    It's okay for when your Phone doesn't have a plug. Con is is doesn't sound as loud as it does when phone is plugged in

    I think that the roav does pretty much what it's advertised to do very well. The only thing that I can say that I don't like is there being a slight amount of background noise that you can hear when the volume is turned down to a low setting. But Once you turn the volume up it's not even noticeable, so not much to complain about

    I bought this for my Ford work van, which only has AM/FM radio. Replaced an old Belkin transmitter that stopped working. This one is awesome!! Very loud and clear, Bluetooth connects quickly, and usb charging is a plus. It's smaller than it looks in pictures, which I like. I use it mostly for music and navigation, handsfree calls are another plus!

    The device does exactly what it says it does. A two USB car charger/FM transmitter. It is very easy to set up and, at least in my area, works perfectly. I've zero static when using a clear radio station (pure white noise) and the sound that comes out is good for me. My only complaints are minor at best. Certain apps on my phone, like Spotify, tend to have very low volume while using the transmitter via Bluetooth (I've yet to test it with the AUX option) and there is an issue now and again when my phone refuses to connect to it automatically when the car starts. A quick restart of my phone fixes this issue quite easily, however. Overall? A great option if you want to play your music/e-books/podcasts in your car and have no other options available to you.

    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.
