I use a iStuff AutoScan FM Transmitter which is not too bad - I run it from the Power socket in the boor and bought a 2 metre extension canble to plug in to my mp3 player in the arm rest

The sound is a little muddy, I think these transmitters don't have enough bandwidth to give a crystal clear sound, but it isn't bad, and anyway it's in a car - not the best audio environment in the world

I got it from iworld here:

24.99 - not bad at all and good enough for my use!

Bluetooth is for phone only. You cannot use it for audio input.

I recently got a Kensington RDS transmitter and it work pretty well- scrolls the track & artist name across the radio display as well- quite cool!. I had a Belkin tunecast before and the Kensington is much better- both in sound and signal strength. Once you find a good fequency (not easy) there is hardly any hiss.
