Best FM transmitter for my HTC Evo,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Bluetooth Wireless In-Car FM Transmitter with USB Charging , Music Control and Hands-Free Calling - Works with Apple , Samsung , HTC , LG , Sony & More Smartphones , Tablets , MP3 Players (Electronics)
When I got the HTC Evo back at the beginning of June I just went to Wal Mart and picked up an FM transmitter there for 50 dollars, but it would only transmit to the radio but not charge the phone. For anyone who has an Evo, you know that the battery life is not good. Plus it had a so much excess wiring. I returned it and bought this off of amazon and it is amazing. It paired within 10 seconds and transmits with barely noticeable no static, transmits far better than the 50 dollar thing I got from Wal-Mart or the FM transmitter I had for my iphone. I put my phone onto pandora, plug in the charger and set it down and if a song comes up I want to skip, I can just hit the forward button on the flexSmart unit which can be easily adjusted to any position for your hand.
I love this thing, its not obtrusive, theres not a ton of excess wiring, just the gooseneck and if you want to charge it simultaneously you can just plug it into the usb port with the included 6 inch wire or use your own. The calls come in clear and great too, just as good as any bluetooth headset.
I highly recommend this if you dont have an auxiliary port in your car stereo, I was considering getting the gomadic one which is only 5 dollars cheapers, but has so much more wiring and the typical inconvenient control module built into the wiring. I'm really glad I got this one, I'm about to drive from DC to Portland and this thing will make the trip much more bearable and its not an eye sore in the car.

Does this shut the radio when using GPS? Can you hear it through the stereo speakers?

It works with any device that can connect to blue-tooth devices. You just have to look at your device to see if it does or not. All smartphones do these days...not sure about tablets.

Thanks for the review. I am considering buying this device. I am concerned
a. if the controls on the phone actually work while the bluetooth is in place.
b. if the IDE data of the mp3 songs is shown in the display.
Could you please help me out with these concerns.

follows function of the phone i.e. if the phone fades the music then the device will transmit that effect, the fade in fade out is not this device's prerogative

Probably a stupid question but does it transmit in stereo? I have looked at many of these but none specifically say they transmit in stereo.

@Jonathan Lin: I just bought one and am looking at comments here to help me set it up properly. One thing I noticed is that it does not go below 88.1. I was trying to set it to the first station on the dial and it would not go there.
