Ownership verified by DX Very handy for older cars

Overall Rating: starstarstarstar

Pros: Good price for something like this, these are selling locally for three to four times the price, and don't come with a remote.



Takes SD, USB and have line in, covers just about all your music players. The player takes in MP3 and WMA (which I never use because I don't use M$ Windows, but might be handy for others).

Cons: Instruction manual did not tell you how to change between 'normal' and 'random', but wasn't too hard to figure out.



Remote is not that useful, especially for the driver. Could include a steering-mount remote which is much easier to use, but probably more expensive.

Other Thoughts:

Bottomline: Get this if you have an older car stereo that doesn't support MP3 player, and don't want to spend money on a new stereo.

Pros: This is a small compact unit with a hinge in the middle so it can be bent up to 90 degrees. The reason i picked this model apart from the price is the fact you can use it with line-in, memory card or usb flash key which makes it very flexible. This is the first one of these i have ever owned so i have nothing to compare it with but the sound quality is generally very good.

Cons: When using the line-in function there is a bit of a hiss which can get annoying. I have tried two different MP3 players through it using the line in so it isn't the mp3 player. When using the memory card function this noise is not there.



When using the memory card the transmitter only detects one file on it, so all your music has to be in one massive file. I bought a 4gb card especially to use with this player but am now going to buy several small 256mb cards and only have two or three albums on each because of this.

Other Thoughts: The CD player in my car has stopped working and as funds are a bit tight i thought this kind of thing is the way ahead. It is very quick to set up and small enough to live in my door pocket out of the way of prying eyes

Bottomline: Fantastic gadget at a very good price

Pros: Excellent product to us and fit in car easily tuned to in car radio and sound quality excellent best on I have seen on the market a lot better than derer ones usese both sd card and usb stick excellent value and build remote is easy to use and small enough to keep in pocket

Cons: have not been able to find any fault as yet

Other Thoughts: In the uk these are selling for nearly 20 gbp and only uses sd card

Bottomline: would recommend this product to any one and I am going to ordr some more as early christmas presents

Pros: Same thing sells as a MachSpeed on Tigerdirect for 30. Worked like a charm. Used an SDHC 4GB card without any problems. the LCD is small but very nice. remote works fine. Quality is pretty good, obviously depends on your mp3 bitrate.

Cons: -Starts from the beginning of a track on restart.

-Cannot forward within a track. skips to the next track. will try from remote to see if that works.

-Does not remember what track/where it stopped.

Other Thoughts: Restarts from the first track. That's because my honda switches off the outlet. In cars that do not power off the outlet, this will play on and on. you'll need to pause when you turn off the engine. would have been a good idea to have a LiIon battery inside to remember the settings. If that happens, this is much better than lugging an ipod (Read:Expensive BRICK) in your car.

Bottomline: 13 bucks well spent.

Yeah, i thought whats the worst that can happen for £6? Well the build quality was atrocious, and i accept that DX's stuff isnt usually the best. The music was barely audible and the SD slot broke my SD card it was that poorly constructed. IR remote works if its 1 inch from the unit.

I wouldnt touch one again but thats just my experience.

lol at Andy.

So where does the sound play from? if it only plugs into the car lighter part...

I've been using this for a few weeks now. Reception is excellent (you can retune it to any frequency between about 88 and 92 I think) and I have a cheap USB flash for each type of music. (2.99 for 1Gb from 7 day shop). Has a line-in too, but I've never used that.

From me: Recommended.
#14
Thanks

Ordered :)

Having an oldish Fiesta with only a tape deck, i tried an itrip but battery life is a joke so then moved to one of those tape adapters but all the wires are a nightmares! Fingers crossed 3rd time lucky :-D

I have one of these and posted a negative review giving only the facts that dealextreme censored for some reason lol fascists. Its good for the price although in the 5 cars I've tried it in a low beep/buzz is evident in the background ON EVERY FREQUENCY, obviously the music drowns it out most of the time but the higher u turn the volume up the louder the buzzing, f**king annoying if you ask me. Luckily I saw that lovely offer for the goodmans direct mp3 cd player with ipod dock for £21 on here and snatched it up about 2 weeks later. Transmitter still gets used though by my girlfriend who is borrowing it until she can get a cheap cd player like me :D and ask me to fit it no doubt...

Also something else of note, I have tried a PSP fm transmitter from argos for £2 that was on here too and it uses the PSP battery as opposed to the car cigarette lighter and has no buzzing noise so the buzz may be related to using in-car power, not sure if all cars do it though.

if its **** will just wack it on ebay make a few quid back!

