    My 2 cents.

    Living in Atlanta...I have had NO luck with wireless FM transmitters. I have a looooong commute so having good tunes/entertainment was essential to me. If there are lots of FM signals in your area (like ATL) it is likely you will get interference. I finally bit the bullet and went to a car stereo place and had them install a WIRED fm transmitter. it has the standard headset jack and plugs into my ipod...droid...what ever. Sounds great! it cost me about 100 bucks to get it done...depending on the equipment you want to use it can go up to 200. If you have a newer model car or stereo...you might have an auxiliary jack that you can access in the back of unit. Go to a reputable stereo place and they can tell you.

    I just purchased this as well. Will give a review after testing it out in a couple of weekends.

    I wanted to find an economical price such as this, because I highly doubt I will be using it for much longer. Not only will I be in the market for a new vehicle in the near future, but the price of a new deck is on par with some of the higher priced fm transmitters anyway.

    I purchased mine on eBay... $20 less than the price on Verizon.com. Just make sure you buy a new, sealed unit... preferably with free shipping.

    Good luck.

    auxiliary input

    FM transmitters for the most part suck. Your sound quality is only as good as the transmitter you choose and the FM receiver in your radio. Wired FM modulators are much better, but again you are limited in sound quality to those parts. I recommend an auxiliary input for your radio which will give you the absolute best sound quality possible. If you list your make/model/year vehicle, I can check to see what is available for it.

    After reading the first few posts it looked like this thread might degenerate into Cubs - Sox jokes. Oh well maybe next time.

    Fortunately they both suck, but I will give a review of my cheap-o transmitter when I get it. Was shipped today.

    Totally agree. I wasted plenty of money on FM transmitters...one i took the plunge and got a wired fm modulator (have an older car) I was much happier...

    However, when traveling and renting a car, an FM transmitter may be the only fallback for if the car doesn't come with an aux input or a radio that supports stereo bluetooth.

    Yes. However as mentioned, if you are looking for the best quality there are better alternatives. FM transmitter can just be one of the cheaper methods.

    A few methods:

    Cassette tape adapter
    Deck with a 3.5 jack
    Deck with usb
    Deck accepts bluetooth
    FM Transmitter
    Wired modulator
    ..probably more.
