    Always produces some hissing which increases when you increase the volume, no matter what frequency / mode / settings used (I guess the FM signal it produces is just not powerful enough). It would be okay in a noisy truck; but in a modern, well sound-insulated car the hissing is almost always audible and quite annoying on the long term. Also the cables are quite short, especially the one from the cigar lighter to the device so you are quite limited in terms of where you can place it. Finally, unlike many other similar products, it doesn't have a rechargeable battery, nor can work using replaceable alkaline batteries; that is, the device must be connected to the cigar lighter at all times. The frequency range starts from 87.6 MHz only, and there are already radio station around 87.7-87.8 so there are interferences sometimes. My car stereo can do 87.0MHz and upwards, so it would be useful if the device could do 87.0MHz too (no radio stations at/around that low frequency), but it cannot. I can't help but I expected more from a Belkin. Not a bad product, but quite mediocre, I'd say.

    Only having an iPhone, I had the misfortune to try a few other iPod FM transmitters. Be wary if you are looking for an FM transmitter that works with an iPhone, interference will cause problems. NOT with this product from Belkin, it is designed to work flawlessly with the iPhone. As soon as I got it, I went for a drive past some cell towers where I knew I would pick up some cell chatter, the reception was clean!

    I recommend getting this product if you need / want an FM transmitter and don't go down the expensive route of trying out others. This one works out of the box and the quality of the audio is more than acceptable.

    I have used the FM transmitter for the first time today with my Iphone4. It works perfectly, much better than my friends one which I used before.

    The clear scan and app are easy to use and quick. The sound quality is incredible, there is no static and it picks a frequency which does not get interupted 10 miles down the road as the GPS assist selects a frequency which is not used near by.

    The sound quality realy is great, there is no difference compared to listening to a CD!

    I can definatly recomend, and it charges the phone ;-)

    I got this simply because my car radio has no external input sockets. The downside is that Belkin is a radio transmitter, and you have to find a spare frequency for it to transmit on. It seems pretty good at finding that, so no big problems, just another step groping round endless no-hope rappers. It also charges your iPhone - good. Downsides - nowhere obvious to put the iPhone, a cable and a gizmo lying around the gearstick area, and some sensitivity as to where the gizmo works best. So I need a cradle too, and the touch controls on the phone are not easy to operate. Not sure how legal that is when in iPod mode, but common sense says unwise to fiddle around with a touch screen when driving. But, Belkin does what it needs to do pretty well at least for jazz, pop and spoken word. Classical is always iffy in a car. The main benefit of Belkin is to use the car's speakers to hear and/or share and control volume, and I find plugged ears annoying anyway, and the iPod volume not so safe to operate; if you can use those ear things while driving, and you can handle the volume control, that's the way to do it, with a cradle phonecharger. Next time I buy a car I'm going to make sure it has a socket in it and avoid all this FM transmission stuff. Meantime, fairly happy - it does what it says.

    Very easy to set up. A little interference is to be expected. Obviously you are not going to achieve the crystal clear sound you had from your car cd stereo, but this cost considerably less than replacing the CD player on my Honda Accord. Very pleased with the result considering the price!

    The main reason for choosing this product is that the audio system in my Peugeot 207 doesn't have an auxiliary input, and I prefer to use the much bigger choice of music on my iPhone 4S to CD's through the car speakers. I have tried other cheaper versions of FM Transmitters, but after carefully looking at reviews for many products I decided to pay a bit more than I have in the past and get this one. I have to say, it is brilliant and really easy to use. It works a treat with my combination of car and iPhone and the sound quality is very good. When you download the free app it means that you can control the device with your iPhone to scan for suitable 'free' frequencies and it can then use the iPhone GPS system to make better choices for you. The bonus is that as my car audio system has RDS the names of the artist and track scroll across my car's on board computer display so it really does feel like you are listening to a CD or the radio. There is also a PRO Setting button which allows you to change the the average volume of the sound from the iPhone to the stereo dependant on the type of music or audio books etc.

    I was trying to find a FM transmitter that worked with my iPhone 4 and this fitted the bill. A couple of small problems surfaced though.

    I fitted an Apple bumper to the phone and the plug-in adapter wouldn't connect without slipping the cover off first, annoying every time you use it. The plug needs to be as slim as the recharger Apple supply as standard. Secondly although the reception was virtually hiss-free when I'd worked out the controls and channel, I had to put the iPhone under the passenger sun visor to get the best reception. This left a cable bisecting you and and the passenger leading up from the cigar lighter socket. I did try other areas like on the seat next to me but it looks like an iPhone holder attached to the dashboard may be the answer. Different cars may have different reception areas so maybe it's mine.

    Overall a great product and the iPhone app using GPS is a great help finding a free channel for tuning. It works fine with my 1G iPod Touch as well even though it throws up a warning telling you to use the app which I can't. You won't be disappointed.
