  • Barely worked Cheaply made, toy-like feel
    Verified Purchase

    Wasted my money, it barely worked, never clear reception and display wasn't very visible. It was like a solar calculator screen appears when it doesn't get enough light.

  • Very versatile
    Verified Purchase

    I am loving it so far. It is very versatile. It has a place to put batteries so you can take it anywhere or plug it into your car so you don't have to have batteries. it has multiple connection options and broadcast pretty well. So far, I love it, but I have only had it for a couple of weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed that the honeymoon doen't end.

    Verified Purchase

    I wanted to listen to my ipod over my car speakers & it works fine. It's a bit difficult finding the correct station that works, but when I did, it was good.

  • Not what I was looking for but it does work.
    Verified Purchase

    I got this to replace my FM transmitter that I got several years ago with my ipod. The original transmitter was $85.00 and well worth it! If not for a monumental coffee spill, I would still be using that one:( This one would work, but my peeps have advised me to get the tape converter instead. So, this will be yet another thing to add to my overflowing trunk. Oh well, at least it was extrememly cheap.
