5.0 out of 5 stars Not a brand name, but there's nothing to worry about.. works perfectly!!, 23 Sept. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Premium Apple FM Transmitter For Apple iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G S and Itouch (1st, 2nd & 3rd Gen), Nano's & Classic's (All ipod's) WITH 12 MONTHS WARRANTY Now with remote control (Electronics)
I bought this on a bit of a whim, as I've been using a Belkin tuner for the last few months. The Belkin unit worked pretty well, but had this annoying habit of making high pitched screeches every 10-15 seconds - you could generally tune it out of your head when listening to music, but any kind of spoken word (podcasts or audiobooks) would sound horrible after a while.

This device on the hand has no such problems. I was suitably sceptical before ordering - it's pretty cheap, comes bundled with a bunch of other items, and I've never heard of the brand. However, if you have any concerns, I'd forget about them - this things works perfectly. It draws power from your device, so no cables dragging around the car (a constant irritation with the Belkin system), and just sits there quietly doing it's thing. I've got it plugged into an iPod nano, and it doesn't add much to the overall profile of the device. Battery drain isn't too bad, and I've had running perfectly for the last few days without having to retune or having to endure the "Belkin screeches"!

I've tested the remote control, and I do indeed have the ability to use all the iPod functions through it. This is of course of very limited use in a car, but if you're using this unit to throw sound from your iPod/iPhone to a home receiver, then I can see it's potential.

I've not yet had a chance to try the USB car charger and cable; even if it doesn't work (which I doubt to be the case), this is already a pretty compelling package, and I whole heartedly recommend it!

Really, don't bother with Belkin devices, just get this one!!
