    My system - stock single CD player. I don't want an aftermarket system

    My devices:
    Droid phone - listening to Pandora or my music, and Bluetooth for phone
    iPad - my music only
    Sirius Starmate - lots of channels

    I looked at the FM Transmitters today while I was at Radio Shack. It seems the Monster iPlay may be a good solution. However, in other threads I've read these FM transmitters are awful.

    I thought about connecting my older Sirius Starmate radio, and am still working the issue of running the antenna cable. Plus hiding the receiver every time I get out of the truck.

    Anyone want to offer up suggestions, and/or opinions of the product you are suggesting?

    I use my Jupiter Jack sometimes on my phone for Pandora. But like you said the quality is not that great. Sorry that probably wasn't any help.

    Go on Amazon and search for a transmitter/charge combo for your particular phone. Most likely, there will be one for a tenth the price that you would pay in a retail store. I found one for my Droid X that was about $15 shipped. Transmits and charges and the signal is very strong. Can go through Boston and won't get any static. Also, check to see if the transmitter will tune to 87.9. A lot only go to 88.1, but 87.9 is fantastic. Always a clear channel here in New England.
