Is their another way of connecting your ipod to a car cdplayer? Im Kindof Questioning that Belkin FM trasmitter thing, I dont want to spend 50 bucks on it and end up having Radio Sound Quality Instead of MP3. thats the main thing that worries me about it. The Methoth I want to use is a Y Connector. But i havent found many CD Recivers that have a L/R Audio Jack in the Front Pannel. :(

Do NOT....I repeat do NOT buy that FM transmitter. It is utterly horrible. It is far worse that radio quality sound. Its can be RIGHT NEXT to your reciever and still not sound good. I reccommend looking elsewhere for a means of connecting it. Buying a new radio for your car isn't such a bad idea, at least compared to buying the FM transmitter....

Depends on the area really. Eg// In belfast I get a brilliant signal from mine, however as soon as I reach portadown (about 30 or miles away) the signal screws up.

If money is an issue you could go for a cheap cassette head unit that has a 3.5mm input. Or you could try a cassette adaptor that provides the same facility - the quality isn't all that bad!

The transmitter works fine as long as there's not a lot of interferance. It works fine in my house, I can't tell the difference between it and plugging it directly in. When I'm in the car it varies from ok to terrible depending on where I'm at like Beta said. If you can help it, you'll proabably be better off with getting a cd player for your car that has input jacks. If you can't find one reasonably priced, you'd probably still be better off just going with one that has a mp3 cd player and burn your music to disks.

Get the Monster iCarPlay. I have no complaints at all. It jacks into the bottom instead of the headphone jack, which is supposed to provide superior sound quality.

i use one of those for playing anything in the car. the quality is bearable since it is about the same as audio cassette -- not as finicky as an fm transmitter. it wont help you with a cd deck though..
