On the Go! FM Wireless Transmitter

This is an external device that plugs into either your iPod dock connector or headphone jack. In essence, the unit broadcasts the music playing on your iPod on an FM radio frequency, and you simply tune your radio to that frequency to listen. As an example, suppose you are using an FM transmitter that broadcasts on 88.7MHz. To listen to your music, you would set your car stereo to 88.7.

Some FM transmitters allow you to set the radio frequency manually. This is great, as there is the possibility that a radio station could be broadcasting on the frequency that your FM transmitter uses. Bad news, though, because your car stereo locks onto the most powerful signal, meaning you either do not hear the music from your iPod, or you get “bleed” from both sources. Bleed means you hear both signals, causing you a massive headache! Ever try listening to two songs at once? It is not fun.
