      Answer

      The JamKast FM does have an auto scanning that gives you possible stations to select from to broadcast the signal to broadcast to your FM radio. It works well. Keep in mind that broadcasting FM transmitters are regulated by the FCC for signal strength and depending on the placement of your vehicle's AM/FM antenna and how many radio towers are in close proximity to your location all play a role in how well this type of solution will work for your application.

      Answer

      The JamKast plays any audio that is transmitted through the headphone jack output. Simply plug in the 3.5 mm jack to the headphone connection, turn on the JamKast, tune your radio to the displayed JamKast station and turn an app on through your phone to hear audio through the radio.

    How does the music from my phone get transmitted through my car speakers   (4 Answers)

    By Rosie June 15, 2017.

    • Answer

      You have to set the same frequency on the transmitter and on the car stereo and that's it. When a call comes through the cell phone, it gets automatically routed through the speakers because that's the frequency that the transmitter is set to and the speakers transmit what's playing on that FM frequency in the car that is paired to the transmitter.
