    I've used the Griffin iTrip, but where I live there are ZERO open frequencies. I live outside a major city, so that explains it. Depending on where you live, your experience will vary, no matter what product you have.

    P.S. Welcome to the site!

    We have open frequencies around here, but I'm just not sure which has the best sound quality. I'd like to have a remote..

    Believe it or not, the best one I've found is from a company called Accessory Genie on Amason:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001QFXDA2/ref=ox_ya_oh_product

    Has a very strong signal and was 10x better than my Griffin one. The only downside is if you have a thick case like the Otterbox, it won't fit in the cradle. I got around it by buying an otterbox belt clip and securing it to the cradle. Great transmitter though and comes with a 3 year warranty for only $40

    Hmn... So, witch one is the best?... I mean about bring a Good signal and distance.


    PD: "Transmitter" mean that I plug the soft to my iPod, put a signal (like 104.9) and then go to my Radio and put that signal and I will hear on my Radio what I'm playing on my iPod?

    And if is like that, what about if that signal (104.9) is used by a local FM Trasnmitter?... Anyway I'll be able to use it?


    /Sorry for my bad english.

    Guys, i'd like your opinions on whether it's better for the iPod to be connected via aux or FM transmitter... My radio is one that comes with an aux slot but I've heard ppl saying that the FM trans is more popular... So what do you think?

    Screw what's popular. A line-in will give better quality, and signal problems are a non-issue.

    yes, an Aux port is definitely better as far as sound as concerned. I just drive an older car without one
