    I have a belkin I was using for my IPOD 5g. When I got my Iphone last week I plugged it in and my Iphone suggests me switching it to airplane mode. The reason it does this is because the Iphone is constantly looking for cell signal, so your radio goes bezerk with dit-dit-da-da, etc noise.

    It will work, but expect your music interrupted constantly with that phone noise. If you do the airplane mode its' just fine and I actually prefer it over my Ipod 5g.

    What you want is an FM Reciever so you can listen to FM radio. I would suggest that you are best off just getting a small radio or a walkman with radio. There are no FM accessories to recieve signals for the iPhone.

    Aloha TEG,

    Actually Belkin is coming out with an FM transmitter for the iPhone - it will debut next month IIRC. I've been waiting for that since iDay, when I bought my iPhone. The Belkin product is just like the TuneBaseFM that I use daily with my 5G iPod. The main difference is that the newer product has extra shielding so that the GSM interference is eliminated. As soon as they get out here to Hawaii, I'm putting one in my RX350!
