FM radio transmitters.
Girlfriend's car has a factory CD player with no aux input, so I bought a belkin FM transmitter to plug into her galaxy s.
We've found that in rural areas it is acceptable sound quality until you get into or close to a town. Sometimes it even seems to get interference from nearby traffic. Quite a fickle device, at some points it's better to hold the transmitter in your hand or lay it on your lap. Guess it uses your body as an antenna to some extent.
Has anyone had better experiences with similar devices? Are there any DIY hardware hacks to increase the reception/amplify the signal?
I'm thinking maybe cracking the thing open and improving the antenna somehow.
I'd give the model number if I had it in front of me right now.
