how does this work , will it work with my mp3 player ? do i plug it intomy mp3 earphone socket ?
can anyone explain for a thicko ???
you plug the device into the earphone socket, set a frequency on the device, and then on your radio find the same frequency and you're a winner

so it will work with anything that has an earphone socket.
wow, not bad for laptops n phones too :D Great for a fiver!
Couple of positive reviews at amazon, where it is a tenner
Both comment on the flimsiness of the wires though...
Bought one from Play a while ago. It's essentially useless when used with just the battery. It can't generate a decent signal. Feed it external power and it gets much better, easily providing a reliable signal in car. Also comes with a 12v adaptor for use in car so it's a no-brainer at £5. Bought mine solely for use in a hire car/van for going away in later in the year. My Dad uses it in his car in the meantime with his MP3 player and it does the job.

No one in their right mind could vote this cold.
[SIZE="2"]For a fiver, if I get to use it just a couple of times I think it will have been well worth it and so I've just bought one.

BTW, a few available on that well known auction site:whistling: for £7.50 post free.[/SIZE]
fm transmitters are really good and for £5 you cant complain.

Personaly i have an ipod and found that the griffin iTrip was a smarter choice at around £10 more as it connects to the connection port on the ipod and not the aux port but also looks realy stylish and runs off the ipods battery.

The only thing i would say about fm transmitters is the quality is never as good as burning songs to a rewritable disk but they are always usefull on the go.

Final point is when using them in cars, as car areials tend to be very strong and therefore it is often hard to find a blank station to use for the tranmitter but all in all they do there job well.

Hope thats gives a few pointers and tips for people who dont know about fm transmitters :)
In my experience I found FM transmitters to be poor.....the quality of the sound I mean. That's to do with the limitations of FM though.
Bought.. :)
Ordered one thanks
£5 plus quidco us great value for UK. Even the ones like this from hong kong are about this price, but this will have quick delivery


The only thing I can say is the sound quality isnt as good as a CD, but is fine
bought one ....hope its clear signal
They are all rubbish poor sound quality and signal is pants i don't know why you lot think its a bargain at £5 i bought one when they first came out and it was only a £5 then its been slung in the glove box since as its crap and it was bought from play and was a decent one.
cold cold cold
I was having problems with finding a blank station with my version, however, on a site a lorry driver suggested 107.4 and had no problems/interference since.

If you check the display on play.coms pic it's set to 107.4 too.:whistling:
I had one and wasn't overly impressed. The first problem was that as I did my daily commute, I passed through several transmitter ranges, so a frequency that worked at home became unusable by the time I got to work.

The second problem was the sound strength. While the actual FM signal strength was good and the car stereo could lock on to it no problem, the sound level was too low to listen to. Even an amplifier between MP3 player and unit didn't help. To listen to anything I had to turn the volume right up, but then I had the traditional FM interference hiss taking over. It might have been better if I had an audio source with a louder volume.

For a fiver its worth a go (the problems I had are not exactly common), but I won't be getting one.
i used it as hands free on my mobile, seeing as my n95gb has 3.5mm jack. works ok.
[size=2]Oooh Errrr Missus - just had an email from Play to say that they have "posted" my gizmo, that's just 17 hours after confirming the order and it's Sunday!![/size]
If your headunit takes aux input in the front then get a 3.5-3.5mm cable cheap (about £2) and use that much better quality.
If your headunit takes any kind of MD, ext or aux input from the rear of the unit then get an RCA (red and white) to 3.5mm cable and get someone that knows a bit about cars to fit it for you.
The audio quality from the cables will be so much better than an FM transmitter and cheaper too :D

Unless you live in merseyside where u have 107.6 Juice FM :|
