"Make car rides and road trips more enjoyable with this handy FM …"Make car rides and road trips more enjoyable with this handy FM transmitter"If I had the need to use one of these then my car would be so old or basic that the chances of me enjoying the ride would be slim. It's a great price but is there a need for one of these in 2020!?!


Having something old and basic does not mean it's any less fun! All that glitters is not gold.. live by that and life becomes awesome!

Both the Ford focus mk2s at my house don't have Bluetooth audio or aux, so yeah there is a need.
. .. If they were any good.

Silly getting a fancy car when 90% of the journeys are local or, in my case to the train station and back.

The cash I save goes on other things.

Still I do like my music, and if I spent more than 20 mins in my car a day I'd invest in a new stereo, but for now I'll stick with the radio!

Thanks, ordered
I used one to play xmas songs over the radio in work in the first week of Jan
You can also use it to play your own music from a mp3 player then have someone scream it the middle of the song. it can be fun to watch

Ordered x02 for some reason and cancelled
Most of the reviews are bad on Argos, worth spending more for something better then this if you really need it

Does the car require aux port?

Does the car require aux port?


This is mainly for cars without an aux port by streaming music from the device on a specific frequency and broadcasting it to the radio receiver.

Bad reviews on this....
2 AAA batteries required?...how does this work then.

It needs batteries to power it. You plug a phone/mp3 player into it using the aux cable. Set the radio signal on the device to an unused FM channel. Set the radio channel on your car radio or works radio or whatever to the same as that on the device. Start playing the music on your mp3 player/phone and it'll come out through your main radio. As said above, if there are multiple radios in the same area you can set them to the same station and broadcast your own music to them all.

Had one years ago and found that the sound quality could be quite crackly in a moving car. was ok in work though

Since when has a car with Aux or Bluetooth been a fancy car?

100% know where you are coming from. No point in spending silly amounts on a car if it's just short trip.My Octavia 1.6 was bought at 6 months old and has now turned 5. No need to replace it as it's now used for short commute and the occasional long distance when I need a big boot.

Bit confused now. It also says plugs into car socket :/
I have 57 reg Audi and I use a similar device that fits into aux socket. A lot cheaper than fitting a new radio and works fine.
Thanks man. Needed this. No more slit your wrists fm on my daily commute
A great deal and I've heated at this price, but I bought this quite a while ago for about £8 from ASDA with other branding but identical item. It was pretty useless due to (my) car interference and having to change the FM frequency regularly. Batteries and the 3.5mm jack connection meant it was a right pain too.

For a quid, worth a try, but when you've had enough, try something along the lines of the below as it's a neat bit of kit, works very well and makes streaming a breeze. You can also change the track using the buttons on the device without having to look at a screen which helps not swerving off the road:

The "Roav by Anker, SmartCharge F0 FM Transmitter/Bluetooth Receiver/Car Charger with Bluetooth 4.2, 2 USB Ports, PowerIQ, and AUX Output" on Amazon for £17.99. Definitely 18 or possibly a 1,000 times better, with an IQ fast charger and you connect to your phone via bluetooth rather than a 3.5mm jack connection which my latest phone doesn't even have.
I was looking at this sort of thing last year and it seems pretty consistent that the reviews suggest they can be poor quality or unreliable

I think mine might have had a power adapter for plugging into the car cigarette lighter socket too. Obviously can use that in the car for powering it rather than batteries. I think mine was mainly used in work though as I got a crackly sound in the car so I always just used batteries in it
Useless... u will never use this


You want the one that runs off the cigarette lighter
These can be quite fun for kids / adults who fancy themselves as a bit of a DJ. Home radio station.

Good point I imagine all the new fancy cars have them, but yeah I'd love an older classic. Just most of the ones I'd pick only have 2 seats which is no good with the kids, or when gigging. (although as a guitarist I could probably get away with the amp on the front seat) 😁

Thanks OP. As others have said if you are going to use it a lot get one that runs of the cig lighter, they have high powered USB sockets and you dont need to worry about batteries.

And for all the car snobs, I'll happily keep my more powerful, more fun to drive car and keep the £30k it would cost to replace it in my pocket thanks
Heat added for the price! But having had one about 15 years ago I couldnt recommend them unless its for very ocassional use! Always seemed to be worse than normal radio reception.
The interference from wifi, Blutooth etc is just too much these days for anyone to get any use out of this!

In all seriousness. That cassette with the 3.5mm jack you could plug into anything is still magic to me.
