    Get the Monster tuner that plugs into your cigarette lighter. Especially if you live in a city. I bought the Airplay FM tuner and it was always going to shit because I'm in the city, but I heard it works great in the burbs. The Monster one is probably the most expensive one you can get, I think it's 70 bucks, but it also charges your I-Pod at the same time. I can get you one for probably 50 bucks or so with my discount there. Only thing wrong with it would be if your cigarette lighter broke because then it wouldn't work.

    I have the iTrip, definitely lacking when it comes to consistency...I've had talks with various retailers about the best tuner on the market and they've all come back at me with mixed reviews on basically every one out there..go with a wire if you want optimum sound quality...

    I use the tape adapter set up - just like the one you use on CD walkmans, etc. Plugs into the earphone jack on the player and the tape deck in the car. The sound is surprisingly good, but the tape makes a "crunching" noise when it plays. I've returned it and gotten another, and I've had the same issue with both of 'em.

    My lady has the iTrip, and the sound tends to fade in and out, usually accompanied by occasional static. I prefer the tape adapter instead.

    I dunno, I heard the I-Trip breaks a lot and the signal ain't too great, I got no problems with the Monster one, it'll never sound as good as a fully-amped radio station but it does the job, especially since I don't have a tape player in my car.

    i have the tape adapter but coupled with plugging the ipod into the lighter for power there get to be too much crap happening in the center console and cluter in the car drives nuts (no pun intended).
    found this but im not sure itll work with the ipod i have.

    the monster one says it allows full range along the FM dial so that seems better then the ones that only allow a few specific stations.

    ive never gotten an FM tuner that has really worked well. if you have a casette player in your car you should get a casette adaptor, thats where its at.
