I am inspired to write a review based on the other reviews. I purchased this unit over 2 years ago. I use a USB/ w/ mp3. I am a construction worker and I needed something simple yet durable. I use this device everyday and I can say without a doubt that I am going to purchase another one very soon, just to have a spare around. In my two vehicles, both trucks, I get very clear transfer of sound to my FM Radio station. I don't use the remote for I just don't need it. I do wish it had blue tooth connectivity so my phone could connect. I will also say the screen is a little small for reading while driving (don't recommend that). I just set on random play and have listening pleasure for hours, while driving. I discovered something else interesting about a year ago. If I keep it in one truck and have the truck on and I get in my other truck, turn radio on, and I can listen on the radio (very clear) in the other vehicle. About 20' apart are the two vehicles. So, I am saying that I have had a great experience with this device. Certainly can't say that with all electronic devices. This one is a gem if you don't have an mp3 player in your older vehicle. Most vehicles today come with a USB/Bluetooth, etc and don't need this device. As another note: If you are having trouble with clear signal with this unit, chances are you have a grounding issue, either with the cigarette charger or the ground to the chassis of the vehicle. Enjoy! (Posted on 07/02/2015)
It is what it is Review by Elizabeth

I ordered this back in June (it is now October) and it has gotten regular use. It is moved between cars and my husband has used it in his ambulance at work. I wanted to get some real use out of this thing before leaving a review. Sometimes the sound has static. That's okay with me as I'm not trying to recreate concerts in my car. The device hasn't been an issue as far as connection goes, but I've only plugged it into my Galaxy S3 to listen to Spotify. I never tried it with a flash drive. Last week I noticed it was "sticking". I couldn't move it up or down at the hinge to get it at a better angle. But it didn't interfere with my life choices so I shrugged it off. But a few days ago, while it was in use with my phone plugged in, the thing just exploded into three pieces. I wish I could use a different word to sound less dramatic, but it just literally burst apart during Voodoo by Godsmack (wish I were lying). Since I and my husband are in the medical field, the only kind of tape this family uses is medical tape (clear, IV type). We use it on everything, including, but not limited to, gift wrapping. I put it back together and wrapped that sucker up with some tape and it works just fine again. For the price I can't really complain. I drive a car that doesn't have an aux jack and I'm far too lazy and cheap to have a deck installed. It is what it is. It still works, though it's not as aesthetically pleasing anymore. However, I feel it fits perfectly into my image of slightly unstable and prepared for emergencies at the same time. (Posted on 30/09/2014)

I'm a high school coach that occasionally has to drive the kids to meets. I needed something that I could plug in, set up quickly, get the music going, and also be something I could use in both the district school bus or suburban. This worked great! I loaded up an 8 gig USB drive, synched the station between the player and the radio and it worked as I expected. I did have issues with static on the first couple channels I tried, however that was minimized once I switched frequencies. Three caveats: 1) Use a smaller USB drive (under 8 gig) as I've read about problems reading larger drives; 2) remember to REMOVE the device when you stop the car for longer periods, as you'll drain your car's battery; and 3) when you reinsert the device, it does NOT remember the last song you were on and instead starts at the beginning -- another reason to use a smaller drive. The problem? This product is definitely not built for longevity. The connector tip fell off at some point after my third trip, and now it's useless. The functionality is worth it to me, though, so I've ordered another one, however this time I'll examine the unit more closely and see if there's a way I can secure the tip so that it doesn't fall off again.

Works Good Review by Sherry

This product is super easy to use: Just plug in to your cigarette lighter. Read the station number. Set your radio to the same station. Plug one end of the cord (provided) into the FM transmitter and plug the other end into your headphone jack. Turn on your device (MP3, phone or other music storage unit) et voila, it works! It works best if you have a playlist, otherwise, scroll about and select music to play on your device. I'm taking away 1 star for quality; whatever plastic it's made of seems kinda flimsy, but for the price it's fine. (Posted on 25/09/2013)
Clear radio quality sound Review by sync0p3

Purchased this for my 05' Nissan Murano after the CD/Aux player stopped working. The unit broke and it was a costly fix $$. I decided to avoid the cost since there were more pressing mechanical issues in the truck that needed to be addressed first (CVT specifically). So, day after day, I was driving to and from work listening to JUST FM radio; ..if I hear that McDonald's Commercial ONE MORE TIME. *Counts to ten, ..calm* Ok, so I looked stumbled upon this as an alternative solution to my dilemma. It works through the FM radio, so expect FM radio quality sound. I loaded a 4gig SD card with my MP3s and this thing works great. The sound is clear, but of course as I stated before, it's radio quality, also it's a little on the low volume side so you'll need to turn your stereo up significantly with highway speeds/windows down. It does not "punch" like an actual CD or direct input might, but it does the job nicely for cheap. I like it and will continue to use it for my sanity. There is nothing worse than being stuck in rush hour traffic with just FM radio, buy this. I always go for the cheapest shipping, but this was a must needed 2-Day Rush; literally just arriving in the nick of time before a meltdown. THANK YOU AMAZON and Seller..I literally almost teared up in relief. **Note** It comes with a 3.5 to 3.5 cable so you can connect your phone or MP3 player directly as well. Also the remote is a nice touch to flip through songs! (Posted on 05/07/2013)

