The device works exactly as it says. I looked at several similar devices and found this one at Walmart. I ordered on line and picked it up at the store. Read the information on the package first. Works with any radio, cheap or expensive. Examine the device. Note, you can use a card, a flash drive or your personal MP3 player, but note that it is much easier to put all of your music onto a card or flash drive. Do NOT use FOLDERS, select your music as singles one by one to create a single folder. You can mix or match your music, BUT not folders. The device cannot read more than one folder. Easy to install (PUSH) into the cigarette lighter. Set the your FM radio frequency from you radio so that the Transmitter./mps3 USB modulator uses that signal. (My radio frequency is 91.5 FM) Comes with a remote control and an extra fuse. Would NOT recommend using THE REMOTE while you are driving and the selection playing on the transmitter/modulator is DIFFICULT to see on the device THAT IS PROTRUDING FROM THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER. I DON'T USE THE REMOTE. A PASSENGER MAY USE IT FOR YOU, BUT IT IS EASIER TO REACH AND PUSH THE BUTTON. When I change any selection, I reach over and push the FORWARD button to move to next selection. Generally, not knowing what it will be. Use the radio's volume and tone controls. You can use several flash drives FOR WHAT EVER DEDICATED MUSIC YOU WANT. It is not a perfect device, but its works well for $20 bucks from Walmart.

Take this, for $19, and a 16 gig thumb drive, for about $16, and you have a great solution for hundreds of hours of decent digital music through your car radio, especially if you have a lighter or convenience outlet that is switched by the car's ignition switch. I suggest the USB memory stick, rather than an SD memory card, which this also supports, because everyone has a USB port on their PC, but may not have an SD reader/writer. If your PC does, even better. Use the SD card, it's more compact. There's also a 2.5mm jack for connection of externals such as an MP3 player, scanner or other audio source. THINGS I LIKE: o With support for USB, SD and external devices via patch cable, it's flexible enough to meet most any need. o Setup is remembered if power is removed, don't need to reset anything if you disconnect it. o It remembers what song you were playing, and restarts that song next time power is applied. o A 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable is included for external devices, as is a spare fuse. o Very compact, with a decent, if small, display so you can see what's going on. o Easy to set up and install. o Includes a wireless remote control, in addition to controls on the face of the unit. Nice! THINGS I DON'T LIKE: o Included documentation is minimal, and in at least one case incorrect. o Documentation indicates music in folders is not supported. Incorrect, works just fine and even works for sub-folders, at least on USB. Makes it a lot easier to manage if that's how your music is organized on your PC. o No mention in documentation of set-up for single play, folder only, sequential or random play, all of which the unit supports. Access these by hitting the pause button. o Their website has no added documentation, corrections or help. o While the unit has its own volume control, even when this is set at max the audio level is noticeably lower than audio off a broadcast FM station. Thus, you'll need to get used to cranking it up when switching to this, and remember to lower the volume before switching back to broadcast FM in order to avoid blowing your ear drums (or speakers) out. Irritating, but not a deal-breaker. All in all, this is a really great solution, and a surprising value!

I have had this product for about 3 weeks. It does all it says and more; as a previous reviewer stated, it can handle folders at several levels. Also, as previously reviewed, the documentation with the product and on the website is sketchy at best. Just play with it some to find all it can do. The only trouble encountered was trying to move from one folder to another and this simply takes experimenting. The random setting will include all songs in all folders. The built in EQ presets, while nice, are somewhat narrow for my own use but may be found useful by others. The remote is quite useful in some situations. As far as signal quality there has been no interference from radio stations or the vehicle. It can accept USB, SD or 3.5mm input so can connect to almost any type of media device. I have an 8 gig. SD card and it immediately recognized it and, at 3 weeks, still have not heard half of the music on it. Also, when plugged back in it will start at the beginning of the last song you heard. In conclusion, you are getting what you've paid for plus a little more than advertised. A simple and economic alternative for playing MP3's, etc. in your vehicle.

Excellent performance. Good output power with clear, loud signal. Easy to operate and the remote control is a big plus. I especially like the fact that it takes USB flash drives or SD memory cards, so you don't have to have an MP3 player to use it. No fumbling with an MP3 player. No wires in the way. Just plug it into cigarette lighter and go.

My wife was listening to audiobooks on her GPS but the speaker wasn't loud enough. She tried her phone and found the same. Her vehicle doesn't have an audio jack input and no tape player. I had a few FM transmitters laying around from bulk accessory purchases for phones and ipods, and none would provide anything more than static. I read the great reviews for this one and decided to try it. It doesn't matter where you tune this thing, you could plop it down right on top of a local station and you still get crystal clear sound. As clear as my cable-connected setup in my car. The slight background hum that we did hear was easily corrected by turning down the radio volume and turning up the volume of the player (she uses her phone). It doesn't have preset frequencies, you can adjust the frequency used by .1Hz intervals. The car radio can only be adjusted +/-.2Hz! We set it at the last frequency on the dial. Other than that, we don't have to touch it. No need for the included remote. Comes with a spare fuse even! GREAT PRODUCT! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
