  • USB FM modulator.

    I would never use a modulator for my main audio in my car but I thought others might find a use for this.

    From website:
    The wireless USB powered SoundFeeder is a multi-purpose stereo transmitter suitable for use with many types of portable audio equipment. The most popular applications include use with MP3 players, Pocket PC handhelds (HP/Compaq iPaq, Toshiba e-Series, Dell Axim X5), Franklin eBookman, Portable CD and cassette players, computers, and more.

    SoundFeeder provides far more options than the traditional audio cassette-type CD adapters that tend to become noisy over time. While the cassette type adapters may produce similar sound quality, they are becoming less and less compatible with many of the in-dash CD and FM stereos found in newer vehicles. The SoundFeeder adapter operates by transmitting the audio signal through a blank channel on the car's FM radio.

    How It Works
    The SoundFeeder's audio cord plugs into the headphone jack of your respective consumer electronic audio device (e.g. MP3 player, Pocket PC, Multimedia PDA, Portable CD or Cassette player, etc.) Then, you simply tune your car's radio to a blank station on the FM band between 88 - 95MHz and tune the SoundFeeder into that frequency. Your music or other audio will then be transmitted wirelessly through the radio in stereo.

    How do I get sound to my car?

    I use that one (sf150c) from Arkon. Picked it up at Fry's for about 20 bucks. Just in the early stages of putting together a carputer and, as I don't have an AUX input, I needed something to get my music to the head unit until I go HU'less. It's a good idea (the USB powered bit) that works reasonably well but I wouldn't use it permanently. The signal can drift and it needs to be adjusted occasionally. A digital tuner would be great. I've seen others in the forums who have used this same device. I've found it handy for using with my laptop to broadcast to the nearest stereo in the house while I'm working.

          I know, right. I just have been monitoring the boards so closely lately I was almost certain I didn't see something like this. At least not this particular model.
