fm transmitter is easier but your going to have issues if ur driving more then a few miles, even then you still have issues, ur going to have to keep switching stations, and if u get by a radio transmitter, you get screwed. just a warning

I dont think you would have to switch stations. But the main problem is the quality in sound is going to suck.

R u talkin about the mac modulator? I heard those things suck. Ive done modulators plenty of times for all sorts of applications and never had radio station changing problems.

my cd changer was good unless you do any distance driving because you run into radio stations with stronger transmitters. lol it aws funny tho because there was a transmitter right by the free way that when we drove by the radio would freek

There are a few different FM modulators. The iTrip is supposed to be good but I heard the best one is the Monster Cable one. The sound quality from these (in my experiences) are not too good. It's like a really good radio station. Depending on how picky you are... this is easiest.

The most cost effective is to just take that out and put an MP3 deck in. The stereos in those cars I've found to be very problematic. If you have a blank DIN then you can just add another deck for as little ast $150.
