Hi, I wanted an fm transmitter for my sony walkman and found this one at £4.95 on Zavvi, price has been similar at play, however, I got one of those £2.50 Zavvi vouchers so this ended up costing me £2.45 including delivery...not too shabby in my opinion.

Now you can use your iPod, PDA, MP3, CD, cassette player, PC, or laptop to listen to your favorite tunes through any FM stereo receiver. The Belkin TuneCast II Mobile FM Transmitter wirelessly connects portable music players to your car or home stereo quickly and easily using FM radio waves. Just plug the TuneCast II into the headphone jack of your iPod, PDA,MP3, CD, or cassette player; or connect it to your PC or laptop computer. Tune your car stereo or receiver to any clear FM frequency, and enjoy your iPod music experience with more sound and fewer wires.

We add a great convenience feature with our unique Auto ON/OFF function. It frees you from having to manually toggle your TuneCast II''s ON/OFF switch by simply powering on when an audio signal is detected. If no signal is detected for a period of 60 seconds, your TuneCast II switches off. This innovation preserves battery life while making your outstanding mobile audio experience simpler to enjoy.

TuneCast II also features 4 programable memory slots allowing you to save the clearest station wherever you go.

TuneCast II includes a Belkin Mobile Power Cord that connects to your car's cigarette lighter so you can preserve your batteries as you play your tunes on the road (will not charge the TuneCast II).

nice spot thanks voted hot

I have one of these, it works well. I couldn't find a frequency that was empty for my entire route to work though, kept getting interference, so took the aerial off the car and it works much better.

Nice and simple solution

Looks very similar to one I got free with a Staples order a while back.
Does the job.
Heat added.

Got one of these and it works well in the car. Just requires a bit of experimentation to find the right frequency.

As the CD player in my New (to me) car doesn't play MP3s I was looking at these but have 2 worries. This is 1 - how big a problem is interference? If I have to take the aerial off I can't use the radio and won't get traffic info.

The other is that the Zavvi site says: " Belkin Mobile Power Cord that connects to your car's cigarette lighter so you can preserve your batteries as you play your tunes on the road (will not charge the TuneCast II)". Eh? What does it do then? Charge my MP3 player? I don't need a charger for that as its batteries last ages and I can charge it conveniently enough at home or work, but the tunecast will live in my car - how do I charge it?

Can't help with what interference will be like in Glasgow I'm afraid. Initially I manually search through the range to find the biggest gap, but on my drive to work this wasn't actually the best to use. A few days of trail and error sorted me out. I don't remove my aerial.

The TuneCast takes a 2 AAA batteries. When it's plugged in, the batteries are disabled. It works very well actually.

The interference became annoying to me after a while, but I'm very picky, some might not even notice. I travel 35 miles as well to work, so if you travel less you'll find it easier to get a frequency that's clean.

The cable is just to power the device instead of using batteries, it won't charge the batteries if you put rechargeables in.

Cracking...tuned it to 105 and crystal clear with no interferance, powers down as soon as I turn off the key.
Well pleased
