Just got an Apple 20Gb IPOD. It kicks ass. I don't have enough songs on it yet, but I will.

Its connected in my car via an FM Transmitter. Works really well.

Good thing i had it on my way home from thanksgiving. I got stuck on I90 for a couple of hours. Made the trip a whole lot better.

I just got my ipod and was wondering about the FM transmitters. I went out and bought a tape adapter .. sounds great but can't stand the annoying wire. Hows the quality of the sound and which one did you get?

I got the sound feeder one on the page above...the battery powered one. Its got a dial instead of predetermined switches. Found it at a computer store in Toronto this weekend.

I haven't tried any other ones, so i really don't know how they perform. There are a lot of generic ones and then there's the IRock 300W. The only thing that bothers me is that the fm transmitter is powered by batteries. Sad to say that they probably don't last as long as the IPOD does.

Sound wise, I found that the transmitter works better in the higher frequences, usually around 92+. But works fine, if you can tune it around 88-89. Just seemed a little harder to tune it there. I don't think you'll have this problem if you get a transmitter with the predetermined frequencies. Once its tuned, it pretty much blocks out any stations at that frequency because the source is so near the antenna, ie. in your car.
