    Default What's the Best FM Transmitter for the iPhone?

    Title says it all, I'm looking for a FM transmitter, but there are many options to choose from, does anyone have specific suggestions?

    Hi jaquar11, I have been reading a lot of posts here, but thought I'd throw my $0.02 into the mix...

    I have a gizmo called the RediRad-FM in my Jeep and believe it is the best of all worlds. On the plus side, there is NO broadcast interference it is priced competitively at $99, comes with a money-back guarantee and (somehow) it is MADE IN USA (not China!). The downside (which isn't really much of a downside) is that you have to install it (or have it installed). On my Jeep it was really easy but I needed connector adapters that I got online. Google RediRad.

    Hope it helps!

    I am not sure if it is the best or not, but personally I am pretty satisfied with this.

    I just the Griffin iTrip Auto at Wal-Mart for $40 on Friday (it goes for $69.99 at Best Buy).

    So far, it is great. It is economical, it charges the iPhone and it works, at least in Nashville. I found 5 stations that played my music crystal clear.

    I use this one: Griffin iTrip Auto FM Transmitter and Auto Charger for iPod (Black):Amazon:MP3 Players & Accessories
    Love it--no interference problems, good sound quality, charges the phone, and the controls in the middle let me play/pause/skip/rewind without looking at my iPhone while I'm driving.

    I use the Tune In Radio app. It's not an FM transmitter but I'm able to stream most radio stations.

    I use a Motorola T505. It's not a mount, it just clips to your sun visor. It connects to your phone via bluetooth and transmits to your stereo over FM. It works great. What makes it a lot better than the mounts is it has a built in microphone that makes it much better for hands free talking and Siri. Look around and you can find it on sale for $35-$40 at amazon and newegg. I like it so much I have two, on in my work vehicle and one in my personal vehicle.
