Ofcom is legalising the use of FM transmitters that allow iPods and
other MP3 players to play through car radios.

The use of devices, such as Griffin's "iTrip", was banned in the UK as
their transmissions can interfere with broadcasts by legal radio

However, the device and other similar accessories for MP3 players have
been widely available online.

Now certain FM transmitters, which can be tuned to spare frequencies,
will be legal from 8 December.
