Default Does the Zen V have a FM transmitter so you can play it in the car?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

No, it does not. You can buy an FM transmitter designed to plug into the headphone jack, though. Belkin makes such a device.

To be quite honest, though, an FM transmitter should be an absolute last resort, because sound quality through such a device is considered to be poor at best.

The Zen V Plus does NOT have a built-in FM transmitter. The Zen V Plus has an FM Radio, but again, not a transmitter. I believe you may be confusing the two.

I use a Belkin FM transmitter with my Zen V + with no issue's. You need to ensure the volume on the player is high to get a good signal. I may even move to a non European firmware version so I can get it louder.

Yeah, you should be able to use an FM Transmitter with the Zen V, but be careful with volume level of the transmitter. A volume level too high can distort the volume due to over-modulation.
