    Recommend me a iPod FM transmitter thingy

    As the title says. I don't know anything about iPods at all, and my sister wants one of these for Christmas. There seem to be a bewildering number to choose from, so help needed! Guess I'll spend £30 tops.

    Recommendations purrrleeeeze!

    Thanks guys - think I'm going with that Belkin Tunebase, as it's going to be used exclusively in a car.

    Re: Recommend me a iPod FM transmitter thingy

    Turns out that she has the latest iPod nano, which is shorter and wider than the older version. Anyone know if it fits in the Belkin Tunebase?

    It seems that there are various sizer trays, but it's not clear to me if there is going to be one for the latest nano...:

    Dunno, but if you get something else, make sure the lighter socket is not too recessed - in my car it's impossible to get one of these to fit cos the hole is in the ashtray! Also, all the cheap ones I've had have been poor in use, I'd stick to a big brand for one of these.
