Absolutely hate the way my new Ipod sounds in the car over the Belkin\nwireless transmitter. Not enough volume, files made from albums or tapes\ndistort, and I have to change the station every 10 miles (which, I'm told,\nwould happen with ITrip, too).\n\nBut the guy at Precision Electronics says a line-in device does NOT exist\nfor my 2004 Ford Taurus car stereo system. It's in development but no\ndelivery date has been mentioned. He also says that a wired transmitter\nsystem would eliminate all the problems I'm having with my Belkin\ntransmitter (and would cost 1/3rd the price of a new line-in system and\nwould be available NOW).\n\nMy questions:\n\nWhat's the difference between wired transmitting and line-in?\n\nPotential related question: With line-in, I'd presumably use the same\ncord I'm currently using to attach a tape deck to my computer to import\nsongs from tapes (via Garage Band). How does my IPod connect to my car\nstereo with a wired transmitter? Still via the Belkin? If so, how does\nthe Belkin attach to the stereo? Right now, the only connectors it has\nare for input to the IPod and a port for the car lighter jack (worthless\nbecause the Belkin needs to be in the back seat, near the antennae, to\ntransmit successfully).\n\nHow does sound quality (wired transmitter versus line-in) compare?\n\nIf I go with wired transmitting, should I change from Belkin to ITrip?\nDoes ITrip yield better sound or just save me the expense of transmitter\nbatteries?\n\nThanks.
