Wireless transmitters are just mini radio stations playing the music you want. As long as you find a clear station, you should be able to use it. The only problem is finding a station that is clear for your whole drive.

The other option is to find a new head unit with an audio jack. I know walmart sells one for 50$ and it also has a USB port to charge the ipod. They sell connectors but I'm not sure of the price off hand, but if your good with a soldering iron you can just hook it up like that.

I have an iTrip and it has worked great over the past 4 years, it is hard on your battery because it draws power from your ipod to power the transmission
I'm not familiar with '05+ radio systems, does it have a tape player? if it does, i suggest this cool doohickey from Belkin. I've had it for 3 months and it works great in my '01. Belkin F8V366 Mobile Cassette Adapter for MP3/CD/MD: Electronics
Nope no tape player....
Any wireless transmitters will work, if a channel is all of a sudden is taken over, just swap to a clear frequency. It's no biggy to switch and even friends in the car behind/in front of you can listen, hehe.

I got a $19.99 (at least back then) from Radio Shack that works like a champ.
