How to receive a clearer iPod FM transmitter signal

>> Ugh, and this is a completely retarded solution to begin with. FM Transmitters ALL sound like absolute ass. No exceptions, this is just how it is. IF you want to keep the stock stereo, what you should do is get an FM MODULATOR and not an FM Transmitters . The FM Modulator basically is hardwired into your antenna and provides a MUCH clearer signal to your FM stereo. Utlimately these are both pretty mickey-mouse solutions however because ideally you'd want a stereo that integrates w/ the iPod seamlessly like what Alpine offers. Heck I'd even take a simple 1/8" Auxilliary input over any FM transmitter/modulator.

An FM modulator is the same thing as an FM transmitter. What they call an "FM Modulator" connects between the head unit's antenna connection and its antenna. Whether or not it is connected directly to the head unit's antenna input is meaningless, since FM waves travel through the air.

>>Heck I'd even take a simple 1/8" Auxilliary input over any FM transmitter/modulator.

Duh, a simple 1/8" aux input directly connects the sound output of any device to your head unit. And gives the exact same output as if the iPod was connected through a dock. If your head unit "integrates w/ the iPod seamlessly" it's still using the direct audio connection that the aux input would be using.
