- I'm looking for an FM transmitter for my new Razr Maxx. Is there one out there that doesn't have to take up my phone's charging spot in my car? I'd prefer not to get a battery operated one... Are there any that can charge and operate from a USB port? (My phone's car charger has an extra port in it)03-12-2012 11:11 PM
- Check out the parrot system it needs to be installed but it is a great system and allows everything from calls to mp3 to streeming. Little costly. But it was well worth it. I now have one in both my wifes car and my truck. Best of luck.

It's more than an FM transmitter, but I thought the FM transmitter capabilities were pretty good (I tried a Plantronics version before the Roadster and the Plantronics was junk).
It's battery powered (I know you said you didn't want that) but works great and is a breeze to install (sure beats a Parrot wired in installation - but the Parrot probably offers better sound and more features). Easy to take from vehicle to vehicle (I drive rentals a lot).
Just my 2 cents.03-20-2012 09:00 AM

- Amazon.com: Monster RadioPlay 300 Universal Full Spectrum FM Transmitter (MBL-FM XMTR300): MP3 Players & Accessories
This is the one I use at work. Does a great job! I found mine for $20.00.03-21-2012 05:58 AM

That one hooked up through the data jack on the iPod (not the headphone jack), but could still send an unwanted surge to your phone depending on how its wired. So, I suggest if you do get one of these, unplug it BEFORE you turn off and turn on your car, if just to be safe.
Regardless, I've found Monster FM transmitters to be so-so, at best. Most brands on the market today are so-so, at best, as well, so its definitely not the best option. I have an old Kennsington model for my iPod and its AWESOME...still works after a good 8 years of ownership and gives a radio-quality signal (no static, barely any quality degradation). But, the new 'Liquid FM' models from the company are horrid, so avoid those.
Your best bet is:
1- Get a new stereo with an auxiliary jack on it or with BT capability.
2- See if you can retro-fit your stereo with a jack (easier on some cars, a lot harder/near impossible on others).
3- Buy a new car with a jack03-21-2012 09:27 AM
