I think I'm going to look at an A/B switch instead of FM tx.
If your stereo has AV inputs, like mine, you can plug into that. That is how I connect.

Of course, he's got the only Stereo BBQ grill with Aux inputs anyone has ever seen. He had it built custom.

One advantage of going with one of the newer stereos that has the iPod dock-type connector as an input is that you can stash the iPod away someplace it will be safe from dropping, getting wet, etc... The cable will charge and connect the iPod and most will allow you to control the iPod from the deck's controls.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Exactly. That's what's nice about the Clarion unit I have. You run the dock connector to some place nice and dry and you control it elsewhere. If you get the remote control with display and mount it in the cockpit, you don't even need to touch the stereo itself. Mount it below as well.

It's a Clarion XMA-1.

You can try this. I have one on my Sirius radio. It blocks FM signals to the stereo reciever when it is receiving imput from the sat radio's FM transmitter. I think you would be able to use it with your I pod xmitter as well. Best Buy sells them if you didn't want to buy it online. Worth a shot anyway.

Yup... I have a Clarion unit with the remote control on the boat, and an Alpine unit in the truck.

Clarion makes one too. It's better in that it actually disconnects the external antenna which all but eliminates bleed through from strong stations. Sound quality still isn't as good as tape adapter or direct input.
