    Hit or Miss

    I originally wasn't super pumped for the price but thought it would be worth it since it has a mic. Got it, was overly excited that I threw away the box because I didn't think I would need it only to discover the mic doesn't work. It's a hit or miss and only works when needed (more misses than hits really). Talked to a best buy associate hoping it was just the device and apparently that's just how it is. It's a great bluetooth adaptor (the only reason it's getting 2 stars) but the mic doesn't work properly and not worth the money I spent.

    Questionable functionality

    When I purchased this unit and tried it for the first time I was very dissatisfied. In order for it to work you had to tune the radio to an unused frequency. The unit had only four stations to select. Three were broadcasting in my area and the fourth was intermittent. I would guess it should elsewhere where the frequencies were not in use. It would be better if the unit allowed you to select any unused frequency.

    $59.99 for this, or $64 for Bluetooth stereo install from Best Buy. Bought this, and realized that installing the stereo I had was only $5 more. Why is this product so expensive? It felt kind of cheaply made, the original radio in the vehicle had static when tuned for this and listening to audio.

    Functionally, the unit works great. Flawless pairing every time. The unit needs more flexible station selection; in my case, the 4 stations they have are all in use in my area, resulting in background noise... That is the only reason I'm witholding my recommendation... Bummer...

    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.

    Too bully and not flexible to get out of way of stick shift. Also a little fuzzy on reception had to change channels at least twice a commute. Might be better suited for an area with less radio stations

    Not enough station options

    Okay for the price paid. Living in a metro area I wish it had several more frequency options as every frequency available has a local radio station, Had to compromise with some intermittency and choose weakest local station.

    I bought this product thinking the Bluetooth would be nice, but the sound quality just wasn't there. Your also limited to just 4 stations that are pre selected stations. Not impressed and returned this product

    Unit has 4 stations in my case all 4 had bleed over from other stations. Bought a different one for 1/3 the price and have all stations and 2 charger ports.

    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.

    If you’re staying in one city it works great. When driving between cities, which I do everyday the static is very frustrating and you can’t even listen to your music.

    It was good but not great. Was able to get a better one online for less money. This one is a little outdated.

    I had seen a similar item in use in an older vehicle but this one would not work in my area as all the FM stations available had strong local radio signals.

    This item was not useful in the area I live because there are radio stations on the preset stations, so there is a lot of interference with my reception.

    I was very interested to add hands-free for our truck. Decided not to use the unit. I didn't want to eliminate radio options or cause confusion while driving.

    The device works and is no worse than any other FM transmitter but all FM transmitters deliver subpar sound quality

    Overall this product may have worked well but we couldn't find a station to tune into that didn't have another real station stomping all over it.

    FM transmitters just don't seem to work very well. This one is no exception. No better than any other transmitter I've tried.

    This product doesn’t work..! It only has three set stations to choose from. They are all very weak.
