View Full Version : iPod FM transmitters

Jan 15, 2007, 10:12 PM
Longtime troll here; love everyone's analysis on all things Mac. I had to finally register, however, because I've encountered a problem and hopefully someone here can help me out.

I own a white 5G iPod, received as a gift last fall. I also have a car adaptor for my previous iPod (a green mini) which obviously still works for the current one. My problem is this: I can't find any FM transmitter that runs off the iPod battery but also allows an iPod-sized power/charger connection on its bottom. I remember going to Wal-Mart (I'll get it later, I thought :mad:) as soon as I got it and finding one just as I described, but there doesn't seem to be anything like that on the market anymore.

I'm kicking myself because I'm going on a roadtrip this weekend and would love to have my entire library at my disposal. Does anybody know of an FM transmitter like I described?

I have seen one that plugs into the bottom of the iPod like you described,

and also has the option of plugging a car charger into the bottom of the transmitter in the form of a mini usb,, that is the mini usb into the transmitter and the other end into your car..

I think it was made by Belkin, but I am not entirely sure,,

Hope this helps

I don't know if this is what you're looking for. If it is great, if not hope you find it.

The old iTrips plugged into the jacks at the top of the old iPods. These newer iPods with video have only a headphone jack on top, and it seems that all of the latest transmitters plug in to the dock instead.

Is there a good transmitter that still plugs into the headphone jack?

These are combined FM transmitter and chargers:





If this isn't what you are looking for then i apologise.