I've been using a similar device from Deal extreme for a couple of weeks and have been really pleased http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.11218

The quality of the sound received depends on you finding a 'clear' FM frequency to tune to. In my case as I drive in toward London for work I start to hear annoying hiss on the device. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a frequency that is clear at home and at work yet :roll:, but it's only for 5 miles out of a 25 mile journey that I hear the interference so I'm very happy with the £7 I spent :)

I also have one of these. I use it on a daily basis using a 4GB USB flash drive. On the whole it's worth the cash, though there are a couple of quirks.

1) The unit is labelled MP3 WMA FM Modulator, however I've never managed to get WMA working despite trying at least 6 different bitrates and versions. Since the product spec, box, etc never actually referred to WMA support, I'm guessing that this is a lie.

2) When using the inbuilt MP3 player with my USB flash drive, I find that if the track is very bassy and the modulator volume is set too high there is a lot of static and distortion. This is fixed if I drop the volume on the modulator and turn it up on the radio.

3) At one point a line on the LCD display on mine stuck completely (the entire line was on at all times), however this corrected itself later and hasn't happened again since.

4) The player display is quite good, but only displays filenames, not track details.

5) The only way to navigate tracks is via "Next Track" and "previous track", there is no album/folder skip support. This isn't a real problem for me since I usually keep it on shuffle.

I've never tried using the remote, so can't comment on the quality. It's probably also worth noting that if I connect my Xen Micro to the modulator via USB it doesn't recognise it as a storage device, but it does charge the player and I can still hook it up via the supplied headphone cable and play tracks that way.
#19
Here I go again.
For anyone who hasn't used deal extreme before, myself and many others have experienced problems with their awful returns/replacement policy, they will make up excuses or avoid your complaints. Although generally they are pretty good at delivering decent products when they turn up and are working. If you do want to buy from them, it's a case of caveat emptor.
#20
I've been using one of these for a few months.

Tune in to any station between 87.6 and 104??? whatever.

I'm using a 2GB SD card. Don't need a bootful of CD's anymore.

The remote makes this so simple to use.

HOT HOT HOT!!!

I bought one of these about November time last year as a cheap way to get mp3's into the car - I don't own an mp3 player, so this seemed ideal. As several people have said, it's only £6 so what's the risk!

Personally I didn't like it, I found the sound quality to be lacking on all frequencies (and I live out in the sticks so it wasn't intererence from another station) with a permenant hissing whatever. I the end I decided to buy a new Sony head unit with usb socket and the difference is unbelievable. I know it cost 10 times more, but it was certainly worth it for me.

Bottom it did work, just not very well for me!

if it has a headphone socket it should

These things seem to depend on the quality of your aerial, and more to the point how far your aerial is from the fag lighter -- the closer the better.

We have one that is used in our second car (which is usually an old nail). The "old faithful" Nissan Sunny we had was great -- aerial directly over the rear view mirror -- and it worked a charm. Decent sound etc.

Our "new" old car is a Daewoo, with the aerial round the back (motorised jobbie) -- poor signal from that.

Luck of the draw -- and not the item's fault really. What you really want is either a new head unit (£20 S/H from ebay for an MP3 one) or an FM modulator (£10-15) which fits into the existing radio's aerial input -- perfect sound from these.

> Hey man, How is your Sunny, I got a b12 just few months before~

Some twonk drove out in front of SWMBO -- so it's in the great scrapyard in the Sky :(

Not complaining though -- the shock absorbers needed replacing and I got £900 for it from the insurers, then was *given* the Daewoo with 42K on the clock. Runs like a new car -- so quids in :)

So the one you have is a B12/13/14?

I think sunny is a reliable car~
#32
B13 (1994).

*ALL* Nissans of that period were uber-reliable :) I have a 2000 Primera currently as the first motor, never gives any trouble.
#33
For **** sake gets a life. why all these comments? Anyway I drive a Ford and find them to be reliable easy to repair etc although lacking in a bit of charisma. Oh my god I'm doing it too...

Just answering questions put to me!
#35
Actually i also had a Sunny many years ago- super little car.
Only lol
#36
Anyway, I think the basic point was lost -- your results may vary because each car is different. In particular cars with motorised aerials will most likely perform poorly because (a) the aerial is round the back, and there is effectively a Faraday cage around the transmitter, and (b) the motor itself seems to interfere with the signal periodically (at least it does on the Daewoo).
#37
Anybodys been dispatched yet? :)

Mine came today. Its much beter than I expected and tunes in very clearly once you find a good frequency. £6 well spent
#39
I hate to ask but how do you select shuffle?

EDIT: Ahhhh, it helps to be able to see the display ;)
banned#40
Mine was delivered today. Will put it to the test later on. I have one already, but that took batteries and the batteries always died at the wrong time.....hopefully those daysare over.
