After spending hours reading reviews and comments on fm transmitters i decided to order this one.It is fantastic i was really surprised with the sound quality, i had the dension fm car kit but it broke! and when it did work it wasnt as nearly as good as this one, and this is a third of the price.to get the best sound i found that switching your ipod equalizer to treble reduce has the best effect in getting rid of the hissing between songs. like another reviewer on here i was torn between the kensington and griffin auto but im pleased to say i made a good choice reccommend to anyone.

At last, an FM Transmitter worth buying! Great sounding in-car FM radio transmitter and iPod charger with easy to read backlit screen and simple controls. Better overall audio quality than all of the FM transmitters I've tried.

This Kensington product is excellent! The sound quality is very good with minimal interference. Compared to the iTrip product the FM signal is much stronger and the quality far superior. It is also infinitely better than the "tape casette" interface option. I was very disappointed with the iTrip and came to believe taht all FM transimitter devices would be similarly poor but the Kensington is a revelation - I have pretty much given up using the CD system in the car now.

If you are looking for an iPod wireless interface for your vehicle then look no further. Buy one of these and you will not be disappointed.

I was initially in two minds between this and the Griffin Auto, but I wasn't impressed with the sound quality when I borrowed the griffin transmitter from a fiend, so I settled for Kensington transmitter.

Let me tell you something about this gadget, its simply Brilliant !!! From the day I got it, I haven't changed the frequency. The sound quality is similar to a CD player. I also love the fact that you can save frequencies on it, in case you need to change it.

Well done Kensington for such a good transmitter.

I have been using the griffin itrip for 6 months but was getting increasingly frustrated by its susceptibility to interference (when near power lines, on sunny days when no cloud cover) so invested in the Kensington model. It is a world apart from the itrip; very strong signal so that interference is non existent and, unexpectedly, a much better quality of sound. Of course it also charges the ipod as well and unlike the griffin roadtrip is not bulky. I'm very pleased.
Only minor quibble is that the lead that connects the ipod to the transmitter is, for me, a little too long resulting in too much coiled 'spaghetti'. A great bit of kit

This arrived this morning, and within minutes I was listening to my tracks on the car radio.

Plug one end to a lighter socket (with power to it) for it to work, the other end in to the base of your ipod. Find an FM frequency on your car radio not already being used (must be an odd number e.g. 89.1 or 89.3 etc). Then press the left button on the transmitter up or down to match the same as your radio, it can even be done in the dark as the transmitter display is lit. Press play on your ipod, and your music should be heard. you may need to alter the EQ setting on IPOD to avoid hiss or distortion. The quality of music from Linkin park with heavy bass to vocal and treble tracks can be heard in good quality too. You can also play your podcasts or even the sound from your videos comes through too but not as loud as mp3's.

My car is an estate with the aerial on the roof at the back; about as far away from the transmitter as you can get, but this causes no problems.

You can save 3 frequencies in the transmitter, and it charges your ipod too. If no sound is being played the transmitter shuts off.

It's the cheapest price I've found £34.62, Tesco have it for £40. There's another version which transmits on RDS the track being played so you can see it on the radio, but the frequencies i think may be preset to a choice of 3 so you can't pick them yourself but i could be wrong.

Turned up a couple of days after ordering.

Very simple to set up. My car stereo, despite having that irritating FM scan feature which can't be over-ridden, picked up the iPod transmitter even without a tune playing at the time.

The transmitter itself is built in to the plug but unlike some accessories isn't a big bulky box wedged it to your cigarette lighter. It's barely bigger than a normal cigarette lighter plug.

The ONLY thing I've found so far which detracts from a 5-star rating is that due to the angle of the dash on my car and the location of the cigarette lighter, the LCD of the transmitter isn't very clear. Due to reflections and the way the light falls on it, it appears as "88.88". To read the LCD you need to be looking directly at it.

I initially purchased a Belkin TuneFM, however i returned this soon afterwards as the signal was simply not powerful enough and it had a great deal of interference. I replaced it with this Kensington DigitalFm Transmitter and could not be happier with the difference. Great sound quality and I only rarely have to change the frequency even when driving in London. My only issue has been that in some cars it may be difficult to see the lcd display due to the angle of the cigarette lighter socket.

All in all, a great product.
