More expensive but these Yatour units seem to be popular. Have USB and SD inputs as well as a standard 3.5mm aux in:

I bought a headphone FM transmitter some years ago. It is still going strong and sound reproduction is very, very good. It will go back into hibernation when I finally get round to fitting my own head unit. I have either my MP3 player or CD Walkman connected to it in the glovebox when in use.

Just out of curiosity, why do you hate CDs?

I know the feeling about having them around. Back in the day a lot of cars came with racks for the old cassettes, yet nobody seems to have thought about square CD cases when designing gloveboxes or the other storage boxes they fit.
