How to receive a clearer iPod FM transmitter signal
Authored by: keathmilligan on Nov 22, '06 07:18:56PM

A direct adapter like the NEO is definitely the way to go since those provide full-quality audio (no conversion to radio signal) and allow you to use your factory radio controls (including the ones on your steering wheel) to control the iPod.

Unfortunately, these don't work on many cars, especially if your car is more than a couple of years old. There is a better alternative than the iTrip-like devices though. Your local stereo shop can install an adapter that provides you with an aux input for your stereo - they work bypassing the antenna with a switch (so you don't have to give up radio). The devices connect directly at the antenna input of your stereo so it doesn't pick up a lot of interference. I have one in my 2004 Xterra and the sound quality is quite good. I think it was about $150 installed.
