I bought this thing about year ago and it was not from here and it cost me more money and here is cheap as hell. It's a great thing for your car and if you love music. The radio is everywhere and it's really cheap. It sticks in where you light up your cigarette so stop smoking and put this thing in your car and start listening to some music enjoy life. I see it can charge your iPhone now which my thing can't :( Nowaday mayb e you can wait more and it can do more stuff unless the price go up then you should give this one a chance you know who doesn't love music and charge their phone. It's just a nice gift for someone who just got license or got a car you should buy it for him or buy it for yourself for this money it's cool :)
After just getting my new car, although it was new to me it was old to someone else and didn't come with a CD player but instead the old cassette deck with the huge buttons! EW... Gutted. So anyway this problem needed rectifying but having just paid a lot out for the car and insurance I am literally counting the coins in my pocket and trying to scrabble a few beans back through my reviewing addiction.
Anyway after a few minutes on google I realised the best temporary solution for me was to simply get one of these wireless FM transmitter thingy ma jig's.. Actually found mine for £5 at the local market although only a mere £1.99 more if bought online with Amazon.
The unit is simple and right down to the point of doing what it's suppose to, it's powered by the cigarette lighter in the vehicle which operates at 12v and can connect to your media device easily with a 3.5mm audio jack lead or by connecting in to the unit and in to an iphone. It also has an attractive blue lit LED screen which makes for easy visability in the dark, easy tune and setup.
All in all good product at a good price.
Thanks for reading
I bought one of these a wile back, it has a good signal and easy to use, just plug in And set your stereo fm channel and then play music on your iphone or ipod works with car radios and home stereos. Worth buying. Easy to use great product if wanting to listen to your ipod or iphone music, you will never have to use a headfone jack to listen to your phones music again. I own one of these for months now and it hasnt failed on me yet. Good price and easy to use just set your stereo to the same fm channel and thats it, Go to your iphone or ipod music and press play simple. You wont regret buying if you want to listen to your phones music. Good product. Before i bought one i would have been well happy if someone bought me it as a gift for christmas etc.
I have had 3 of these car fm transmitters and as I have said in a previous review they can be a bit hit of miss when it comes to how well they work! My first fm transmitter was awesome but after 2 years it unfortunately broke, I replaced it with a more expensive one, from the same brand, hoping it would be just as good, but unfortunately it was terrible! This is my 3rd transmitter, although it is not quite as good as my first one, it is still pretty good!
This transmitter is made by lupo (I brand I cant say I have ever heard of....) and I got it from amazon for around £5 although it currently costs £6.99. Even though the price has increased slightly since I bought it, £6.99 is a very good price. I went for this transmitter because of the price, I though for five pounds if its rubbish I haven't wasted a lot of money on it!
The fm transmitter is small, black and cylinder shaped and is around 2 inches long. It has a blueish screen with black numbers which shows you the fm frequency and it has + and - buttons on one side to adjust the frequency. The transmitter itself plugs into the bottom of your ipod and has a charging cable which plugs into the car cigarette lighter so your ipod can be charged. The charging cable is a bit on the short side (less than a meter) but its not a total deal breaker.
Using the lupo fm transmitter could not be simpler. You just need to find a frequency on your radio where there is no radio station, tune the fm transmitter to the frequency you have chosen, press play on your ipod and tada, your music will be transmitted via radio waves to your car stereo. You may need to adjust the frequency if your driving a long distance as local radio stations may start interfeering if they are broadcast on the same frequency. Since this is a cheaper fm transmitter you cannot save radio frequencies on the denise (my previous fm transmitters you could) so you have to fiddle about with it a bit if you want to find a new frequency.
The sound quality from the transmitter is pretty good, you do get some static occasionally, especially with words starting with "s", but it is not overly noticeable. My previous transmitter cost over £20 and the sound quality was terrible and also had to buy a separate charging cable for it. I thought for the price I would be getting something good but alas it was pants! This transmitter is so much better and for £6.99 an absolute bargain.
If you are trying to find a decent fm transmitter then it is definitely worth giving this a try, if it doesn't work for you then you aren't wasting a huge amount of money on it. Like I've said fm transmitters can be a bit hit or miss and what works for one person might not work for someone else, but you just need to keep trying them until you find one that suits (failing that get a radio with an attachment to plug directly into your ipod, would love one of them!).
