    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.

      Hi! I'm sorry if the transmitter is giving you a bit of trouble, remember that you can always take it to the Geek Squad at your local Best Buy store to have it checked out for the duration of the manufacturer warranty. Brian - Insignia Support BBY-ExBrand_Insignia

    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.

      Thank you very much for reviewing this transmitter, I am sorry to read that this is not working for you, since this transmitter works with signals over the air, weather conditions and distance from radio towers can affect the reception, however please remember that you can take advantage of Best Buy's 15 day return period.

    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.
