I have a 1+ hour commute to work on public transportation and my iPod is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I use it with an FM adaptor in the car and on the boat, it also interfaces through the audio panel in our airplane, the home stero and the stereo on the Harley. I use it everywhere.
While you loose some fidelity through the FM modulator, it does offer some advantages on the boat. By plugging the unit into the 12v outlet in the cockpit, it keeps the ipod handy to the helm. That lets me select the tunes I want to hear or mute the music if there is important VHF traffic. I'd thought about replacing the stereo to get a direct interface, but the FM modulator gives me cockpit remote control with no extra expense or install issues.
