    I use the Monster cable FM transmitter/charger and Belkin ipod stand that fits in the cup holder. There is a little bit of hiss but my car is so damn loud I don't notice it much.

    FM modulators suck. If your deck has aux inputs, use em. You might need an adapter, but it sounds sooooo much better than the i-trips or whatever they're called. Plus, it'll charge the ipod at the same time.

    I run mine off my aftermarket pioneer headunit. Nothing special, just needed one that had a aux input in the back but it has been great so far. I also have the belkin charger wired up to an extra cigarette lighter that turns on when the car turns on. Sounds great, only thing is that I have a popping/ticking sound (the guy at radioshack told me its from the spark plugs and I was ble to confirm it online ) but its pretty annoying when a song is relatively mellow, but its not that bad.

    I don't have an Ipod, I have a Zen model from Creative Labs. I use the tape deck from the stereo, I tried the FM transmitter and didn't like it (wasn't very consistent, frequency not so clear). The only problem that I have with the cassette hookup is that I go through the tapes and have to replace them like once every three months. I'm going to have to be brave and try that "hardwire" Mod sometime in the near future.

    If you're looking for a deck, just find something that says I-pod ready. You just need the adapter, but can control everything from the deck. Pretty sweet.
