By pushing a single button, Belkin's ClearScan technology will automatically scan to find the best FM frequency so that you can enjoy the music on your iPod static-free in your car. With an improved FM transmission, the sound is better than before. And the large LED tells you at exactly what frequency the music is being broadcast.
Once you find a clear station, you can set it to one of two presets on the TuneBase. This is especially useful around your local area and areas that you frequent, because you can quickly return to these stations at the touch of a button.
The TuneBase also has a line-out feature that lets you use it with car-stereo inputs or cassette adapters. The built-in PRO setting optimizes the audio and provides a volume boost for the best sound possible.
Built-in Charger and Stand Works with All Docking iPods An integrated auto charger plugs into the cigarette lighter so you needn't worry about running out of power while on a road trip. With a flexible steel-neck mount and a swivel cradle, you can position the iPod for optimal viewing and accessibility. The antenna is integrated into the neck for a clean look. Multiple cradles are included for compatibility with all docking iPods.
The Belkin TuneBase FM with ClearScan is backed by a 3-year warranty.

I took it out of the box, found the right adapter that best fit my iPod
(Cassic 160GB)and installed it. Well there are two parts. One is the Cradle, which holds it on the sides and the Pad, which goes in the back of the unite that keeps it from moving forward. With both of these in place I have a good tight fit for my iPod.
The "ClearScan" feature does not work all that well. Every time I used it the unite kept finding a station that was occupied or sort of had a station using it. So I did it manually. I found a nice clear station 104.3
I and noticed that there are two buttons a 1 and 2 button that lets you preset stations that you've found to be clean and clear and store these in memory for later use. I would like to use them, but every time I pressed the 1 button, it went to 107.3 which has a station in it already. The 2 button also has the same station as its preset. I can not get it to reprogram and thus, this feature is useless.
The unit does a good job at charging your iPod.
There is a feature called "Pro" and it boost up the sound and I think the transmission signal of the unit. There is "normal" that gives you a good but not great signal. I tried Pro 1 and its not much better than Normal.
I've found that Pro2 and Pro work best. With Pro it sounded as good as if I had been at home listing to my iPod through my stereo.
(note: on the unit their is a button that says "Pro" and on the display it reads as Normal, Pro1, Pro2 and Pro with a .o0(Thought Bubble)0o. out beside it.)
I like the arm that the unite rests on, stiff but very flexible.Read more ›
The Belkin Tunebase is in a whole new category by itself. It is not because of the built in dock for charging or the extension arm to see the display or the 1/8" jack to use the Aux port on new stereos or the ClearScan FM selection process, but the Pro 2 power level for the FM transmitter. The Tunebase has three different power levels and this is what allows the unit to over power even co-located stations or distance weak ones that other transmitters can't. The ClearScan is the second best feature because it does do a good job of finding empty stations. The Belkin Tunebase is not perfect, especially in big cities like LA, but it does work well and is easy to use. Just hold down the button below the display and it will display in a second a new frequency that you tune your car stereo to. It does have two station memory for your favorite stations that work.
The only reason I did not give it a full five stars is because the memory and power level buttons are on the sides are not labeled from the front and I accidently push the wrong button sometimes and the price is a little high. I am real pleased with the unit and would recommend it to others if you use a unit like this a lot to justify the price.Read more ›
My first attempt was Monster's "iCarPlay Plus" FM Transmitter. It worked, but not very well. I had to double my stereo's regular listening volume, but of course this also raises the noise floor. This has the drawback of having to remember to turn down the volume every time you disconnect your iPod or get BLASTED.
Your best course of action (if you want the best possible sound quality) is to replace your car stereo with one that's already iPod compatible. I know, I don't want to either because I spent quite a bit on the one I have, but oh well. Don't bother if your stereo is a tape player. Those cassette tape adaptors with the wire coming out of it work great. They transmit good audio to the play head with no RFI (radio frequency interference).
