    Most FM Transmitters have to be plugged into your cigarette/power source and the quality can vary depending on signal quality. There's also the fact that on long trips you might have to switch frequencies a few times.

    The cassette adapter on the other hand needs no external power supply, and there's 0% interference. They're also much cheaper ($10). The one complaint is that most new cars no longer have a cassette player, so it might be difficult to use if you have a new car (read: impossible).

    If your car has a tape deck, buy the cassette adapter. Or, if it's new enough, check and see if your Radio/CD Player has an AUX input that will let you plug your MP3 player directly into it.

    Absolutely go for the cassette adapter if you can. The sound quality is much better than the FM adapters are.
