    What you'd expect

    I bought an early 2000's car recently and picked this up to play my phone through the stero. It works as you wanted. I was able to find a station around here empty enough to provide pretty good quality. Much better than ones years ago that pretty much just didn't work at all. Anyways, there were a few things I would give as downsides. I had to read the directions to set it up. The way to set the station and phone was a little more complicated than I was expecting, but maybe my expectations were too high. Anyways, that and the fact it only comes with an IPhone charging cable.. Why don't manufacturers understand that the vast majority of phones sold are not IPhones..

    Model:BT5-696-2 SKU:6239176 This device out of the box is great. When I opened it the packaging looked well put together and everything was easy to read and understand. I plugged it into my car, hooked it up, and have not had any problems sense. I love how you are able to angle it and the USB ports on the side. The screen looks good and the buttons work well. I love how there is a lightning adapter and Aux. 3.5mm cable in there, saves me the annoyance of going back and having to buy them if I wanted to do it with the Aux. cable. Overall a great purchase and would recommend if someone does not want to invest in changing out the radio in the car.

    FM Transmitter Bluetooth Adaptor

    If you want a basic streaming device, this is your ticket. The feedback noise is a bit more then it should be. Maybe if I hadn't returned I could have tried other channels. Either way this IS not an acceptable solution for phone calls while driving. The internal mic is garbage. We settled on the slightly more expensive Schoshe version. Also the display would be best to tilt for easier reading.

    I absolutely love this little device. It brings my 2009 Nissan up to speed and I can listen to Deezer, Spodify or any audio-books, etc. through my car speakers. The hands free talk for the phone causes static but that may be because I already have that installed on my car. I wasn't happy about the cost but after using it, it definitely was worth it!

    If you don’t want to spend the money to replace your radio this is a great option, easy set up, plug in and connect to Bluetooth, plays loud enough for me....has some background static but not enough to be an issue. Music and lyrics heard just fine, can be used with phone connected or not. I would buy again :) using for 2000 Nissan

    Works flawlessly!!! Little tip: Volume was super low and nothing would fix it. Changed the channel in the unit from the preset channel and the volume was blasting. iPhones connect and work perfectly. The hands free calling works perfectly also. Would def buy again!!!!!

    I was looking for a Bluetooth FM Transmitter to replace one that was broken. I’m glad that I found this one with the help of the Best Buy staff. It works fantastic with no feedback or static plus it has two USB ports on the side so you can charge your phone.

    My iPhone connects by Bluetooth for calls but no other audio. Listened to podcasts while in a long drive. Better volume than phone speaker alone but feedback disturbing. If I can’t determine another solution such as changing FM frequency for system, will return

    This item saved me hundreds of dollars!! Instead of having to replace a stereo in my wife’s mustang, which by the way requires a complete and specific type of stereo and wiring harness a total of almost $900!! This little thing did everything needed!!

    Rented a UHaul without a USB jack for 1700 mile move AM/FM radio was not going to cut it. This Roadtripper allowed us to listen to music and podcasts streamed from our phones via the speakers in the truck. It was a lifesaver.

    My car doesn't have an aux cord outlet, so this is how we bluetooth music through our radio. It works great and the reception is top notch. My teenage son DJs our tunes from the back seat with his phone. We give it 2 thumbs up!

    This product does not work. There was so much static coming through that I could not listen to any music. Plus you CANNOT have anything else plugged into other outlets. Do Not Waste Your Time, Money, or Effort.

      Hi! We have not encountered this specific issue before. Make sure the Bluetooth volume is turned all the way up on your phone before adjusting the volume in your car. A clear radio channel is also required to ensure sound quality. If neither of these solve the issue for you, you may have received a defective unit. Please contact tech@bracketron.com for warranty assistance. Thanks, Bracketron Support Bracketron

    I really like how this is Bluetooth from my device and then wireless too my radio. It does provide some background humming, but i have learned to live with it due to the convenience of complete wireless.

    I bought this to replace my aux cord and my adapter but the sound was terrible. It sounded almost hollow and I tried different stations and the same thing. Not the best sound.

    Tried this and the reception, no matter what station, was horrible. The volume was incredibly low and audio quality was just bad. I returned this and went with the Anker Roav - it has been excellent so far.

    I got this hoping it would work in my 2007 Mercedes 230, but alas the radio does not allow me to stay on a station with static, which is how this device is supposed to work. Big bummer.

    Works very well. Comes with everything you need to play music from your radio. Only down side is if you’re taking a long drive you’ll need to change the station on the transmitter fairly frequently.

    I bought this device to be able to connect via Bluetooth to an old car stereo with no AUX input jack. It works well, sound is clear, and is easy to use.
