Just wondering if anyone knows of a clear FM frequency for use with the built in FM transmitter on my 530?

I've been using 107.9, but there are some absolute garbage radio stations breaking in as i travel round the M25.

Anyone know of an alternative frequency that wont get conflicted with as i go round?

I use 87.9 which seems to work over much of the country.

I gave up trying to find one. I could do 200 miles South but once you get to the M25 I think there are just too many stations and you'll be re-tuning all the way into the centre as a clear frequency seems to last about 4 miles!

Line-in might be a better option in London if you can do it. You could go Bluetooth carkit/headunit to stream which should work with many devices but the IO Play system seems the best because it uses a different approach to AVRC profiles than say, a Parrot (which I have). Mike Alder has the IO Play and it works well apparently plus you get handsfree calls which are useless on the TT. Using the parrot I traded FM frequency problems for lots of new bluetooth problems. It should work but AVRC profile isn't in TTs so it becomes an epic fail. (don't get me started - streaming music from my BlackBerry to Parrott now as the TT drove me nuts.)
