    Lots of static. Cords in the way. I went with a blue tooth version.

    Works great-when you can get reception

    I'm sure this product probably works better in larger areas. However, if you live in a smaller area, it's harder to keep and maintain good reception. Static is an issue frequently.

    This product is not very good. The frequencies which you have to use are too close together. Couldn't get a clear signal to the radio.

    Absolute Garbage

    I tried two of these and both were garbage. FM transmitter signal could not bring the FM radio to full quieting even from 2 inches away. So much white noise. Do not waste your money!

    There are several options to broadcast your music to your FM radio, and this isn't one of them. The signal was weak and full of static. As if it were off frequency. Luckily we hadn't left the parking lot and were able to return it for a unit with digital tuning.

    Only 4 channels to choose from,The sound quality was terrible. The static was unbearable,Anyone would be better off listening to the radio compared to this thing. Save your money and look elsewhere,This thing isn't worth 60 bucks. Wouldn't even be worth a penny...

    This is the worst $60 I have ever spent. The sound quality is terrible. You get nothing but static interference. Stay away from this product it is worthless.

    Limited channel selection

    It connected via Bluetooth without a problem. The limited channel selection may be its biggest flaw. I couldn't get an open channel and constantly had static while playing. Tried in my wife's Pontiac and my Cadillac with the same issues.

    It worked OK with static in rural areas. In metro areas where there are large concentrations of FM radio stations it couldn't find an unused station to broadcast through. Nothing but static. Replace your stereo with a bluetooth compatible model instead. I returned it and wouldn't recommend one of these to a friend.

    This product is pure garbage. First off you can only select from 4 stations 106.7,106.9,107.1,107.3 so like most city's there is a station broadcasting on most of them. I can get it to come in on 1 of the stations but it is almost pure static. For $60 I would expect much more. I have purchased product back in the 90s from radioshack to broadcast through FM that were a million times clearer than this piece of garbage. It will be getting returned

    Same old issues with an over-air FM transmitter.

    Bought a used car that didn't have any Bluetooth capabilities. I was really hoping that this would do the trick, but was sorely disappointed. It was full of static, and I literally couldn't take it anymore. I did buy another 3x more expensive iSimple product (inline FM transmitter, installs behind radio) and it works beautifully. My point... it's not the brand... it's the solution. Suck it up and go the next step up, or I'd bet you'll be returning this and doing it in a few weeks anyway.

    Very easy to set up. . only issue is there are only 4 stations you can use and they are used where I live. Causes some static but not a horrible amount. The only reason I did not give it more stars was that. For the amount I paid could be better.

    This transmitter did not work for us. It only has 4 options of stations to broadcast to. In our area, 2 of the options already have local channels. The receiver is on a cord that is supposed to mount on top of your dash. The cord was too short to reach, putting it in a poor position. The 2 remaining available channels had poor reception which made the music constantly fallout. I did not like the performance or the physical unit. I had bought 2 units and returned both since they did not work well in either vehicle I tried.

    Got it and tested in the parking lot. Doesn't work at all. I had only 4 options for the channel selection and only 1 "kind of" worked. Full of static and had to turn my volume to 56 just to hear anything. For around $70 this is a complete failure of a concept. You are paying for its small compact form NOT functionality. Found a better product with more features for $30 at another store. If Best Buy had carried it I would have bought it there. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
