I am ordering a keyboard for my mom from Apple and I also need to get an FM adaptor for my iPod. The new car will not have cassette and I found out not all the new '06 models are coming with auxiliary jacks on the front. We have lots of empty channels out here. Which is best out of the under $50 line?<br>Apple store results for accessories<br><br>
I am not much help here - good that you are not getting a cassette player. A coworker iPod cassette dohicky got jammed in the player and to this day cannot be ejected. I will say that its a 12 year old player<br><br>
Now that I think of it, there is a better way. <br><br>Newer factory radios have an input on the back for CD changers...you can buy a plug for it that has an 1/8" iPod jack on the other end. Might investigate that. <br><br>

A coworker says his friend used an iTrip and liked it but he is also in an area with few stations. I will be looking for the jack option but I just want something for back up.<br><br>Carp I use a cassette adaptor in the Blazer and have never had any problem. It is 6 years old. But I don't take it out much. <br>Thanks, guys<br><br>

I use the iTrip and have no complaints. <br><br>Well, maybe one; Griffin's software installs more than 100 (92Kb) radio frequency files into iTunes and the iPod that are used to tune in to the radio stations. I don't know what these files are called but I do understand their purpose. My complaint is that when the iPod attempts to play one of these snippets, it beeps annoyingly for a second and then moves onto the next song. This only happens when you play directly from your iPod library set to random. The work around is not to do that. I have a playlist folder and the frequencies are in it.<br><br>In my area the iTrip does a good job of podcasting. But, I think it goes without saying, if you live in a radio-station-congested area the performance of any of these gadgets is compromised considerably.<br><br>As far as works-as-advertised though, the iTrip does the job.<br><br>
