SL100 static and bad FM reception

My SL100 will not work over my FM radio in my car the reception is all static on every channel selected! It used to work fine but the last two months it has been getting worse. I tried an indoor antenna in the car to see if the antenna went bad and it still gets all static  . Radio works fine in home docking with Wi Fi! What can I do?

I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.

How to add an iPod Input into a Stock Radio?


<p>You can add an iPod to a stock radio in your car, even if the plant does not have an auxiliary input or iPod input using a specific number of iPod car accessories. One such accessory is a cassette adapter that plugs into your iPod as a headset, but ends on a cassette tape to your stock cassette radio. However, not all cars have cassette players, thus more accessible to the FM transmitter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod to an FM transmitter, if you connect headphones to the iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the FM transmitter to your cigarette lighter to power and then to the transmitter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press up and down on the transmitter to the FM transmitter to change, you will pass the signal to your radio.

FM RADIO Reception


No, it should work, although it will depend on how good your reception is. This depends on how strong the signal is where you are trying to receive. If you have tried scanning for channels and all you receive is static, it's possible your tuner is bad. Have you tried to tune it to a known good station manusally?

FM RADIO IS ACTING WEIRD


Replace the headphones, see if reception improves. If that fails to resolve, try reset and recovery. If that still fails, the headphone jack is faulty. Replace.
