    I personally use [​IMG]this fm transmitter.

    Handy because it has a usb slot for charging, ideal if you only have one 12v socket in your car.

    But.....if your stereo has an aux input then that is always the best option for sound quality.

    Budget one [​IMG]here

    Use the aux cable myself. Bought an FM transmitter for my mp3 player but could never find a decent clear channel to use.

    Probably as a usb drive, but Bluetooth is a decent option

    I use a bluetooth headunit I bought from Aldi for 50 quid (UK) and stream music via the AD2P protocall (you don't have to do anything - that's just what the bluetooth method is streaming is called).

    Works perfectly - I can even change tracks from the stereo headunit!

    If you are going to do it this way though - remember to turn off Wifi so you don't get interference / cutting out

    I got a mutant head unit from dynamic sounds and use it for Bluetooth streaming and calls - it works brilliantly!
