Belkin TuneCast Auto Live

Belkin claims its latest FM transmitter is the only gadget of its kind to use your GPS-calculated location to help find the best frequency on which to send songs from your iPhone to your car radio. Maybe it does, but a scan through the band works just as well, and the TuneCast found a free but hissy gap. If you have a cassette player in your car, a tape adaptor will give you better sound quality, but those of you with CD players will find the TuneCast a solid, workaday alternative.

Griffin TuneFlex AUX with SmartClick

If you car stereo does have a handy auxiliary input - or a cassette deck - there's a better way to connect your iPhone than just plugging it in: Griffin's TuneFlex AUX with SmartClick. It fits into the ciggie lighter socket for power, and has a dock connector at the end of a flexible rod so you can position your iPhone for convenience. It has a 3.5mm output to feed either tape adaptor or aux port. But the best bit is the wee wireless remote control that you can attach to your steering wheel. Play/pause, skip tracks, active shuffle - the remote puts all these controls a thumb press away so you won't get distracted from the road ahead. The remote also detaches from the wheel clip for safe storage.
