Car radio adaptor for Ipod Nano

All I can find are either tape adaptors or FM adaptors. Are the FM adaptors still crap? What is everyone using?

I hard-wired a line in to my P5 stereo thanks to the good folks at auxmod. Best $50 I ever spent. Do a little research on your head units and see how flleixble the CD changer interface may be.

I heard they are coming out with a new transmitter for the nano real soon. Heard it from the sales person at the apple store, 2 weeks ago.

Pretty much.

Get a tape adaptor. Or a line-in.

I have the Audiovox FM Mod, that actually goes in-line on your car antenna. Needs to be "installed" (I did it myself) but the sound is 1000% better than any iTrip/Belkin/Monster FM modulator/transmitter. $50 at circuit city in the car audio department. The only bummer is, you need to flip a switch to cut the outside car antenna when you tune into whatever station you need to set the radio on.

Best solution for those without iPod Interface, AUX In, CD Changers-modible, cassette decks capable Car Stereos.

Well my factory radio isn't compatible with any of those CD changer adaptors. I guess I'll have to buy a new head unit and then the stupid changer adaptor that they charge seperately for.
