Five FM iPod Transmitters Reviewed

If you want to listen to your iPod or other audio player in your car, but you don't have a cassette deck or a swanky I.C.E. system, then the answer is to transmit the music over FM to the car's radio. HEXUS.lifestyle reviews five FM transmitters for the iPod and friends, investigating how well these devices cope with broadcasting music over a 2 meter-or-so radius.

Some readers will be aware that it's been less than a year since these became legal in the UK, so the majority of iPodding Brits have only recently discovered that they can tune into their MP3 collection on the road.

If you want to play an iPod through your in-car audio system, you have three choices. One is to buy an in-car entertainment system with a suitable input. The next is to use a cassette adaptor that plugs into the iPod - assuming the car has a cassette player. The last is to buy an FM transmitter.

These FM devices transmit the output from an iPod stereo on a radio frequency of your choice and this is picked up by the in-car radio. Some work only with iPods, others work with any portable music player that has a headphone socket.

You tune the in-car radio to an empty frequency or one that is very weak in your area (you might have spotted the gotcha already) and then set the FM transmitter to broadcast on that same frequency. In effect, your portable music player becomes another radio station.

It was only late last year that FM transmitters finally became legal to use in the UK. Now that manufacturers have had the chance to sort out their products so that they conform to the new regs, we thought it time to look at a bunch of transmitters to compare their merits.
