How to Increase the FM Range on an iPod

0.5w transmitter

The iPod allows you to take your music collection wherever you go. Several third-party FM transmitters allow you to use your car’s FM stereo to listen to your music, but if there are FM radio stations in your area, you might experience drops as these stations take over the frequency your transmitter is on. There are a few steps you can take to increase the range and signal strength of your iPod’s FM transmitter.

Things You’ll Need:* Compatible FM transmitter

* 1 Set your iPod’s FM transmitter to use the lower frequencies in the FM band. These would be down near the upper 80s and lower 90s on your FM dial.
* 2 Remove your car antenna. This will prevent more powerful radio stations from taking over the frequency your transmitter is on. Since the iPod and the FM transmitter will be in the car with you, the stereo will be able to pick them up without the antenna.
* 3 Use “Airplane Mode” if you’re using an iPhone. All cellular and data transmissions will be blocked, which leaves less signal interference for your FM transmitter to deal with. Tap “Settings” on your iPhone, choose “General” and tap the switch next to “Airplane Mode” to turn it on.
* 4 Save any open frequencies you find on your car’s stereo. If you’re experiencing problems with a certain frequency, you’ll be able to quickly switch to another one that might be more open.
