The BIG problem with FM transmitters – unless you live in the area where these frequencies are not consumed ( got to go too rural) otherwise to get rid of the static you will hear you need to spend all your time switching FM channels. Annoying .. I personally cannot do this on a regular basis of switching channels.

Alternatives:

Do you know why FM transmitters are made ? Specially for cars with no cassette players. If you have cassette player in your car then you are at big luck. Buy a cassette adapter from Radio Shack or eBay for less than $10 and use that to output MP3 player audio to the stereo.

If your car only has a CD changer? Sure you can get an FM modulator, but they don’t work so great and are notorious for poor sound quality. Leverage the CD player in the car to add a CD-quality auxiliary input for MP3 player.

Other FM transmitter with good reviews from Buy.com

Woot.com has Belkin FM transmitter for $9.99 and if you are a geek then you can put these cheaps to better use following these articles …

This modification improves the transmission range and remove the ‘feature’ of auto-power down when no audio signal is present. It certainly sets you up as resident pirate radio DJ of your block and allows you to jam the loud radio listener on a bus or train!

Convert a car cigarette lighter cell phone charger into a method of powering transmitter.
