The basics

The Gear4 BluFM is a Bluetooth hands-free kit that also includes an FM transmitter for beaming your MP3 player’s songs to a nearby car stereo.

The good

The BluFM turns your iPod into an in-car pirate radio broadcaster, albeit one with a limited range (basically your front seat). You can scootch between FM frequencies to avoid interference from so-called ‘proper’ radio stations (airwave hogs!) and the BluFM even thoughtfully pauses the music when a call comes in. The Bluetooth hands-free tech keeps you limbs safely free for making obscene gestures to other drivers or picking your nose while you chat. And, er, indicating, changing gears and steering, obviously.

The bad

Don’t expect crystal-clear reception from this budget gadgets – its FM broadcasts sound closer to AM signals from Radio Azerbaijan in a snow-storm, and your callers might wonder why you’re talking to them from the inside of an industrial washing machine while wrestling some extremely vocal snakes. The Gear4 takes its power from the cigarette lighter but you’ll need to remember to keep your MP3 player’s battery topped up.

The bottom line

A small, smart device to take on holidays and for use in rental cars, but you might want a better-sounding sonic solution for your daily ride.

To have this functionality working at it's best you would need something like

Bare in mind the reviews on this gear 4 unit are based on a £40 ish price point as well so you cant go wrong at this price imo. I've used one and the quality didn't seem too bad after a bit of fiddling with different frequencies

Thanks and ordered.
Most of the poor comments relate to the hands free functionality which I dont really need anyway. I just wanna stream music to the radio so this is perfect.

Picking up on Monday so will report back. If its that bad, its going back!.

Have to report I love this gadet!. Had it working within minutes of unpacking. The comments about hearing a little hiss etc are true, but for me only if nothing is playing and I turn the volume on the radio up very loud. This is an FM signal anyway so what do people expect?.

I'm very impressed and would definetly recommend this. I have an O2 contract with the unlimited data bolt on (also from a thread off here) and via Bluetooth I can now link up my phone to the car radio and listen to streaming net radio.

A cheap and cheerful solution with a load of benefits. im thinkin of getting a second too!
