    Constant plugging and unplugging the audio plug out on my cell phones and car stereo causes them to wear out. This solves that problem. The "FM channel connection" is horrible because of too many stations in my area. I connect via Bluetooth and it is great.

    Previously I used a himbox plugged into the 3.5 mm aux port of a Sony CD head unit This worked reasonably well but, aside from the 2 wires coming from one of the two USB charging outlets, I could never use the button on the microphone pod to answer any phone calls. I used in the past, a couple of FM transmitter devices and another old model with a dummy cassete which contacted the play tape head in order to use a portable CD player in the car. These were very unsatisfactory workarounds as they were subject to alternator and spark plug noise. This Anker Roav unit is a pleasant surprise and a joy to use. The sonics are pretty decent using the FM tuner but channel selection is very important here. Of course, the hard wired option provides a better listening choice but you"re stuck with having to route and secure a (not included) 3.5 mm double ended stereo phone plug cable. As my head unit didn't have a USB music input, I'm glad to have that option available. The Android phone app is reasonably useful. I used it to turn off the voice connection prompt. It does however, place an intermittent banner on my phone when I'm using a Bluetooth speaker away from my car. Hopefully I can find a way to turn this off in a menu setting. All in all I'm happy with this purchase. I can see this useful as a travel device for use in a rental car.
