    Can anyone recommend what is the best one around, currently using my dad's five quid version which I believe to be the same as the griffen (oval shape) ones. Works ok actually, X2 AAA and plugs into the 3.5.

    Tried my mates itrip griffen, plugs into the dock and that seems to be better. Just wondered if there is a market leader?

    Iam thinking about this - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CAR-FM-RADIO-...bleAudio_MP3PlayerCarKits?hash=item2ea87fc13c

    Casette Tape connector (if you have one).

    Never had any consistent luck with the FM stuff.

    Try Blitzsafe

    Try Blitzsafe and see if they offer a solution for your car. The sound quality of the iPod/iPhone when directly connected to your car is very crisp and clear. If you use FMtransmitter, it will not be. Try to hard wire it

    Disconnect the antenna (aerial for you brits) and it will pick up the signal alot better, but you won't get good radio reception ....
