Looks a bit cheap, is rather fiddly, but does the job
on 20 December 2010
I bought this for two reasons:
1. To stream audio from my mobile phone to the car radio via FM.
2. To play music stored on a SD Memory card
My first impression of the device left me a little underwhelmed. The filter over the LED display came of as I was peeling off the sticker (which incidentally does not use any adhesive) attached to it. The device looks rather cheap and plasticky and less impressive than portrayed on screen.
On the positive side, it did seem to sit in the cigarette lighter socked without any trouble. It also paired successfully with my Samsung mobile phone and worked fine with my the radio. It also played music from memory cards but in this respect it does have limitations, but basically "it does what it says on the tin".
The crude LED display by todays standards, shows only 4 or 5 digits and makes it fiddly, although not impossible, to navigate folders on the memory card. The device is also limited to reading a maximum of 20 folders. It made a complete hash trying to find anything in sub-folders (yes I did try to follow the instructions in the manual) with some folders not coming up at all, while in others, it did not appear to find all of my stored mp3 tracks. So long as you have a small number of folders and not too many tracks it seems to work Ok.
Sound quality is reasonable in that there is not much noise or hiss, but is otherwise uninspiring.
