This device is very adaptable to your needs, with the USB or SD-card connections, the skip track and other controls on the device control your MP3 player or the content on the SD card, at arms length (assuming your car's power connection is). There is also an option to plug in any audio device through the 3.5mm input.
The preferable option is to load music onto an SD-card, as will not require charging like an MP3 player, and can be left in the device 24/7. I have tried a 4GB card, which works fine, though I don't know the maximum size it can read/accommodate.
Also, unlike many of the other reviews, the broadcast signal seems to be the strongest out of the in-car FM transmitters that I've tried, with the volume equal to that of most FM radio stations. I have no idea why some can't even pick up a signal from this. Maybe their cars are lined with lead? Whatever the case this worked fine with a bog-standard car radio, and I suspect that anyone's who doesn't might have an issue with their antenna/car radio.
Now to sound quality: it's good enough. It definitely isn't CD-quality, but it is similar to most FM stations.
But most of all, it is amazing value for money, considering the adaptability and capability of it.
A brilliant tech-workaround for those whose car stereos can't connect to MP3 players or other audio devices! Which, lets face it, is most of us.
It worked perfectly. You plug it into your ciggy lighter, tune your radio to 87.5, and it plays the tracks in sequential order through your car radio system.
The sound quality was fine-- I may be an audio Luddite, but I could not hear the difference between playing a CD and the quality produced by this product.
I would go further and say that this is actually better than my CD player, because the CDs will skip if scratched etc. but the solid state format of the MP3 files stops that as well.
Although this is billed as a MP3 player, it plays WMA tracks as well;
The only limitations to this product are as follows:
1. If you are using a SD card or a flash drive, then the largest size you can use is 8GB;
2. I have not found a way to skip between folders--it just plays them in the order it finds them; and
3. It starts playing immediately upon receiving power.
In my opinion, none of these three caveats are real problems, and quite for the price, it is just fine.
This unit, as with all of these FM Transmit type units are a real compromise. You always get hiss - I liken listening to your MP3s through one of these, as to listening to your music on vinyl. And ironically enough, in the areas where radio reception is worst, the quality of playback through this unit is best.
It can be very difficult to find a free area of the spectrum - I find that 87MHz or 108 MHz are the only 2 points worth trying i.e. right at the far ends of the FM radio spectrum - but this is true of all makes/models.
So do not buy this if you expect crystal clear playback - but if you crank up your MP3 units volume allowing you to reduce the volume (and hence hiss) on the radio and also, if you tamper with the treble a little to drop the top end hiss down a bit, you can get acceptable access to all your MP3s - I just plug my phone into it.
Another point; if doing this, it helps to put your phone on 'Flight' mode, i.e. no transmit/receive as this will prevent the usual interference that your phone can have with your cars FM radio.
Anyway, enough waffle, overall I have given it 4 stars. For the money it is very good as long as your expectations are managed. And by the way, I am not convinced that buying a more expensive transmitter improves the quality of sound - I have heard £50 units that are only a little better. So yes, well worth the money, neatly packaged, but ALL transmitter units of every make and model are somewhat flawed.

Had a terrible experience, used it twice before the aux port broke not even worth the pricePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Terrible quality. It fell to bits when I tried to insert a memory card. It held together with gaffer tape for a little while after that but the sound quality was terrible. Read morePublished 1 month ago by GoodOldNorthernLad
Works very well. Only drawback is its not really loud enough and have to turn volume of player and radio very high. Otherwise it is reliable.Published 1 month ago by W H.
When new it worked well, but was poor to navigate around the tracks.
Sadly mine fell to bits and was never the same after that.
But ok for the price....
