Hi guys,

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as an FM transitter that will accept an MP3 player via USB connection and then transmit the music to your FM radio.

Depending on what MP3 you have, this may or may not suit:

I have found it very good as it charges the Ipod from the cig lighter socket while playing the music through the FM radio in the 4x4. Sound quality very good also.

Yes but better still is the FM transmitter which takes a USB drive direct, bypasses the MP3 player, no cords either.
We bought ours from this mob on ebay auction 9712629922
they also have a whole CD player with usb slot to take usb drives for $80

Monster i-car unit, $ 154 as per link above.
Same through educational institution, $ 129.

Originally bought a Belkin crappy unit for $ 100 - had to be returned as it did not work properly. Refund obtained.

Apple Shop in Norwood = $ 106 for a Griffin Auto (charges & transmits all in one - not dissimilar to the Monster in appearance & function) i-Trip unit as good as the Monster unit (have used both).

Just over 400 songs or 1.3 days of tunes now loaded on the iPod Nano that is velcoed in the vertical position on the dash in the car & in the 4 x 4. As it is always powered ex the vehicle, I leave the screen illuminated all the time to make it more simple to see & use.

A more satisfied traveller now exists (me).

I use the iRiver AudiaX DGT-201 Wireless FM Transmitter. It is a real neat device.

Autobarn has them but they do not play WMAs, better option now is to get the full car radio that has USB port and SD card slot JVC will have one on the market soon but only a USB, Alpine will have one out but don't know when , all brands will go this way in the near future , I have a 1GB SD card for mine with 323 songs and that is more than enough,

I didn't go the usb way mine connects straight to the ipodvia headphone socket .Excellent sound ,unlike the fm modulator thingy that loses quality in the transfer.The missus LOVES gadgets! we came out of there with, a navman[she is hopeless at finding her way], another radio for her car & a dvd burner.

My CD player in the Nissan died a few months ago. I then purchased a radio with USB and SD slot. This is great no more CDs or moving parts just plug the 1 gig memory card.

I bought a CD/USB/SD Stereo off this Ebay store in March. It is FANTASTIC. 1 gig USB Key and 512meg SD card is all I used all trip.

18 albums on the 1 gig and about 9 on the 512meg and hit shuffle (one or the other) and you have an 18 disk or 9 disk stacker. I don't even know if the CD player works - I've never used it and probably never will. My mate liked it so much I had to buy one for him too. Mine cost about $130 inc postage and his was about $150.

They now have a new model that plays DVD's too. They are on there on there own like this one Site Link

Or packaged with a roof screen for $339 Buy it now (not auction) which is cheap.

It turned up two days after I paid on both occasions. Fantastic service.

Cruiser,
I bought a FM Modulator that plugs into your ciggy socket. Hooks up to your MP3 player with cord provided. Tune FM radio to same channel as FM Modulator and away you go. Also has a place for your USB stick to slot in to. 69 Oxfords from ALDI i think it was.
Cheers,
Bros.
