Default 3.5mm Cable or FM Transmitter

I was just wondering which provides the better audio quality, a simple 3.5mm cable from the vision M to the car stereo or an FM transmitter.

Thanks

Yup, using the A/V out instead of the headphone jack.

Double Zenchick's threads and BobbyRS's replies. Using the dongle with direct cable to connection to car stereo [or home stereo for that matter] will always give a better signal. Be sure to turn your volume all the way down and lock the player to help extend your ZVM's battery life!
