    Trying to zero in on a constant channel without interference is tough at times but it does try and when it works it works well.

    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.

    Perhaps I have bad unit but the instructions provided to preset the channels to tune the radio don't work. I let it auto-tune and it worked OK but I had to max out the volume on my phone and have the car stereo at 90% to get reasonable sound. Because the gain was so high you get a lot of background noise/hum. Would not buy again.

    The only problem I have had is you must hold the actually receiver part in your hand or else there is static, no matter what station you are set to.

    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.

    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.
