Was driving back from picking up dinner tonight with the wife (pizza!) and we started talking about what apps might be good to come out with. One that would be really good is some sort of FM transmitter app. Something that could run and would allow you to play pandora or your iTunes collection through your FM radio instead of using a cord. Anyone else think that this would be a good idea? Please comment on any other idea also. =)

You can buy a FM modulator, but I'm not sure if the 3G iPhone could send out FM signals. I could be wrong.
Yeah, I knew that I could buy an FM unit, but it would be great if there was an app that made the iPhone send out an FM signal to the radio without anything additonal. Would be really cool! :cool:

More of a hardware issue (limitation) rather than an app thing

Well since there is no built in FM in the iPhone, (if there was it would be available like remote is designed by Apple) it seems not possible to design an app for that.

And why go through all the effort to do so for FM quality sound. What would be cool is if the designers for new CD players either by manufacturer or 3rd party made a wifi unit able to receive the audio signals.

You would still need a phone charger for long rides as the drain on the phone would be there.

But all that trouble for inferior FM sound, I don't see it.
