    Honestly...those aren't that great...
    (at least the one's i've tried aren't)

    To answer you're questions though.....
    I've seen them at walmart and Target....
    I'm sure you can find them somewhere else though

    Im looking at their new FM transmitter. Belkin TuneBase with ClearScan. It looks like they have worked most of the kinks out of it.

    I couldnt find ANY at Target. Nor Walmart---I probably wasnt looking in the right section

    Try Best Buy..

    If you have no luck at those stores.... then eBay would be your best bet...

    I really don't like any FM transmitters. Too spotty. Why not go for one of the iPod direct connect models? Like the Peripheral iPod adapter or the USA-spec that adds an additional aux input.

    Just my opinion.

    As long as it's temporary, it'll work. Do you have any Fry's Electronics near you? They have quite a selection.

    Thanks for checking Noe. We have Jimmy's Car stereo. Alot of my friends got subs from there (with installation) for a really good price. Example: One of my teammates got 2 12" subs with box and installation for $400.00

    I bought one of these at an Apple store ... on their wall of accessories. Pro: charges the iPod. Con: Placement is a little difficult with manual transmission. When I use mine it's too close to the passenger. Who never seems to be able to listen to a complete song ... not good.

    Does anyone know which ipod adapter gives better sound quality, the one that plugs into the ipod headphone connector, or the adapter that plugs into the ciggarate lighter and charges your ipod at the same time?(griffin makes it)
