I tried using my N8's FM transmitter in the car and the signal is very weak. Infact when the handset is in the car no signal is received. In order to get any sort of respectable audio coming out of the car's stereo I have to stand out of the car and hold the handset next to the antena. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
Yeh-it's way toooooo weak. I tried sony ericsson transmitter and sound from radio was clear within 5 meters from antenna (even trough brick and wood wall) - Nokia N8 cant even handle 1 meter... and sound quality is terrible-static........
I have to admit, it's not quite as good as in the N86. But as long as I have it in near the central console of the radio, it works OK. In some cars it works even better. I suppose it depends on where the antenna is located.
well my N8 was replaced under warranty-because of purple screen issue, well current N8 has this issue too, but i have given up on it...anyway-previous had and current has same transmitting strenght - poor....
also chose a higher frequency, generaly these ones at 10x.x work better than the ones at 8x.x
And if you have an in-car charger, plug it in to the phone, it often improves the antenna perforance.
