semi-solution for EUR 100?

1 MP3-player with FM reciever (EUR 50)
1 FM transmitter (EUR 30)
1 12V to USB adapter (as you need 2 USB ports or 2 12v ports) - EUR 20
Plugged in and inside the arm rest. Arm rest closed.

I programmed some of my favourite channels into my MP3-player and plugged in the FM-transmitter, set under channel #1 on my radio. It works...

So now I can receive 97.2 on my car radio.

Still not happy:
1. switching channels through my MP3-player is a hassle (so chose to preset the best channel only)
2. no RDS / TI
3. reception in the city good, on the highway poor.

Any other ideas to enhance this process?
- I cannot find anything to increase the FM reception on my MP3-player
