Even if your car doesn’t have an input connector or Bluetooth, you can still wirelessly stream your music from your iPhone 5 to your car’s stereo. The Dedicated FM Transmitter for iPhone 5 from Allputer plugs into the audio jack and the Lightning connector and draws power from your phone to transmit your music. It has four FM frequency pre-sets (88.10, 88.30, 88.50, 88.70MHz); simply select one and set your car’s FM radio to the same frequency and start listening. (Hopefully there won’t be a lot of stations at these frequencies in your area.) It has a pass-through socket at the bottom so you can power your phone while you listen, but the images at Allputer show a 30-pin connector on the bottom of the transmitter. It has a 10 meter range, so you’ll be able to use it with other FM radios at home or the office, too. It’s available in black or white for $13.25.
