Remember those old FM transmitters that were, once upon a time, the only way to get music from your iPod to your car stereo? The TuneLink Auto BT streaming adapter is the modern-day equivalent, letting you add wireless music capability to any car stereo, using an FM transmitter (though it also has a 1/8-inch output so that you can run a cable between the TuneLink and the auxiliary input on your car stereo for better sound quality) to . It plugs into a car’s cigarette lighter and has a USB port for charging a device such as an iPhone or iPod Touch. TuneLink is controlled by a free app (available on the iTunes App Store; there’s also an Android version) that manages pairing the device with your iPhone or iPod Touch, finds open FM frequencies, and — of course — plays your tunes. The TuneLink also has a cool Share feature that lets passengers with the app connect to your device (and car stereo) and pick the music. Just first make sure they share your taste in tunes first.
