It’s 2011: Why is your iPod cable still dangling from a casette adapter in your tape deck? If you can’t bring yourself to upgrade to a USB-compatible car stereo—a specialty shop will install one for about $300, head unit included—then at least hardwire an FM converter into your existing radio. The iSimple TranZit IS77 ($90; isimplesolutions.com) bypasses your car stereo’s antenna and feeds the audio from your iPod or iPhone directly to a station preset, which means you get a static-free signal without the hassle of constantly scanning the dial for empty airwaves.
