Being somewhat of an audiophile (read: snob) I’m not a big fan of FM transmitters for iPods. The sound quality is sub-par and you end up having to hunt for open stations far more often than is safe while driving at 60 MPH.
That said, it’s not always possible to have a direct iPod connection to your car’s stereo system. Heck, even auxiliary inputs are still somewhat rare on most head units. And if you have the factory radio that comes in most cars, you’re pretty much out of luck.
Enter the FM transmitter – the only economical solution for using an iPod in most cars. FM trannies come in every shape and size but the new MobileTune from Speck Products takes the cake in terms of design:

Soft leather, chrome details and a glowing, blue dial indicator give a distinctive look while the transmitter offers seamless iPod integration through your car stereo for the ultimate in-car experience.

At US$59.95 Speck’s MobileTune may strike you as a bit spendy, but you have to pay a little more if you want better materials. And hey, it’s better than another piece of black plastic in your car.
