This message is for all those iPod owners. I have a 20GB iPod and am having trouble getting it to transmit through FM radio. It makes a weakish connection on 88.3MHz and then loses it. I am using a Belkin TuneCast II mobile FM transmitter which should enable me to play the iPod through the car or home stereo but alas and alack no.

Suggestions?

Angie,

I dont own an iPod (yet) but I remember reading sumthin about the Monster brand FM transmitter/charger I was going to purchase with the iPod.

Was along the lines of .... a particular freq at a particular time might have some interference and alter the transmit quality (to bad) on that freq. The Monster FM transmitter had 8 freq to choose from ...and the instructions said to change freq if this occured. Is it bad on all freq the Belkin has ?? The Monster had 8 small buttons to change frequencies ....

Angie,

Told you that you should have stuck with the old technology (CDs) that us dummies can operate. {smile}

What is the weather like out west. It is a lovely sunny 25C day here and we have just got out of pool.

Anthony, the Belkin doesn't have pre-sets. I can programme 4 settings of my own choosing, the trouble is finding them stable enough to choose them in the first place. I did find an iPod discussion forum and will pose the question there and see if they can help. Thanks anyway.

Brian, yes you warned me. And I did listen, but didn't quite have enough gadgets to keep me company out here on the sheep station. 17kms to the mail box which gets delivered Thursdays. Nearest neighbour is 1 hours drive away and the only company I have is Ivan playing the bagpipes out in the yard, 2 work dogs, 2 feral cats, 2 goldfish and 5 billion flies. No satellite TV, but plenty of country music to keep me company. Thank goodness for the internet despite it being a little unreliable in the connection at times.
