I’m impulsive. I stopped by the local Radio Shack this morning while I was running around on errands, and I picked up the Monster iCarPlay wireless FM radio transmitter.
It works a treat. (I’ve been watching the six hours of Lord of the Rings documentary material lately. Pardon my occasional Kiwi-isms and BritSpeak.)
It works on just about every band I tested it on, some better than others. It’s a clearer sound than the iTrip. It’s still not as good a sound as listening to it over your earpiece, but talk shows sound just fine. And that’s what I want the car radio transmitter for. I’ll be listening mostly to talk radio on my iPod. And since that starts on an AM signal, I’m not losing too much quality here. That sounds fine. Music sounds a little compressed, but it’s not a huge deal.
Plus, it charges the iPod at the same time. Pretty cool.
Thanks for the recommendation, Jeff.
