    Great if you have Apple products!

    I had recently bought a daily driver that does not have AUX or anything to listen to my music so after some research came across FM Transmitters which have a bad reputation but it's 2017 it has to be improved right? Well at first it didn't want to fit my cigarette lighter hole thing but once I jammed it, it felt snug and could be easily pulled out if wanted so. I only use through the USB input which connect to Apple devices only (if I'm correct) and it sounded great, many reviews complained about a hissing sound or static which I didn't come across until a couple days later. Realized that hissing only comes across when I turn A/C on or driving fast and the rpm's go up then hissing stops or lowers down to where it's not annoying. Also static comes along now and then but since I use this car mainly for work and stay for local drives I only need one station and it sounds good as for when I go out of town sometimes may need to switch to find a better station and that could possibly ruin quality. Many have complained about it breaking apart but mine has stayed in great shape I move it quite often as it tends to bend back in a straight shape and it bothers my reverse and park dongle thing on my car, don't see no problems so far. I don't have no experience on how the aux cable quality works with Androids as I don't use one. To sum it up, if you have an old car with no AUX capabilities and don't mind hearing static every now and use Apple iPhone (once again can't vouch for Andorid or Aux) then the quality on this is very good (looks cool in my opinion) and for the price can't complain, better than installing a pricier head unit on my car that looks ugly and flashy! +++++

    I settled on this FM transmitter after getting a new car (that doesn't have Bluetooth or an aux port, just a CD player). I ruled out all of the devices that used batteries. Thought about some rechargeable ones... but ended up ruling them out too. This Scosche works like a dock: you have to plug your phone into it, and the volume buttons on the phone don't work anymore, the stereo takes over. Phone charges when it's hooked up. It has worked perfectly for me, and I saved some money by doing an Amazon price-match inside my local Best Buy store. The only potential negative to consider... is it sticks out kinda far (see photo). And the flex-neck doesn't really hold in place very well, so it kinda settles back to a less bent position. It won't hold firm if you bend it in an extreme way. Works fine for my car, but I could see it being an issue, depending on how yours is laid out. Sound quality is totally fine with me. I was surprised with how much full-sounding bass came through. Two thumbs up!

    A good alternative to a new radio

    I had been debating with myself about either getting a new car radio or just getting an RF transmitter. The car I drive is a pre-iphone setup so essentially the deck has radio and a CD player. After going over the price I decided on doing the less expensive route and just getting an RF transmitter. Admittedly I was hesitant about it because I have had bad experiences with them before but this one is much better. For one, you don't need batteries for it, since it plugs into the power adapter. In addition to that, this model allows for the plugging in of the iphone from it's lightning adapter to the USB. The only issue I have about it, is more about my own cars design since the parking break is so close to the car's power adapter so I would need to crane the neck of the device so that I can access the USB underneath it. But as far as it's performance, it does its job splendidly with very clear transmission. Just make sure you find a clear frequency before you start driving.

    I've had to do a lot of driving, but my vehicle does not have blue tooth, MP5, or an Apple product interface. This transmitter has an easy to read display. It only takes at a quick glance to check the frequency channel. Once you know the location of the buttons, its easy to adjust the channels while driving without looking at the transmitter. On my old transmitter, I would loose the signal and have to adjust the channel several times while driving through Raleigh on I40. This transmitter holds one channel and transmits clearly during my whole drive. The drive is also much safer since I'm no longer frustrated trying to find and hold a signal for my music.

    After buying the item I didn’t think the sound quality or the use of it would be great. I was wrong on my judgement for this not only met my expectations but also blew it away for me. I’m now able to charge my phone while it automatically syncs to my phone to play my music. Very user-friendly and I have no trouble with it after using it for 4 month straight, it still hold up well. The item did come with a remote which is a nice feature but I rarely use it so it was sorta a waste in my opinion but good if you don’t want to touch your phone while driving.

    I sometimes have to drive 2 to 3 hours to see clients for work and like to listen to audio books, but my car doesn't have have Bluetooth or an auxiliary jack. This transmitter works great . I tried another brand that only had 4 channels available, but all 4 had radio stations on them so it didn't work for me. This one is digital, so I have all channels available which is great. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is because I have to turn the volume up really high to hear my phone which causes a background humming and can sometimes be annoying. This humming might just be inevitable with this kind of setup.

    This device is great and I have clear uninterrupted music again. Unlike most transmitters it has unlimited digital channels to choose from. As I travel and different channels become unavailable, I am still able to listen to my music because the range is not limited to 2 or 3 stations. I am very happy with the functionality of this device. The only drawback back is the display sometimes gets in the way. I don't think it needs to be smaller because I like that I can clearly view what stations it is on, but maybe the spring could truly be flexible that would make this item a 5 star item for sure!

