ipod FM modulator/transmitter

Hi, this is my first post. just bought a 98. I'm trying to make my ipod to work using FM modulator/transmitter, but it seem that the cig lighter socket is so shallow that it doesn't have connection. have anyone was able to play the ipod thru FM modulator/transmitter? what adapter or kind of FM modulator/transmitter were you using? thanks all for the reply. just a couple pics of my 986 to share, nothing special.

I use Itrip for my Ipod nano It cost $50 in apple store, i suggest you get it on ebay for $31 including shipping

or you can buy Griffin iTrip Auto FM Transmitter and Auto Charger for iPod



Again, its cheaper on ebay to buy it.

SAMUR6I,

If you have a CDR-220 radio it is pretty easy to have a direct connection.

Basically, you need to order 1 part from Becker for the CDR-220 and then a part from Monster Cable that plugs into the Ipod.

Here is another option :

I used this in my Jag ( and tried it in the Box ) and it works great !

Hope that helps...

Thanks,

Nick

thanks for the info. I have CDR-210 in dash cd without cd changer. i'll go with Griffin Itrip or Roadtrip. does Griffin charger fit in the cig lighter? anybody have experienced with it? the reason i asked because i used a different ipod car charger and it didn't charged thru the shallow cig lighter. it charged in other cars.
