no garbage sounding FM transmitters. i've got good speakers in my car, but unfortunately i have no aux input. i'm considering either getting a new deck with an aux, or getting a way to hardwire it in.

basically whatever will give me the best sound quality is what i'm looking for. let me know what has/hasn't worked for you guys.

Yea i've been wanting to do the same thing but haven't got around to it. I think your best bet would be to get a new deck. I'm looking to get a deck with the Audio cables in the back so i can buy the adapter that lets me control the ipod through the deck and keeps it charged.

Honestly the one I put in my tape player works great.

Sounds as good as my tape player, and it was 15$

this is the BEST ipod car charger ever. the only place left to get it is ebay. i've gotten it from ebay a couple times so they're legit.

the reason why it's so much better is because it has a LINE-IN port. you get the best audio quality coming out from there instead of having the aux cable connected to your ipod.

line-in > headset jack

I have an auxiliary input in my car and I still prefer using CDs than my iPod. The music plays louder. It sucks how new cars are getting rid of 6 disc CD players and replacing them with just auxiliary inputs.

Aux is definitely the way to go. In my car it has better sound quality than CD's plus because I can control the sound from my ipod it seems to make it louder.

I was using the FM transmitter for a few years, but after visiting Vegas and renting whip that had a deck with aux, I found the music quality was like night and day. As soon as I got back home I copped a deck and an audio cable, and now my music is always crystal clear. No more changing the stations on the transmitter when there was crackling.

if you're cheap you can get an fm modulator for around $25, but you've got to wire in into the fm antenna port on the back of your head unit.  the sound quality is pretty decent, definitely better than an fm transmitter.  no static.  if you buy a fuse tap from an auto parts place ($5 or less i think), the wiring is really simple.
