Yet another ipod rig died on me this week. Anybody know if any particular brand has a stronger signal than the standard shitboxes out there?
Have a thing called the FM Cup by McCally. I don't think they are made anymore but it's worked the best for me so far, but I need a better shielded power cord I think.
I used to have an fm adaptor and it worked really well in my old car because the antenna was retractable. I was able to avoid the interference and static with the antenna down. My wife's car did not have that feature and it generally sucked. If you can retract the antenna I think you will be good to go.
I think they all suck. I had a tape converter that worked the best till my tape player died. I haven't found anything comparable. Now I'm back to burning CDs
Yeah, I don't have a tape deck, but I heard those work pretty well. Part of the problem is that I live in the city so there's a ton of interference.
depends on where you live, like you said. In bum f*** louisiana they worked great. not so much when i moved to the "big city". also suck for road trips
I hope for your sake you don't move around too much. I'm in the Bay Area and it took me a month to find a station that wouldn't flare up on my way to work or on my way to the city. (89.7 if anyone around here cares). Not sure which one I have but I like it. It's the $50 from BestBuy I think, and has a USB port on the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter.
None... Research your stereo and find an adapter. On my old car factory radio I found an adapter to connect an aux cable to the multi CD player plug. www.crutchfield.com/ is a good spot to check
I have the Belkin Tunebase FM Transmitter. It works pretty well for where I am (central Illinois), though it's not worth trying to use when I go to Chicago. Other than really big cities, I've never had a huge issue with it though.
