    Default FM transmitter

    Plain and simple, I'm looking for an fm transmitter for my car. Preferably one that someone has a really tested with the M8. I bought one of Amazon that does not work well at all. And I know how to use these transmitters well, I had one for my iPhone for years. Thanks all

    I am using this Belkin Bluetooth to FM transmitter. I then use AutomateIT pro app to turn on TuneInRadio and CarHomeUltra apps when it connects and disconnects to this BT device.
    Works quite well, even in a crowded FM signal market like Dallas.

    While I appreciate the response, 80 bucks is a little out of my price range. Anyone have any cheaper options?

    Right. No Aux. Just a Nissan versa with a cigarette lighter, a CD player, and a radio

    FM Modulators are FM transmitters on steroids. Amazon.com: Scosche FM-MOD02 Universal Audio Input FM Modulator for iPod, Satellite Radio or Portable Music Player: Electronics
    You get an AUX input that is powered by an FM signal( which is powered by the car so there is less chance of radio interference so the signal is stronger).

    There is also getting a new stereo but that would end up costing you $200 minimum with installation, unless you know someone who does stereo installations on the side.

    Go with an FM modulator. They are light years better than FM transmitters.

    With the M8, why don't you just use the front facing Boomsound speakers. Cost $0.

    Because as good as the M8's audio is the car stereo is still superior.

    I've had the best luck (in terms of signal clarity) with the Monster branded FM modulator.
