5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 17 Feb 2011
Style Name:AUX - Universal
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works better than the rest 13 Sep 2010
Style Name:iPhone 4 and 4s
Only having an iPhone, I had the misfortune to try a few other iPod FM transmitters. Be wary if you are looking for an FM transmitter that works with an iPhone, interference will cause problems. NOT with this product from Belkin, it is designed to work flawlessly with the iPhone. As soon as I got it, I went for a drive past some cell towers where I knew I would pick up some cell chatter, the reception was clean!

I recommend getting this product if you need / want an FM transmitter and don't go down the expensive route of trying out others. This one works out of the box and the quality of the audio is more than acceptable.

Style Name:AUX - Universal|Verified Purchase
Whilst an increasing number of cars are now featuring car audio systems that include one form of iPod or mp3 connectivity or another, neither of our cars currently have this. My wife has an iPhone 4 and she has the next model up in the Belkin range which has a dedicated Apple connector. This allows the phone to charge (via the cigarette socket) and also allows the phone to download radio information about the area you are in to aid finding unused airspace and also allows the phone to control some aspects of the radio. The Belkin works really well. In fact, it works so well, I decided to buy something similar for my car. I have my music on an iPad Nano, so don't have the ability to download or connect in the same way as an iPhone. When I checked out the range, I decided on this model. It doesn't have the Apple connector and so doesn't charge out of the box and connects to the iPod via the headphone socket. It is still powered and needs to plug into the cig lighter socket. The benefit here is that this connector has a USB slot built in, so if I am on an extended journey, I can use my ordinary iPod Apple charger cable with it. However, the iPod lasts for days and so is hasn't presented a problem. At the end of the day, this model still does the same job of getting the music from the music player out over the radio. It does it equally well. In essence, it finds an empty bit of the airwaves and transmits the music from your music player on this frequency. You simply tune the car radio to the same frequency and there you have it. Both have a number of settings that may make a difference in some circumstances. You can set it to mono, or you can boost the Bass etc. In summary, both these models work really well and I would recommend them both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly as it says, 9 July 2010
By Sean
Style Name:iPhone 4 and 4s
I have used the FM transmitter for the first time today with my Iphone4. It works perfectly, much better than my friends one which I used before.

The clear scan and app are easy to use and quick. The sound quality is incredible, there is no static and it picks a frequency which does not get interupted 10 miles down the road as the GPS assist selects a frequency which is not used near by.

The sound quality realy is great, there is no difference compared to listening to a CD!

I can definatly recomend, and it charges the phone ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best FM transmitter on the market 20 Sep 2011
By Bub
Style Name:iPhone 4 and 4s
This was the last shot at using an FM transmitter with my Iphone 4.Wow, it actually works. Perfect sound quality with No hiss or cracks, absolutely brilliant. If you are looking to buy one, forget anything else, despite other reviews, this I think is the best one ever.

Style Name:AUX - Universal|Verified Purchase
For those of us who don't own a modern car with a USB or bluetooth connection, this is a great and relatively cheap way (around £25) of getting your entire record collection on the move.

I used to have one of the Belkin ClearSound cradles - which was brilliant up to a point and in fact probably the best piece of kit on the market at that price (approx £60) in terms of sound quality. But after owning three of them, I discovered that they weren't robust enough and, after a year or so, the cigarette socket adapter simply disintegrated into an explosion of nuts, fuse and springs.

This, however, is a perfectly good replacement. I've had it now for two years and there's no sign of it going the way of its big brother. It works on exactly the same premise as the Cradle - plug the adapter into the cigarette lighter and the mini jack into your iPod or phone (or other device). Press the search button on the main unit and the transmitter will find a free FM frequency. Now tune your car radio to that frequency, press play on your device and away you go.

Unlike some similar products, which lose the selected signal, this seems to lock it in which means that you don't have to endure the endless searching for an available new frequency halfway through a great song. It does occasionally lose the signal - most often when a resident radio station's signal overpowers it. But, 99% of the time, you'll be able to stay on the same frequency permanently.

So if it's so good, why four stars rather than five? Well that's because it doesn't have the same ClearSound technology behind it, which means it is prone to very occasional interference, static and hiss. Nothing so frequent or intrusive to really spoil your listening enjoyment - and the price reflects its shortcomings - but enough to stop it getting the full five star monty.
