QuickSeek FM Transmitter for iPod
This device allows users to listen to their iPods on their car (or even home) FM radios.

Car adaptor can power the transmitter and charge your iPod at the same time via mini-USB
Can be used without the car adaptor, with transmitter being powered from the iPod
Simple and convenient to use
Two year warranty
Transmitter power is a tad weak, making unit susceptible to interference
Optimal frequency may not stay optimal for long as you drive into new areas and encounter new stations

Competitive Internet price: c £37 inc. VAT
Star Rating: 7 stars As with all such transmitters, although convenient the audio quality achieved is not as high as that of a wired connection.
