SanDisk's quick rise to No. 2 in U.S. MP3-player sales has spurred the creation of a fledgling accessories market, including the introduction of the first speaker system dedicated to Sansa e200 (and Sansa c200) owners. Now you can listen to your tunes in your car--without the need for a generic, or worse, a Made for iPod FM transmitter--using Maximo Products' $69.99 SAN-360 Car FM Transmitter and Charger.
This in-line-style FM beamer can tune into "all FM frequencies" (between 88.1 and 107.9 MHz), includes three presets buttons, and can actually search for open frequencies, though this last feature didn't seem to work well. The minimally attractive unit plugs right into a car lighter port and has a four-foot cable that terminates in a Sansa dock connector. The model works with all e200-series, c200-series, and c100-series players. If your unit doesn't work properly, make sure that it has the latest firmware (which occurs automatically with the Sansa Firmware Updater).
The blue backlit display is basic but easy to read. Adjust channels using the tiny but accessible up and down arrow buttons, and hold to scan. Hold down one of the preset buttons on any channel to make it a preset. Unfortunately, there is no line-in port for other audio devices.
