    It's good, not great

    positives: - it has many ports. While using it to transmit my music via bluetooth to my car, I also used this device to charge my GPS and my iPhone without any problems. - setting/changing the radio frequency is quite easy - setting my iPhone to connect to this bluetooth device was very easy too. - I never had any problems with pairing my iPhone (7) to this device - I paired it once, and it stayed paired every since. negatives: - sometimes the signal it transmits is really bad. So bad that the frequency I set on this device doesn't always get picked up by the car's radio. Other times it transmits a very bad signal, even though no radio stations seems to use that frequency in a given area. Yet, other times it works just well. Would I recommend this to a friend? yeah - maybe. Not sure.

    Awesome fm transmitter

    I bought this product as it was on special at my local best buy. I was a little skeptical as I had previously bought an fm transmitter. The signal would get lost and there was a lot of interference. I decided to try this one as I knew I could return it incase it didnt work out. Well let me say this product is awesome. There is no lost signal, no static, and the sound comes in crisp and clear. The transmitter has additional usb ports and an additional lighter charger. Plus it has a microphone which enables you to make/receive calls. This is truly the best for people who dont want to upgrade to a full blown bluetooth stereo.

    I own a 2003 Chevy Blazer. My radio didn't come with a cassette deck and would use an FM transmitter to listen to my ipod but the sound quality was at best, decent and would always have static or interference. This bluetooth FM transmitter works amazing. There's never been any interference from whatever station it's been set to and the sound of whatever it is you're listening to comes through while it sits perfectly in a cup holder. If you're looking for a way to listen to your music without splurging on a brand new radio, this is the perfect thing.

    This bluetooth FM transmitter & car charger works as promised. I bought it when going on a road trip in a car that did not have bluetooth connectivity. Initial set up and pairing with my phone was fast and reconnecting after stops happened seamlessly. I also liked that it has buttons to skip or rewind tracks, pause and resume, and volume control. Sound and call quality is also very good. It also has up to 4 chargers that you can use for additional devices.

    Right out of the box it powered up on channel 87.5 and would not change so it was useless as my radio only goes as low as 87.7 I did everything the limited instructions said and nothing. Plus there's no troubleshooting section to refer to for help. I'm sure Best Buy would've taken it back with no problem had I made the effort, but it was more satisfying for me to just toss it out the window at 75mph.

    Other than having one heck of a time setting it up to the right radio station, this works pretty well. I would recommend it for people who don’t have Bluetooth in their car and want to listen to music. The phone call volume is not loud at all, wouldn’t buy it if that’s what you are looking for. It does have 4 methods of charging which is pretty nice.

    I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my daughter so she could stream her own music from her phone while driving. But mostly I bought it for my piece of mind so that she won't try talking or texting while driving. I did receive a call from her while she used this and I couldn't tell she was using it. It sounded like a normal call.

    The car and driver Bluetooth FM transmitter and car charger is by far one of the best purchases I've made at best buy. It's convenient location in the cup holder keeps it out of the way yet close by. Makes hands free usage of streaming music from my phone and answering calls easy and safe. It is easily the best all around tech for any car.

    Very easy to set up. I have an older car with no Bluetooth. Connecting my cell phone to this devise by Bluetooth took 1 minute. Then just tune the car FM radio to the same channel, and I can play music from cell phone in car radio. A cheap, easy way to update radio in an older car.

    Bluetooth Cupholder

    This is a very useful product if you can spare a cup holder space. I like the multiplying effect of an additional power point, two USB plugs, in addition to the ability to bluetooth to FM radio speakers. It would be nice if it could pair with both my phones. Still, the value is excellent.

    Used in an older car that doesn't have the bluetooth syncing that newer cars have. Set it to an unused FM frequency and it transmits the callers voice to the radio where you can control volume. Sound quality is good and the other end hears me well. Works as advertised.

    I’m glad that I found this car cup holder charger at BestBuy online store. I had ordered with delivery and they delivered it before the commitment date. The charger has four USB ports for phone charging. And a blue tooth radio transmitter. Everything works as advertised.

    I bought this for my husband who has a 2008 honda accord. He needs bluetooth in his car for phone calls and music. Unfortunately, I can't even get it to set up. The directions are super limited and vague. No phone number to call for help. No videos on youtube to reference. Must return.

    Took a few minutes to figure out, but it wasn't hard to figure out to hold the button for a few seconds to change the station from 87.5 to 87.7. Crystal clear sound, and I love that we can stream from our phone. I also love that we can charge so many other devices. Sweet deal.

    Must have for anyone with an older car that doesn't come bluetooth enabled. This works flawlessly! Easy to setup, connects with my phone very quickly as soon as I turn on my car and the sound quality is super. Phone calls and directions are clear.

    This does exactly what it tells you that it does. I bought it today and was able to get it programmed in and playing music within 5-10min from my cup holder. Directions and music through my car stereo via Bluetooth since phones no longer have earphone jacks. Very helpful

    I got this to replace an different Bluetooth adapter for my boyfriend that broke. It fits nicely in the cup holder and charges our phones really fast. The sound quality is good and in terms of adapters I find this is the best one I've seen thus far.

    I bought this for my daughter's old Chevy Malibu, since she wanted a way to connect her iPhone to her car speakers. The car doesn't have an aux port. Unlike other audio-streaming devices I've looked at, this unit also has built-in chargers and fits nicely in her car's cupholder.
