Style Name: Universal AUX Connection
I bought this to replace my old Tunecast II & it works & sounds so much better. I'm really pleased with this.
I have found that it easily finds spare spaces on the radio when I need to use the function, which isn't very often & I mostly leave it tuned at about 107.6
It has a channel ident that nicely displays "Tunecast" on your radio so if you do have to re-tune you can easily find what you are looking for.
I also like the function that allows you to switch between mono & 3 audio levels & find that it provides plenty of volume from the MP3 to the radio. I'm a Metalhead & live life loud so anything quiet just won't do. It also has 2 preset buttons to set your most used frequencies & switches off automatically after 2 Min's when no signal is coming from your MP3 player. It also has a handy USB socket on the plug to re-charge your player.

Yay! It works for the 5S just as well as the old model did for the 4S, Actually its more reliable than that version. No faffing about with the headphone socket this charges and does audio straight from the lightning socket. Only downside is you don't get a cradle. However a universal phone cradle for about £6:50 does the job well (avoid 5s specific models they assume you don't have a phone case). This also worked a treat with my ipad mini which was good for a long journey north with passenger.

Bought this to replace a previous similar Belkin product which broke after many years of faithful service.
I had a few false starts trying other, cheaper Belkin products that claimed to do the same job but didn't work properly.

This product is a little bit of technological magic. Plug your iPhone of iPad in through the headphones socket and it broadcasts the audio output on a weak fm signal. Your car radio picks it up. Works amazingly well in a car with a radio and no aux input. You just have to find an empty fm frequency. On longer trips, you may have change signals to avoid local radio stations but this is easy to do. This model looks like an upgrade as it looks more robust and displays the frequency more frequently.

Just a few comments on other reviews:
- I did find the volume low at first. I solved this by turning up the volume on my iPod. To do this, I had to change the max volume limit. I googled this and found instructions online.
- it doesn't wobble loose in our car cigarette lighter at all. We have an old Nissan Micra.
- as supplied it does run down the iPod battery. Add a usb charge cable to solve this. The part that plugs into the cigarette lighter has a usb slot for this.

Style Name: Universal AUX Connection Verified Purchase
I used this transmitter a few times going from Cork to Dublin (around 250km journey) and back. I set the transmitter up and began playing music from my mp3 player. The quality was not great but was acceptable, it was like listening to a cassette playing with some hiss in the background. (This can be improved by pressing the "Pro" button which adjusts the audio and volume). However the biggest issue I had with it was the fact that the cigarette lighter plug kept falling out of the cigarette lighter socket. As a result, the transmitter kept turning off and you would be startled by the loud hiss coming the car radio. For every journey, I used it, the longest that the device stayed on, was for a 5 minute period. For the rest of the time, it would turn itself off 2-3 times per song.

Pros:
1. Works at frequencies between 87.5 - 107.6. The frequencies 87.6 and 107.6 are good ones as there is usually very little on them therefore have to re-tune less.
2. You can save two frequencies that work best for you as presets on the device.
3. There is a usb connection which you can use to charge your mp3 player.

Cons:
1. Cigarette lighter plug kept falling out of the socket and as a result turning the transmitter off kept happening 2-3 times per song). Very annoying having to push it back in almost constantly on the journey.
2. Due to having to turn the radio volume up quite a bit to hear the music, when it turns itself off (which it does a lot!), the noise from radio can startle you which is not a good thing when driving.

My first thoughts on this when I saw it was £21!! Really?!? But after reading other reviews I decided to just go for it.

Was it worth it? Yes, this is by far the best "itrip" I've ever used, it feels well built and looks fantastic.
It came with a instruction book, which is not really required, simply plug in adjust the settings, tune in the radio and that's it.

The important bits:

Does it sound any good?
Yes, the sound quality is pretty good. Now, I'm very picky with my audio due to my involvement with Sound Engineering, and the sound quality of this it very good. It is obviously not up to the standards of a direct line in, but I would say it was just below the audio quality of the Bluetooth system in my Dad's Grand Scenic. Which is great, considering the fact it is an "itrip"

What is it like charging:
So far, it seems okay. It charges my iPhone 5S well, but I haven't tested any other devices (iPads etc.)

Does it have a USB port?
No, this model doesn't. I've included this since I was wondering while buying and there didn't seem to be an answer.

How long is the cable?
Cable from cigarette plug to "itrip" section is 50cm (or 20" in old English)
From "itrip" to lightning connector is also 50cm (or 20")
Total length not including "itrip" section is 1m (40")
Total length including "itrip" section is 105cm (43") approx.
In real life terms, this gets from the cigarette socket, up behind the wheel and up to by the right hand windscreen pillar. (Chevrolet, Lacetti)

Any bad points?
Maybe the lack of USB port for charging another device is an oversight, would be nice to have but not a huge loss.

Do I recommend?
Yes, if you're looking for a good "itrip" for a lightning device, buy this.
