I got this last night (Monday November 4th, 2007 @ 2:00AM)

1st.
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.

2nd.
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

3rd.
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.

4th.
The unit does a good job at charging your iPod.

5th.
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.)

6th.
I like the arm that the unite rests on, stiff but very flexible.

I recently purchased this unit as a set with a wall charger at Costco for $[...]. I have used three other units from Belkin TuneCast, Kensington 33169 Digital FM Radio and Transmitter for iPods, and XtremeMac AirPlay. The Airplay was for the original remote connector and worked good on my iPod Photo until my daughter broke it on a road trip. I bought the Kensington at a special price and it was not as powerful and therefore did not work as well. The Belkin TuneCast was a joke, but was universal since it used a 1/8" male connector.

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.

While ClearScan did not the absolute best channels for me to use, the product worked just fine. I was able to quickly find 3 or 4 channels that work very well and get no static through them. The audio quality is very good with rare static sounds cming through. Using the Pro1 and Pro2 sound settings really are the most helpful features...they can make the audio quality even better and more helpful than the QuickScan.

FM Transmitters seem to be a "hit or miss" affair. It really depends on which one you buy, where you live, and what brand of car stereo you have. I have an older middle/high end Clarion CD player. I bought the "Tunebase" and tried several times across four days to get it to work with no success. I'm not one to ignore the instruction manual, but found other's who reviewed it were correct. There are indeed procedures left out of the manual. On the useless yet positive side, its attractive and looks well made. I think if you live in a less radio congested area, you'll be fairly happy with this unit.

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).
