Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Now you can listen to your iPod Touch or iPhone music through your car stereo and quickly find the best FM station with the help of your iPod’s GPS system and location-based user feedback. TuneCast Auto Live combines ClearScan Technology with Belkin’s ClearScan Live iPod Touch/iPhone app to provide the best FM station recommendations wherever you drive.
The Only FM Transmitter with GPS-Assisted Station Locator
TuneCast Auto Live is the only FM transmitter with GPS-assisted scanning, for the best audio quality for your drive. The ClearScan Live app is available free through iTunes—just download and launch the app from your iPhone. You’ll get the best FM scanning technology at the push of a button, and station recommendations from other TuneCast Auto Live users in your area based on your GPS coordinates. You can also contribute to the quality of ClearScan Live's recommendations by rating how well stations work where you are.
Control at Your Fingertips
Control your FM transmission and music seamlessly from your iPhone screen—no need to fumble with separate FM buttons. ClearScan Live lets you display the current FM frequency and control the transmitter directly from your device.
Don’t worry if you don’t have an iPod Touch or iPhone—TuneCast Auto Live also works with iPod Nano and Classic. ClearScan Technology lets iPod users scan for the best FM frequency without an app. TuneCast Auto Live’s high-contrast backlit display lets you see the station clearly, and the tactile buttons make it easy to control.
TuneCast Auto Live also has two programmable preset buttons and a PRO setting for optimizing audio and boosting volume.
Arrive Fully Charged
The dock connector charges through your car's 12-volt lighter outlet to keep your device fully charged while playing.

Regarding volume, I agree with other reviewers who note that it's not very loud. I fixed this by two means. First, I adjusted the volume of my entire itunes library. To do so, click on "songs" and select all (open-apple + A). Right click, and select "get info." On the "Options" tab, slide the bar over to "100%." Now, each song will be louder, no matter where you're playing it from. Super easy!
On my iPod touch, I went to "Settings" and then "music" to get to the equalizer. A number of options listed will be louder than the default.
Bypassing Clear Scan by finding the best stations on my own and adjusting the volume took care of all my initial complaints. I love it now. It's certainly more cumbersome than having an aux jack, but this works well for me in my current car. I drive a 2007 Accord with no visible external antenna, and I have used it all over Wisconsin, Minnesota, northern Illinois, and northern Indiana. It doesn't work in Chicago because there are no open stations there, but it didn't take me long driving away from the city to use it again.
Certainly worth the money.
I would not make this purchase again.
A few weeks ago, the TuneCast developed a short in the wire that caused audio to drop out. I contacted Belkin about a replacement but their customer service phone number is absolutely no where to be found on their website. I decided to try "chat support" and that was a nightmare. The representative couldn't understand what a "short" was, and said I should contact Apple. ::bangs head on desk::
While it lasted, it worked great. However, if you are in need of a warranty replacement, best of luck--Belkin's customer service department was of no use or help. I am in the process of finding another FM transmitter for the iPhone made by a different company. I was not impressed with how long this device lasted--just over a year.
Dropped from 4/5 Stars to 2/5 stars for poor product reliability and quality. Your mileage may vary.
The tape deck in my car finally died so I needed another way to listen to iPhone through my car stereo.
Some observations: I bought this while knowing full well it was not going to sound as good as a full Aux-In port (which I lack) or Cassette adapter. However, the device works remarkably well with slight interference. Interference from overhead power lines seems to be the biggest annoyance. The only method I have found to avoid this type of interference is to place the transmitter (the little box in the center) as close to the center of the car (rather than under the radio), and close to the carpet.
Example: I have mine plugged into the cigarette lighter in the dash, the receiver box is resting on the floor somewhere between the seat and center console, and the phone sits in my cup holder.Read more ›
