Since I started this thread here is my follow-up evaluation:

You REALLY, REALLY need to experiment with "empty" frequencies to find one that will work.

When I first tried FM transmitting with my N97 it was with a clock radio and the N97 being chock-a-block to the back of the unit. Quality was poor but I was at the low end of the FM spectrum.

In my truck I experimented until a found a "wider" empty spot at the high end of the spectrum and could leave my N97 about 18" from the radio dash interface. It worked just fine until I drove past some power lines which were putting out a lot of interference. It just got blanked.

The FM feature then is something that needs a lot of trial-and-error before you can find a good frequency band, but then there are no guarantees.
