    Works but could be better

    Although these are going by the wayside as technology advances this is a pretty fair transmitter. Works well out of big towns and cities where there arent a lot of radio stations broadcasting and there is more of them with dead air. Good buy for the price

    This is by no means a perfect device, but for the price you will get pretty good consistent usage. The closer I get to a major city, in my case Chicago, the fewer available stations to tune into, but overall I am very pleased.

    I hate that it's staticy most the time. I spend too much time holding my phone which helps the static but annoying when driving. . With the setup I have in my car, I'm grateful to have this but $30 is a bit ridiculous.

    Radio strength is weak

    Even on stations with no nearby stations, the radio strength is very weak. Sound quality is not very good. It served it's basic purpose, but is also overly complicated to program in addition to weak strength leading to poor quality sound.

    When I purchased this item they didn't have a huge selection so I bought it out of necessity. When we started using it there is usually quite a bit of static even when you try different channels so it's just ok. But I will replace it soon.

    Not the best product. We had to do a lot of work to find a station that comes in clear. Not sure if its my radio or the product. But my radio has worked with other products. Overall it works okay, still get some static. Its an okay product.

    It scans and finds a suitable station quickly. It sounds great as long as the station does not come in well. As soon as you get near a location that the chosen station starts to come in, you just scan for a new station. Easy.

    Purchased to use with an old CD player for a car that we recently bought. It did not have a CD player in it. Was informed by sales person that we could make it work by buying the FM transmitter. Worked like a charm.

    Bought for my 2001 Chevy Tahoe that doesn't have Bluetooth nor Aux input. It's pretty easy to setup and works pretty well. It does have some radio "fuzz" associated with it, but people on the phone don't hear it.

    Not only did this product only work the first time I used it and then quit, but when I tried to exchange it, they wouldn't let me because I am not able to come to an actual Best Buy store. I'm very disappointed in Best Buy now.

    Yes, I know I can rip my CDs to iTunes but sometimes you just want to pop a CD in. I bought a cheap player at B.B. and hooked up this FM transmitter. It works best away from metro areas.

    I’m very disappointed because the phone or iPod aren’t be charging while in use on this device. Plus the stations don’t really connect properly.

    Pros: It is easy to use and has an average sound quality. Cons: About %20 to %30 of the time I had a disconnection or lots of annoying noise sound related to the around waves interference.

    If you were in a major city area it worked fairly well. But noticed a fair bit of interference when got outside the metro area and in more rural areas it was pretty sketchy. Only used for one trip so may just need adjusting.

    If you are considering this product, its probably because your radio doesn't have an aux outlet. It work as good as you would expect it to over the radio.

    My 2007 Audi A4 did not have s simple plug to connect my iPhone to listen to my music so this device helped integrate my components. I also bought a single sub woofer and amp to really improve my sound quality.

    It would send out a signal, and my radio would pick it up. It would get really spotty if I didn't have it in a specific spot in my car. It also would do a weird thing where if I had y AC on, it would produce a lot of static.

    I bought this transmitter to run my music apps for my 03 Tahoe. Once you lock in an open FM channel. I was pleased with the sound with no feedback sounds. Used it for phone conversations too with no static sounds.

    For cars that you cannot plug your phone into to play your playlist, this device is great! I have an old car and used this on a recent trip out of state. We were able to listen to the music on our iPhones or computers.
