Default Bluetooth Setup for mp3 players

I was looking around on Crutchfield and found this...

I was looking for an FM transmitter when I found this. The only FM transmitters I can find are car ones with the 12v adapter for power. Is there any that you don't have to use in your car?

I have a Belkin Tunecast II FM Transmitter and I DONíT RECOMMEND THIS OR ANY FM transmitter, works on batteries or cig lighter power socket. These are cheap and susceptible to radio interference. At home I use headphone jack to 2 RCA jack and run through my amp, world of difference. For boom box Iím using headphone jack to headphone jack and plugging into line in on boom box, picked up both cords for under $10.00. Sounds a lot better than spending $199.99 for the Scosche UBHK Bluetooth, for that much $ Iíd buy a second player w/more capacity.

I bought some cheap FM transmitters off ebay some months back. The seller, vital_buy, has gotten some new transmitters since I bought this and this.
First one, this, is the best one by far! Though it only uses 107.X channels, it has superior sound quality compared to the other one, although the other one worked up to 100 meters! It doesn't cost much, so everyone can afford one. I use mine in the car, and also with this shower radio, also from ebay. Listening to my mp3 player in the shower is strangly satisfactory ^^

I've got a cheap FM that I got at Target. It works. Not as good as a cassette adaptor though. I have a couple of those and use them when I can. If I only have CD input, I connect a 6' headphone extension between the transmitter and the Zen and it works fairly well. Rental cars and my boat.
