Foreward It is very important to note that I do not live in the city. I live in a suburb 15 miles away from a major city. It's very important to keep these things in mind when buying an FM transmitter, because cities are known to have more congested radio waves (and thus less success with FM transmitters). Introduction Since I received my very first MP3 player as a gift (back in the day Please Register or Log in to view images) I have always used a simple tape adapter to connect it to the car stereo. Why not? They're cheap, and they sound just fine. If your car has a cassette player, you might not even want to read this review. That being said, I now drive a 2006 VW Jetta. While I love the car, I was sad at the loss of having a tape deck. I thought about buying a simple FM transmitter, but I became wary of sound quality problems. I delayed, until I found this great little device for a mere $30 at Amazon. Initial Reaction I received the package in a relatively attractive bright orange box. Interestingly enough, this product did not include a manual. I still don't really know how to set the presets, but I usually never have to change the transmitting station. Sound Quality I have been surprised with this product since the day I began using it. I expected terrible sound quality, as the tuner was only $30, and similiar $50-$70 tuners have the same problem, but I was very surprised. No static problems at all. I have also even noticed a couple times that one of the channels I was using wasn't even total static, yet my music played through. My only complaint is that the bass isn't as punchy as a CD is in my car stereo, but I suspect that this is due to the EQ on my iPod. Pictures Wait, what? I forgot to mention my favorite thing about this FM tuner. I suppose that a picture is worth a thousand words: Please Register or Log in to view images Without iPod. Please Register or Log in to view images With iPod. (Please excuse the poorly lit photos - there isn't much sun today.) Yes, that works exactly how it looks. It holds your iPod on a gooseneck cable (which is sturdy, for the most part) so that you can use the screen as if it was part of your radio. I love it. Summary/Pros and cons Pros: Cheap Great sound Gooseneck! Cons: Where's the manual? Gooseneck is a bit wobbly at times. Final word? I would recommend this product. It's great, and it's not too expensive.
