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.
As others have noted in their reviews, I suspect that a lot of issues had to do with the plethora of pirate radio stations in and around London interfering with the signal & causing the device to suddenly stop working.
I would continually have to unplug & replug it back into the cigarette socket in order to get it to work again - up to 4 or 5 times every hour or so. I ordered a replacement & obtained the same results.
When it WAS working I found the sound wasn't great, especially high frequencies which tended to sound distorted, this despite Which? stating that the sound quality for this item was 'very good'!
The volume levels were also rather low which with quieter music (e.g.: classical) made it very difficult to hear, however this is probably down to the iPhone playing out at a set volume when connected to an audio system via thunderbolt - the standard jack version might have produced louder results.
Overall, I could probably live with the product if it didn't keep cutting out, but as it stands I can't really recommend it.
As others have mentioned, the auto-tune feature doesn't seem very good. If you're having difficulties on a certain frequency then bumping it up a few 100 kHz is certainly easier than waiting 30 seconds for the tunecast to find its own frequency, then re-tuning your radio...
Another odd feature is that the tunecast turns itself off after a period of inactivity from your phone. This is annoying as you're then confronted with horrible static, and it takes a few seconds to turn back on when the your media player starts again. It would be better if it stayed on... It hasn't happened to me yet, though I wonder how it would work with phone GPS on the motorway (when the next notification is 25mi away...).

Dont know why people have gave this a good review. Cheap power plug made it almost usless and reception on the radio was ok at best. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Brian Hawkins
