iTrip....

im going to be getting one an ipod nano now that they have a cheap one that actually reasonable as far as storage and im looking at getting some sort of FM transmitter because i really want to use it in my truck and dont have an ipod interface and dont really wanna go back to my tapedeck with one of those tape transmitters...

my one freind has one and he said he hasnt had many problems with it in the car and so i wanted to see if anyone else uses it and has had a good or bad experance with it....

i myself believe the griffin iTrip sucks majorly. WHen i used one i would get nothing but crappy sound. I Use the Monster iCalPlay. It works really really well, no static, and u can use any fm station

i used the monster FM transmitter, but eventually it stopped working properly, would only play out of the left speaker. i have the itrip now. i got the one with the digital display. got it on ebay for $19 with shipping. they both had some static but decent sound and so far im happy with the itrip. it works better with my setup now cause i have a vehicle mounted holder, i got from www.proclipusa.com and has a charger, so teh itrip fits nicely on top.

if you have the pioneer that is in your sig you cannot use the RCA's on the rear of the deck since they are OUTPUT. you can on the other hand buy an direct fm modulator like this: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=15492 and then get somethin like this: http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=family and you will have an fm modulator which is 100 times better than anything these wireless units promise and you wont come on here and complain about the dissappointment of those units 1-2 months after you buy it. i promise. i can even help you over the phone to install it. i promise.

i have a monster fm transmitter and it does have a lot of static if you are using a frequency that has another station on it... here in delaware it seems that all the availble stations have something on them so it doesnt work too well here... it did work good when i lived in florida though

I have used the Griffin FM and it has a muffled sound. It claims it isnt cd quality and it isnt. It personally bothered me enough to not buy one...if youre picky about sounds alot of the FM things seem to have a slight muffle to them

its just an RCA to mini plug wire. so you can run from the RCA's of the modulator to the MP3 player
