of the car (where phone handset model would go), does anyone have any info as to where I can find something like this?

    Re: iPod FM Transmitter - Suggestions on which work well?

    MacExtreme Airplay 2 works well - clips into the nano or ipod and allows still retains the charging / power port. FM transmission from 87.1 to 107.9 - works better than my mates iTrip on the same frequency.

    Probably about $20 in the US by now - not CD quality but acceptable enough especially with the engine and tyre noise

    If you want to save some money, try buy.com for the Kensington. I was in the Apple store on the verge of buying it when I wandered over to the internet-equipped Macs and looked up prices on line. You can get them almost 20-30 dollars cheaper than the always-MSRP Apple store
