    I don't have an AUX Input in my car; I'm looking for an FM Transmitter that works well with the DX...I've tried several and so far they suck.

    I tried the Jabra bluetooth speaker phone that has a FM transmitter
    from Verizon to play music from my phone via blutooth and and it doesn't give me the same kick that I get from a CD. Let me know if there's a good one.

    The monster one is pretty good. I used it last year.

    I'm looking to find one that has the strongest signal strength allowed. I have a brand new car...unfortunately without an auxillary imput. I was going to put my old stereo system (well, not old, just in my last car) into the new one, but a wiring harness isn't made for it yet. Not a cheap one anyway. And I don't feel like spending $120 for a custom one to be made. The problem with me, is that where I live, just about every darn station I tune in on the stock radio brings in a decent signal. Trying to get the FM transmitter on ANY station is basically useless. I've tried several brands and none seem to work well. Belkin, Monster, iTrip (for my iPod) and two other I forget their names.
    Guess I'm out of luck unless I want to spend the money for a custom harness. :(

    FSRBIKER - thanks a lot. To be clear - that thing has an aux out and will plug into the back of most head units? Then I tune in to whatever FM station it is set for and it bypasses the broadcasted signal? The toggle switch on the AUX disables it so you can still listen to the radio?

    Looks like the best option for people that have stock head units they dont want to, or can't replace. Very cool.

    Ben this creates an aux in if your vehicle does not have one. It is not wireless.

    It has a toggle to listen to radio or the aux input. How it works is you unplug your antenna from the radio this plugs into the radio and then the antenna into this piece. Certain cars like Subarus need an antenna adapter since they dont use the standard looking antenna plug. There are two selectable frequencies you can use once its installed. Works very well, occasionally I get some kind of overriding signal for a few seconds but its so infrequent I cant figure out how it happens.

    Well worth it IMO and blows away any FM transmitter.

    I had the earlier version of that (fm100) and it was great. Sounded 99% as good as a cd.

    Ive used a number of different ones over the years with different devices, the one i have now that works better then anything ive used yet, is a little scosch (spelling?) Brand unit i bought at walmart, back in the car audio section, it was $30 bucks, comes with a remote, works awsome, also has a built in usb to charge with too, however, when trying to charge my droid x while playing pandora radio, it seems to be to much draw on it and sometimez turns off and on, this issue is non exsistint when the phone is near fully charged.
