Correct, I stated my case badly. Another note about fm transmitters, I had one a while back and it didn't work well and only offered a limited choice of fm frequencies. Then I had a third party radio with all inputs, but now I have a new car in which they saw fit to give me aux in and an ipod connection (but not a complimentary ipod). So I got a cheap fm transmitter and it works really well, covers all fm frequencies but the signal strength is strong enough to even overcome a local station.
Got it from www.alldaymall.com, www.meritline.com also carry them, less than $10 including postage.

Glad to hear you got an FM transmitter that works for you. But I have to ask...why aren't you using the AUX in?

I'm curious what fm transmitter you are happy with. I have not had the best luck with Meritline fm transmitters, they work but features don't work as advertised.

Because it's just not convenient. I would still want to supply dc power (no problem). It's just a lot easier for me this way. I got an fm transmitter from Amazon, that worked fine but only for a few months, then volume went low. I got current one from alldaymall.com. It works fine so far and although it makes sense to tune it to an unused station, the fm signal is strong enough to overpower a local station.