    My car is a 2003 and is thus unfortunately in the "dark era" of car audio where it doesn't have a cassette player to use an AUX cord with, nor does it have an AUX input itself (only a CD player). I thought all hope of listening to my Spotify music in the car was lost entirely...until I learned about this! Overall, it's pretty perfect. There's some static in the background, but as long as your music volume is above that a whisper you shouldn't even notice it.

    Cheaper versions are BETTER

    DO NOT BUY..... This product is by far the worst I've had or will have. There a 5-7sec delay when using for phone calls. Sound transferancy is horrible. It cuts the sound in half thus having to turn your radio dial up twice as loud to hear anything. Turn by turn gps is descent & holds volume pretty well. I can hear the car idle & speed up through the frequency no matter what station I'm syncing. I eventually gave in & bought a different one (cheaper one from 5below) which works soo much better.

    No Bluetooth

    iPhone 7 user.I went to Bestbuy to pick this up. The site said they would have the Bluetooth one in stock. They had this one instead and I thought it was the better one. I was mad when I found out I had to plug the whole thing in, aux cord and all. If I knew that I would have just found another option. It's not a bad product but.... it's not wireless and you have to plug everything in. Only clear audio if you also have the aux cord in. If you're just pluggin USB and using the FM station.... tons of static.

    This is supposed to let you play songs in your car via wifi without being connected, but that did not work, maybe that is only for iPhones and I have Android. However, it works plugging the player into my phone. It works very well in fact. It had very clear sound with no static. Previous player I had, you could hear static in the background and it would sometimes go in and out, but this one does not. Very good to play songs in your car from your phone and also doubles as a car charger.

    Works Great When It Decides to Work

    This is a great concept and works well WHEN it is working. The device worked great for about 2 weeks and stopped working entirely. I will be returning it. I have one in another vehicle which works intermittently. If I giggle it around enough it will transmit. This one has not worked at all for about a week. The one in the other car is a replacement because the first one I purchased also broke after 2 weeks. I think it is a great concept with serious quality control issues.

    I know most of the time FM transmitters don't work very well (at least my opinion and past experiences) so I was hesitant to purchase one for the price it was listed for. I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did! To my surprise it has worked excellent since day one and comes out very clear in my car while listening to music! Haven't had a problem with static or the "white noise" sound that is usually heard while using these things. Also happy that my iPhone will charge while plugged in with the USB! Love this transmitter!

    Multi-Purpose/Easy to Use

    I basically walked into Best Buy near my home looking for anything to play the music on my phone over the radio in my Durango, which doesn't have a 1/8" jack. This unit by Scosche fulfilled my needs and a lot more. Easy to use, and especially with >>| and |<< controls right on the unit is perfect so I don't have to fumble with my phone while driving. My only complaint is that the volume when using the 1/8" jack is much lower than when using the Bluetooth connection, for some reason. Good product, really worth the $$.

    I bought this for my work truck which has no aux or cd. Does what it's supposed to and plays music from my phone perfect. I couldn't get the controls on it (pause, skip track, etc) to work, but maybe it's just not compatible with Amazon music. They might work with the factory music player on your phone. The only drawback is there is a bit of interference that comes through over the radio, but you're going to get that with any unit of this type. Overall, I was satisfied.

    Glad this one can read music through the USB port, so no real need for an auxiliary chord with a phone. This also means it charges while playing music! I had one before that came with a chord already connected and was for my iphone4, so when it broke I couldn't continue to charge my phone by replacing the charger chord - this one makes it possible. I do wish that I could push fwd/bck on the device itself! For not having the most up to date console in my car, this has been working just fine.

    Exceeds expectations - excellent product

    Posted
    Customer

    We researched various fm transmitters to use for a cross country drive in a vehicle with a good sound system but with no blue tooth or auxiliary connection. Most of the articles we read suggested that we should have low expectations about sound quality and reception. After buying this product we found the opposite to be true. The sound is great - no different from the radio or CD player. This product does what it is supposed to do.

    I had a much older similar product that finally just stopped working. It was bulky and had a lot of cables. It always had static and would pick up a lot of interference. I replaced it with the freqOUT Pro - the difference is night and day! SO much clearer. Only one cable from phone to transmitter (and it charges at the same time). There is a blue tooth version available as well. The signal is strong and loud! I am more than pleased with this upgrade!

    I bought this one mainly because it was compact in size and one of the higher end ones to choose from plus it was on sale at $14 off regular price. I tried it out in two different vehicles. It works flawlessly in the company truck (where it will be used the most), but in the car I can get a little static noise. That's an easy fix though by repositioning the iPod. I would recommend this one for it's ease of setup, price and sound quality.

    The product was very easy to use right out of the box. I use it with my iPhone to listen to music in my vehicle that does not have an aux system for being able to listen to your music through you're car speakers. And being able to plug my phone in and have it charge at the same time allows me to recharge my phone while listening to my music without running my battery down on my phone.
