One of the great things about the Apple iPod is that it allows you to take all of your music anywhere. Smaller then the size of a card deck, the iPod can easily store thousands of your favorite songs, books, and games. It is natural to have the desire to bring the portability that is provided by the iPod with you when you are in your car as well! We all know that it is not a good idea, and in most cases illegal to drive your car with headphones in your ears. So what can be done to help bring the convenience of your iPod to your car in a safe and easy way?
Well, if you are lucky enough to have a new car that provides an iPod port, it is a easy as plugging it into the car and you are all set. For those of us that are not so fortunate, our options are somewhat limited. There is one option that allows you to plug the iPod into the cassette deck of your car by using a special adapter, but take it from me, it is a pain. The other problem is that many people no longer have cassette decks in their cars, so this would not be an option if you only have a CD player installed.
Your other option could be that you install a new stereo system into your car that does have an iPod integration. While this is a good option, it is a costly one. Personally, I don’t like the look of an aftermarket stereo system in my car. It often does not match the other controls inside the cockpit and is not as good looking as the original equipment.
What other options do you have? IPod FM transmitters! I personally have a job that requires that I drive a lot. I have used iPod fm transmitters, since I bought my first iPod, and have enjoyed all of the benefits that it brings to being in my car for extended periods of time. I listen to music and podcasts regularly, and my fm transmitter has done a great job in making that easy for me. I have tried many different transmitters over the years, and have dedicated this site to help people find great deals and decide which iPod car transmitters will be the best fit for them!
