;-) Try that ?

Does this work/sound better than the no-name brands? which tend to be tinny, distorted.

Keep meaning to get something like this.

I've got one....used it a few times. Found it useless for long journeys as you need to keep changing channel to avoid strong signals from radio stations. Using locally it was just OK. At £4.99 though you could give it a try.

Sounded OK 2 me when it's not getting intereference. Radio quality really.

i've had this transmitter for a few months now, back when the hut had it for £4...
it sounds great to me
ive used it on long journeys and aslong as u keep it on something like 88.2mhz it sounds just like cd...
make sure you plug it in the cigarette lighter socket :thumbsup:

worth a punt for a fiver - thanks

My experience is the same - travelled from e mids to Scotland and only needed two frequencies - 88.1 and 107 odd. Stored them both in the memory, easy peasy.

I also like the way that at home can shove in any adapter that fits it between 4 and 12v and use it to send audio anywhere around the house, like DAB quality five live football in the bathroom without exposing the digi radio to a steamy bathroom.

Paid £13 for mine 3 years ago and never regretted a penny of it

I brought one of these last year,bit of a a pain to use,brought a cigareete powered sd card player insteadfrom a well known auction site for a few quid less thats much better,even has a lcd display and is powered by your cigareete adapter,takes 3.5 jack,sd card or usb ports.

Guess some people have better luck than others - I spent about 30 quid on this a couple of years back and have found it entirely useless - just a lot of crackling, popping and so on. Holding it up in the back of the car, so that it's just below the aerial, helps a fair amount, but in the front, it's just a waste of time. Hope folks have better luck with it

The wife bought me one last Christmas, but it was more trouble than it was worth because of interference, and I tried all the channels!
I ended up buying a Sony in-car cassette adapator from Amazon for about a tenner, which is brilliant in comparison.

Good price if it is what you want.

good price!

Most of these transmitter, particular this one are just rebrands they all look the same, alls ound the same, all work the same, it's just a sticker over the top, i've seen this model in about ninty different colours with just as many logos on it.

Hot tho

Found Basingstoke-Reading-M4 pretty poor...but as I say at £4.99 worth a punt...:thumbsup:

I agree with all Hotyoda's comments.
Its an ok device.

found this rubbish for my car, there's a horrible electric noise which comes from the speakers when using it. the only decentish FM transmitter I have found is the Griffin iTrip, but that's for iPods only.

I have had 2 of these. They suck. Have used it in UK, USA and Australia and ended up tossing one out the window between LA and San Diego out of frustration.

I got this model about 6 or more years ago. Its still working fine, not the best quality, but for £4.99 it isn't bad. It all depends on what station you set it to, and if you turn your mp3 player sound down, & the radio up it works better.

I bought one of these from wherever (Play?) a few weeks back when they were on for 7 quid.

I took it abroad, by the time I got there it was broken. No idea what happened.

This is a nice enough gadget for the money, but don't expect much. There is a hacking guide to improve reception on YouTube however, which may prove useful if range is your main goal.

Does it charge your ipod too?

In fact i've guessed it doesn't since it's connected via the headphone jack

Having read many varied reviews on this it would seem to depend on the car. The aerials are designed to pick up signals externally not from within the car itself, so some cars will receive a better signal than others.

Very slightly cheaper at the Hut - thehut.com/ele…tml

Not much in it though...

Mine's broke after a couple of months, just stopped working. It would annoyingly just switch in the middle of a song driving along and I'd have to unplug, replug it, switch it on again etc all whilst driving

Nope which I thought i would but the plug into fag lighter only runs the transmitter

I have had mine for 2 years..
No complaints.
The thing to remember when using it in the car is that it needs to be as near to the aerial as possible, putting it nearer to the radio won't make any difference. Thats where I went wrong for a while. Deffo worth a fiver IMHO

Same here - I think I paid around a tenner from Tesco but it was pretty crap - even for a fiver it's not worth it - don't waste your money.

Correction - wasnt worth it for use with an Iphone - constant interference from the data traffic on the phone - pity

Data traffic? Mine works ok with my 3G
