    I've been through several cheap fm transmitters. This one is the only one that works and works well so it's worth the extra money. The fact that my phone charges at the same time it's working is awesome so that I don't have to worry with another cord. My only issue with it, and the reason I didn't give it five stars, is that you can only pick from 3 frequencies. If there's not another station on at least one of the frequencies you're good, but if frequencies 88.1, 98.1, and 107.9 have fm stations in your area, then you may want to think of something else because you'll get a lot of static from the transmitter if you do.

    This FM transmitter is the worst thing I have ever bought. It barely works and no matter how money stations you try you cannot get rid of a background static playing with the music. Never buy this product ever!!!!! Worst decision ever and because I thought Best Buy's return policy was 30 days still instead of the 14 days it is now I'm stuck with this piece of junk. The only thing it does right is charge you phone.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    The product works good after I searched and found a dead channel. Has alittle static but it can be cleaned up by turning the volume on ipod touch generation 1 down to 50-60% and ajusting base and treble on radio.Wish it had a charging unit built in but not a big deal. I have a 2006 f350 standard cab super duty xl, basic am fm stereo. For a fast easy out instead of buying a new stereo the insignia fm transmitter does what it says.

    I drive an older car and have to use these to play music through my iPhone. This is by far one of the better quality ones I have purchased. I can also charge my phone while playing music; a definite plus!

    This FM transmitter has good audio quality and charges your iphone as promised. The challenge is that in many places none of the 3 channels you can select are free in the FM band. If you are driving long ways you have to keep searching and can't always find a good station. This is going to a problem with any unit like this one.

    I've had this car audio adapter for three weeks now and am pleased with how well it works. Once you find a good fm station the sound is really clear. Only thing I wish was better is that it had a scanner that also automatically changed your station for you, because if you have to change stations while driving you first have to press the scan button then look what channel it is then change the channel on your stereo and sometimes you have to do this a couple times before finding the right station. This can be hard to do while driving because it become distracting from keeping yours eyes on the road.

    Overall the product is good it is a radio tuner/phone charger in one. My only issue would be that you have to keep constantly adjusting the channel to find an unused channel.