Was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Review by Cliff Woerner

My Experience: I was looking for something I could listen to my music playlist in my car, as my CD player doesn't work. I wanted an FM tuner that took a line in via a headphone jack (as most all of them I had seen until now worked only with an iPod, and I don't use one of them). I saw a bunch of them, and decided that this one was the best price with the features I was looking for. When it arrived, I thought I would be disappointed. The plastic casing is not very durable, and I was worried that I had gone TOO cheap. When I had plugged it in, and tuned it to the station, things seemed well. When I played my music, though, It sounded like I only had the right channel (or left). I thought it was my cable (the provided cable it too short for me). However, I found that the internal component moved when I plugged into the jack, and was unable to be pushed all the way in! However, in about 5 min, I had opened it up, made a slight adjustment, and all has been well since! The thumb-drive slot worked great, and though I haven't yet tested the SD card slot, I don't see why that would have any issues. The sound quality is excellent! You have a wide range of stations you can tune to (more than even some car stereos will go to), and if you are getting static, simply tune to another station. Also, if you use the line in option (headphone jack), make sure the volume of your device is set lower, and use the car stereo volume. You will have to test it to optimize your sound. It did come with a remote, but as the unit is close enough to reach, I have no real use for the remote. Some people might. And as I mentioned, the cord that was provided for line in was very short, but this might suit someone's needs just fine. So, here are the PROs and CONs for this device from my experience: CONs: - Casing feels very cheap, and doesn't seem durable - Had to make an adjustment to get the line in to function correctly (might have just been my unit) PROs: - Multiple options for music input - Excellent sound quality - All inputs work (again, after small adjustment, might have been my unit) - Wide range of stations to choose from - Easy to operate For me, the PROs far outweigh the cons, and I would recommend this to anyone looking. As I said, I've only had it for a few days (a week at the most), and have used it virtually every day with no issues. So long as you take care of it, there should be no issues. If something does go awry, I will update my review. As of now, I couldn't be more happy with it. Update: The unit still transmits music without a problem. Though, if it plays from a USB port, you do have to turn the volume up on your own stereo louder than you normally would. Also, the buttons kind of fell apart, and I never pushed them hard at all. I managed to fix it with some tape, but I was a bit annoyed about that. Only other thing I noticed was the shuffle feature. If you are putting your music on shuffle, if you hit the skip button, it will skip to the next song in the order it is on the USB drive. Once that song finishes playing, it will START OVER at the BEGINNING of the "shuffled" list (almost that it builds a list when shuffle is selected, and remembers that "shuffled" order). It isn't a true random order, like you would get in iTunes or any other music program. However, even with those nuances, I am still pleased overall with this little transmitter. Update: The little device finally fell apart. And I mean that in the most literal sense. The buttons, the case, it quite literally fell to pieces. Obviously, I will not be purchasing this model as a replacement. (Posted on 25/05/2013)

This MP3 player works great. I got this for my wife who has only FM in her car. Darn Ford. Anyway, i used a simple 4GB SDHC, she put her songs on it from her PC, Plug into lighter socket, set FM freq, use remote to push play and forward etc. For the price there is nothing to complain about whatsoever.

Works Like It Should Review by Matthew W.

I wanted an FM transmitter that would work well and not need batteries. This seemed to have decent reviews at a good price. I have used it for a few hours and it has worked well. I have even left it in a really hot car and it still works. Only a few small cons. The line in plug is a bit tough to plug into. The frequencies take a while to scroll through. Also, although both car radios I know only do odd frequencies, this transmitter also does the even frequencies. Maybe useful, but takes twice as long to get to new frequencies. The car I have used it for has great FM reception and picks up at least some signal on every frequency even though I don't live near a major area. I have been able to find a few open frequencies, and the transmitter works great. At least as good as I got with a tape adapter (stereo just ejects tapes now, hence this purchase). It can have occasional interference, but once I worked out the frequencies available, it hardly ever has this issue. The SD and USB features are nice, haven't had an occasion to try them yet. Also, I was hoping to use the USB to charge my Android phone. While my phone was just sitting there, it seemed to be able to charge it. However, while running Waze and playing music, the charge keeps shutting off. Disappointing but nothing serious for me. (Posted on 31/05/2012)

The product is easy to use in the car, and comes with everything that was supposed to come with in the packaging. The only thing I needed to buy was the flash drive, and it works perfectly fine. The only thing I didn;t like was that I could not go back after I selected a song, it only had a forward option that worked. (Posted on 10/09/2011)
