This is a very good transmitter for the price. I've owned higher priced devices in the past, and this rates as good. I use it to play my i-Pod Nano, and like most transmitters, it does pick up certain interferences from wandering radio signals especially in large metropolitan areas like the one I live in. None the less, the transmitter is strong enough to filter out a lot of low power radio broadcasts for a fairly crisp sound. One of the improvements Pyle could have made was to design the head piece to swivel from side to side instead of just up and down. In a vehicle where the power point connection is situated closer to the passenger, having the ability to angle the transmitter left and right would be a real plus. The overall quality seems to be good for the type of device in this price range.
This transmitter doesn't work properly. It plugs in to my MP3 player and it plays, but something is wrong with the connection. In any song that I play, you can't hear the actual song- you can only hear the background music. There is no singing. I didn't know anything was wrong with it until I opened the packaging and attempted to use it. I even bought a different cord to try with it in case that was the problem, but it still doesn't work.

For the money, did exactly what I wanted it to do, and then some. The USB feature was underused for me, but I could definitely see its advantages. The interface is easy to navigate for USB mode and will just plug and play for mp3 player mode.

It does what I want it to do. I have my Sony MP3 player plugged in to it and have not had any station issues like other reviews have complained about. Obviously if you live in an area that has alot of radio stations, you are going to have more trouble finding an open station. It has a lot of buttons that I have not played with yet, but I just wanted it to play my MP3 player in the car simply. Haven't used the remote, don't see the point if I am 6 inches away from the player. Good product for the money.

This transmitter has a strong signal and is received well on my radio - sounds as good as any clear FM station. It's working good with a 2G SD card. Remote is required to change folder (album), although song can be changed or random mode selected with the buttons on the device. Remote has poor range, perhaps due to a low battery (battery was included). Comes with an instruction sheet with button and remote functions detailed. No on/off switch, and since my car's cig lighter stays on all the time, even with the car off, I have to unplug it every time (could probably leave it in for short periods without killing the car battery). Display is pretty hard to read while driving. I would prefer it if it was possible to change folder with the buttons on the device instead of using the remote. But its also possible to plug any mp3player into it. It comes with short male-to-male 3.5mm cable for that purpose, as well as an extra fuse. Overall this device does what I wanted it to do - plays my mp3 files on the radio fairly conveniently. Sure beats buying a new radio.
This product is Excellent for anyone who wants to listen to there music from there mp3 device. It's easy to use and has high quality sound out put. A really great gift idea, you just plug it in and play cool. Its nice when you're in your car to be able to listen to your music from your mp3 player and it's so simple to use i don't go anywhere without it now. And the sound is so good you think you're listening just to you're mp3 player not the transmitter.
