    I'm in the market for an FM transmitter for my mp3 player (because I don't feel like taking apart my dashboard to hardwire it into my CD player)... however I haven't found one yet that didn't get terrible reviews. Does anyone have any experience with these, or any good/bad stories and recommendations?

    Thanks :wavey:

    Nope, they all suck unless you live in the middle of the nowhere that gets absolutely no radio waves that will interfere.

    Yeah, my girlfriend has an IPOD with the iTRIP FM trans and it works great. Never had any problems at all really, just set it to a station that you don't pick up anything.

    I had the monster and it worked great. The only downside was I broke the skinny ass wires on it.
