    I have tried and returned more than a few fm transmitters. Before buying this model I was fairly satisfied with the discontinued "Universal" Belkin tunecaster, which fit into the earphone jack of any mp3 player. However, due to not so smart design (constant cord stress above the connector plug) the wire frayed and I had to replace it.

    I subsequently bought the updated model (exclusively for ipods) which now plugs into the base, thereby charging the player at the same time. First off, it was quite arduous finding a suitable frequency for this unit, and even when I did, it never held onto it for very long. During the 30%-35% of the time it worked properly, the sound was acceptable... but the rest of the time was interference, hissing, bleed-in from neighboring frequencies and, consequently, looking for free wavelengths and readjusting the transmitter.

    What s more, the controller goes all over the place- and even though there s a mounting attachment, the "ideal" spot seems to vary constantly, and so is of limited use. This was in 3 three different vehicles, by the way.

    After further research, I took a leap of faith as a result of good reviews from a handful of consumers on a "Radio shack/The Source" web-site (I found no other reviews on the web!).

    It cost half as much as many other models (including the Belkin), but man, how nice is it when a device delivers on what it s supposed to do?

    It completely took control over (and held) the very first frequency I tried and, save for between tracks, there was virtually NO background noise or static. The only quirk I found was a boosting of bass which caused some distortion in the speakers. This was immediately remedied by lowering the ipod volume (which was on high), and compensating with the volume in the car.

    Very happy with this purchase.

    I bought this product around 6 months ago. If you will be using this product to listen to Podcast it will work just fine. However, if you plan to use it to broadcast music it has its short-comings. For some reason the bass is transmitted way to high. You must turn it down on your Ipod and your stereo. It will greatly effect the quality of your music.

    This transmitter has so little power, it gets walked on by neighboring stations and stations too weak to even listen to. It broadcasts with such low volume, that you need to turn up the radio volume up to the point that electrical engine noise is grossly annoying. I ended returning it with one hour of use.
