    not worth the money

    I needed an alternative to cassette adapter for an iPod. We were told this would work. I expected a comparable price to the cassette adapter. If I didn't have rewards gift certificates, I wouldn't have bought it. It is hard to adjust which stations are available and static interrupts often.

    It was the cheapest I could find. Makes my music great but I'm always looking for new stations because of the static. After 1 year they ended up breaking and wouldn't play my music.

    Alot of static. I bought this as a gift for my child and it drives me crazy because when he's trying to play his music from his iPhone it's a lot of static. Could be that I have an older (2006) car but then again isn't this supposed to work thru the cigarette lighter? Not worth the $$$

    Having an older vehicle (2004) makes listening to my audiobooks on the road difficult. This FM transmitter works to solve that problem. My only problem is that I live in a densely populated radio frequency area, so finding the "static" channels without interference can be difficult.

    Fantastic Radio Transmitter

    I have a hard time finding a transmitter that doesn't clip and constantly put out static, but this product does the job, there is some static about 3% of the time, but previously it was around 20% but this is impossible to completely get rid of due to cellphone frequencies.

    The product was fine, however, I was very confused on how it was going to work with my iPod when It did not fit the jack of my iPod, I did tell BOTH sales reps and manager in the store that is what I wanted for. Other than that, product worked great with my phone

    Works good in most locations. Areas around city's that have an abundance of fm radio stations it's difficult to get static free audio out of it. But if no other option available other than replacing your stock audio system then it's worth it .

    A good choice for everyday use

    This computer is exactly what I needed for everyday use. It can handle multitasking well without significant lag time, and the display crisp & easy to view. Definitely a good choice for someone who needs a computer that can handle multiple programs/windows at once.

    This transmitter gets major interference from cellphone boosters and police/ fire stations. Sometimes it will cut out randomly on backroads in the mountains. It doesn’t put out enough power to reach the rear antenna in our car.

    Good if you're like me and have an older car that won't sync with a phone. My old one would scan for available settings, this one uses presets. Would only recommend if you're in my situation and would rather listen to your library instead of local radio.

    Poor Quality for High Price

    Really disappointed with the quality. The small transmitter will cut in and out or get static noise if not in just the right placement. I purchased a much cheaper Bluetooth FM transmitter for my husband and it works better than the wired one I purchased.

    My dad has an old car with original stock radio, this item makes it easy to enjoy your music in your car when all you listen to is Pandora, Tune-in Radio, Iheart Radio and other apps on your phone/tablet. We gave it to him for Christmas and he loves it!

    For the price it’s not the best. It’ll get you listening to your iMusic and what not but your bass won’t sound the same and sometimes you’ll get static. Sure does beat a lot of local stations and advertising though!

    Not enough stations to receive adequate reception.

    The radio station reception is very poor, also when the volume is turned up, there are loud bursts of static interference constantly being transmitted through the radio which makes it very difficult to hear and enjoy any music or audio recordings.

    This fm transmitter does do what it promises but not at the best level of quality. Using it with my Galaxy S7 Edge the reception is okay but not great with occasional interference and low volume levels, also would appreciate bluetooth connectivity.

    Works well at providing audio thru car's FM. Does not charge so a separate charging connection is needed. The charging cable can interfere with the audio. This transaction was an exchange of the same product which had failed after less than two months of use.

    Once connected, the reception is very bad, I am not able to hear audio from my phone, unless I hold universal FM transmitter in my hand continuously. If your hand is not touching to device, reception is very bad.

    The transmitter worked without any problem, easy to hook up. The sound through the speakers in my car wasn't what I was expecting. The previous transmitter that I had sounded much better but it crashed after a few months so, who knows?

    Yes, this item seems to be overpriced considering that it isn't wireless. It selects basic radio stations that may or may not produce quality sound or transmissions. I will promote that if it does find an acceptable station that the quality is Great.
