It works - Just About,
This review is from: ATMT iZone FM101 Wireless FM Transmitter with Built-in USB Hub Charger for iPod or any MP3/MP4 Player (Accessory)
Having followed the advice of the previous reviewer, I promptly fitted this device with the requisite AAA batteries, and thought to enjoy my ipod shuffle on my radio.
At first, it seemed fine. I set the frequency to 101.1 fm, my radio found it automatically, and the music quality seemed fine, if a little distorted. However, once I began to drive for more than 2 minutes, the signal seemed to become intermitant at best, constantly dropping out and becoming unbearable.
Because there is no means of attaching the device to any place in the car, you then start to move it around in the desperate, but futile hope, that the signal will improve. This is dangerous practice of course. As is fumbling about tryng to change the track, I would recommend an mp3 player which has the capacity for 'playlists'.
So, on finishing my journey, I experimented with a variety of frequencies, and guess what, no improvement. So frustrated was I, that I have reverted to C.Ds. That is certainly the way forward, burn itunes to a compact disc, rather than wasting time and money on this.
Like I said in the title, it does work, but I almost rather it didn't. The frustration of listening to a tune distorted with static to such a ridiculous degree will have you on the verge of tossing it out of the window, and reversing over it.

This was a genuine review about a bad product, which has now ceased to funtion. Would you like me to give it 5 stars, and encourage others to buy it?
