I have an older car that does not have a direct way to connect my iPod to my car stereo. I thought that the FM transistors were the best way to connect my iPod, but after wasting $50 on one, I thought it would be worth while to share my results in this Instructable.
Step 1: Don't buy an FM transmitter
Unless you live in the boonies, you'll spend all your time switching channels to try and get rid of the static you're hearing. It works okay for long road trips, but still annoying.
Here's what I wasted my money on.
Step 2: Buy a cassette adapter for $10
I bought this cassette adapter for $10 from amazon
I'm really happy with it. It's no audiophile solution, but works just fine for my needs.
If someone would post how to hardwire your iPod to any car, that would be ideal.
