I've been searching the net for a while and haven't found anyone else with my exact problem, including after a search through these forums. I just got my first iPod touch 3g (new to iPod completely). I plugged it into my fm transmitter, which is also new, and when I set the iPod down and drive, the music makes a little noise through my car speakers at random and frequent times, iPod volume control pops up on the screen and pauses the music. It continues this even after the music is already paused. When I hold the iPod all set up in my car, it works and plays music just fine. I'm not sure if it's the touch or if it's me. I turned the shake shuffle off to rule that kind of thing out. Can any of you iPod experts shed some light on this? By the way, hello. I'm new to the site, so nice to meet ya.
