    I just got a car for graduation my grandparents bought me. It's a 2009 Nissan Altima coupe in black. I'm picking it up next friday so i'm trying to get all the stuff I need for it. This is for my ipod touch too. [​IMG]

    My question is what is better for the car above? The Fm transmitter or an AUX cable? Since it has an Auxiliary input. Thanks

    Aux Cable

    I second this. FM Transmitter would more likely be used in a car without an aux input, but since yours has one, it is best to use it since it will get better clarity than a FM Transmitter. Hope this helps.

    Cable will always give best reception, but I use fm transmitter,
    Already too many wires in car

    If you travel very far or live in the mountains, use the wire. I'd use the wire anyway because why go to the cost of the FM transmitter? In the mountains the FM signal changes so much that you wouldn't use it. It will also change if you travel very far and that gets pretty annoying.
