    you can use an Ipod docking adapter with the 3.5mm plug to go into the aux socket, I bought mine from Ebay, works pretty well, but all the controls remain on the Ipod .... not usefull for driving unless on Random.

    Belkin do a receiver transmitter. About the size of a matchbox, 3.5mm jack from it plugs into your nano, match the car radio frequency to match one of about 6 preset bands on the Belkin, and you're listening. You need to play with the bass eq to stop it sounding like a radio. Sound quality is excellent depending onthe general radio reception in your area and you'll probably find one of the preset bands on the belkin suits the sound better - even though they all receive and play. Best thing is ... the Belkin only costs about 8. Bargain

    Thanks guy's ! Kevin , thanks for the link - it says on the advert that you can adjust the volume on the radio , have you found this the case ? Have you found the sound quality ok ? Maestro , are you able to use the radio controls with the Belkin to change the ipod or do you have to use the ipod controls ? Cheers .
