FM Modulator really isnt that bad...If your gonna pull ur deck out to hook up the y adaptor, you might as well go forth with the Modulator..Though it is like $15 more..But hey...

My suggestion...Go with the Modulator...Or if you have an Aux jack on ur HU you can go with that...

Do a search for SAT-SWB. There is a sticky about it. It is basically a relay that switches out your car antenna, eliminating interference from powerful local radio stations.

You might need antenna adapters, but the installation is fairly simple if you can get to the antenna plug and jack. It's fairly inexpensive, too. About $20(US).

You could always do the cassette adaptor if you have a cassette deck on your unit...

Try this - http://www.logjamelectronics.com/piegm9aux.html

If your head unit has CD Changer controls, this is the best (albeit most expensive) way to go. I just used the Ford version to hard wire my Starmate Replay to my factory radio (with the help of a $6.99 adapter from Radio Shack), and the sound quality is infinitely better than the FM Modulator.

I've been looking for a source on the adapters for my 03 silverado...the antenna end is way too small, and the FM Mod end is too big to fit into the radio...
