Cut through the static with ClearScan--your TuneCast will automatically (and quickly) scan the FM spectrum to find a clear frequency at the push of a button. Avoid the frustration of manually finding a clear FM station. When find a couple of favorites, store them with the two programmable preset buttons.

The TuneCast's high-contrast backlit display provides high visibility, and its small size offers flexibility in placement. The device is powered by your car's cigarette lighter/power outlet, and it charges your iPod while you enjoy your music.

The included PRO setting can make your music sound louder and fuller by decreasing the amount of attenuation in the audio signal. Professional FM stations use dynamic compression to make music louder and fuller while limiting distortion. You can use the three PRO settings on your TuneCast Auto to add dynamic compression to your audio, thereby optimizing audio and boosting volume.

After reading lots of reviews on this, I had expected a good product. It was awful. When I pressed the autoscan button, it would scan to stations that were already in use, or partially in use. It rarely scanned to empty stations. I used to have a Kensington digital FM transmitter, and when I tuned to my go-to station, it would work no problem, no static at all. When I tried that same station with the Belkin, I heard static non-stop, along with my music. The only time I heard no static was when I went through a tunnel (obviously, since there's no radio station to interfere). I'm going back to my Kensington - very disappointed with this Belkin model. Note: I live in Fairfield County, and used this on the way to NYC. Maybe it would work better in other areas, but around here, it was terrible.

I bought this for my girlfriend and we were severely disappointed. She has a Nissan Murano (with the antenna in the front) and I could not find a clear station after cycling through the entire FM spectrum.

My complaints are completely inline with other folks:
* The signal strength is just too weak to get a clear, consistent audio experience. If you touch or move the unit around, you are sure to hear static.
* The auto tuner is horrible. Many times it seems to randomly pick a station. Sometimes with a signal strength so strong, I'm unable to hear anything being broadcast by the Belkin unit
* The iPhone complains about this not being a compatible device, although it does charge the phone (both first-gen and 3G) and transmit audio.

This unit is going back to the store today. Not what I expected from Belkin.

I bought this because I've saw mixed reviews on the iPhone car chargers. The charging works fine..although there were a few times when the iPhone would display "this product is not designed for the iphone,...do you want to switch to airplane mode?".

The FM reception is pretty choppy. If you can secure a clear station...I'd suggest you stick with that one. There is some static at times.

I'm not sure if I'd recommend this. If you're in an area where there's not a lot of FM stations..it may work well.

Verified Purchase
I live in Central Massachusetts, and recently upgraded from and iPhone to an iPhone 3G. I had been using a Monster iCarplay, and found that while it allowed me to play music from my 3G it no longer charged the device during use. I read the reviews for the Belkin TuneCast, and was skeptical. I love the Monster device, and was having a hard time finding something comparable so I decided to give it a shot. The bottom line, this device does exactly what it says it does. It allows me to play music from my 3G's iPod over my car radio, charges, and even allows me to keep the phone enabled without interference. I have two stations set using the memory buttons that seem to work the best with the device. I found that the "ClearScan" seems to mostly choose stations at random, and these are not always the clearest. I've found that if you place the tuner portion of the Belkin closer to the actual radio, it works much better, so I have applied it directly to a panel on my dash using sticky-back Velcro. HD radio this is not. If you want crystal clear sound with no static then install a stereo that directly links your iPod with it. There's some static, and sometimes you need to use a different channel, but for a device this affordable, that broadcasts over FM radio waves, I am satisfied with the product, and the sound.

I really should have read these reviews first. I will be returning this product.

In brief, the pros: Solid construction, well made unit. Should last a long time. Easy to use and get working.

Cons:

Terrible audio quality. I had to find a new FM channel nearly every day, sometimes many times a day. Even when I did find a decently clear channel there was still a background of static and noise and the audio quality from the ipod was inferior to that of even regular radio channels.

Even tho it says made for the iphone when I plug it into my iphone I get the warning "this accessory is not compatible with the iphone" - it does seem to work ok and charge the unit but... i sure hate seeing that message. Makes me think I am doing something wrong by using it.

If i move the ipod around to change songs or such, I'll get bursts of static on the radio! What is this 1970 technology?

Too expensive for the poor audio quality - if it was $19.99 I might keep it as a back up or for when I am in a friends car or a rental car. For $70 this is going back immediately.

I was very disappointed when I discovered that my 3G iPhone did not work with my Kensington. I opted for the Belkin because at the time it was the only available FM tuner product. I purchased and first used the Belkin TuneCast in Ann Arbor and the metro Detroit area. Unfortunately Ann Arbor/Detroit has almost no free FM spots on the dial. The TuneCast identified some free stations but did not always seem to work. Often I found myself manually looking for stations. As for clarity I can say that the Belkin worked fine as long as there were no other radio stations in the vicinity. I'm fortunate as I live in Europe where there are no where near as many radio station as in the US. My Belkin works perfectly here producing very clear and nice sound. If you plan on using the Belkin TuneCast in an area that does not have too many radio stations, you might want to give the TuneCast a try.
