Was back I had a iTrip for my 3rd gen iPod. Signal strength was crap. Unless the aerial is inside the car it was pointless. Don't know about any other ones though. Also are they not illegal to sell in the UK still? I know I read somewhere that this might be changing.

Why are they illegal? My bro has been using his for over a year! <- think he has a "Griffin iTrip". Its quite good.

Your transmitting a radio signal which is in a specific frequency. Which is pirate radio basically. There illegal to sell and to use in the UK.

Havent they changed/are about to change this law. They seem widely avaliable now from UK sites - suggesting maybe a change to law has been made to accomodate them.

Just had a bit of search and found this:

In most parts of the world it is legal to own and use the FM transmitter. However, in the UK and the EU it is currently illegal for you to use an FM transmitter – although it is legal for us to sell the FM transmitter and it is legal for you to own the FM transmitter (and to use it outside the EU).
