Instead of writing a full review about the item, I'm just going to give you my 'Opinion' of this FM Transmitter, and make a recommendation based on my preferred alternative at the end of the review, the FlexSmart X2.
First, immediately after ordering it, the selling contacted me to inform me that there was an issue with inventory, and wanted to know if I would be interested in either a refund or replacement of the similar version (the blue one). So I give the seller a positive review for contacting me immediately with an issue like this, and they shipped a replacememt which arrived sooner than expected!
Although it was brand new, the quality of this item was very cheaply made, but what would you expect for only paying $10-15 for it? The side buttons (mainly the play/pause and fast forward/rewind buttons) were already loose, and appeared as though they would fall off. But they still work correctly, and do not interfere with playback.
It comes with the FM Transmitter, a remote (battery included), a short headphone cable to plug in your phone or MP3 device, and a Micro-USB cable to either charge or connect a device.
However, when using my iPhone 5s cable, it not only displays a message on my phone saying the device it not compatible, but it doesn't allow my phone to charge. This was pretty disappointing, causing me to have to invest in an adapter so that I can plug & charge my phone with a separate 12v plug into the same outlet in my car.
One of the reasons I bought this, unlike the FlexSmart X2, it had a small LED display to show what track you're on, and the track information. Unfortunately, the display is WAY to small to read it, especially during the day where it's even more difficult just to see if you're tuned to the right station for it to transmit to the a stereo.
For the red version (which is what I own), you would think they would have set a black background to allow a clearer display for the red letters and numbers... But instead, the background has a red tint, making it that much more difficult to read the display. And the display itself it extremely small (as you can see in the pictures I've uploaded). This makes me nervous trying to stair at the display and read what it says while driving, so I have to wait until I stop in order to look and whatever I'm trying to read.
CONTROLS & FUCTIONS:
There are very few buttons to allow you to operate this transmitter. Aside from the play, fast forward & rewind, and dial (volume), there are 2 blank buttons that you use to shuffle through the different functions.
Unlike the FlexSmart, the manual is required to figure out how to change the frequency to the proper radio station, as well as switching between different sources; including FM Radio, External device (phone or MP3 player), or memory card and USB device.
SOURCES & INPUT:
Currently, since it does not allow an connection between my iPhone and the device, I use a memory card and USB stick to play all my music, which is nice because I'm able to upload well over 1000+ songs per card/stick!
However, another drawback is the fact that it seems to shuffle through the MP3 list by alphabetical order, rather than by folder, track set, or playlist order.
When using a memory card or USB stick, it takes a long time to get to a specific track, having to move one track at a time instead of pressing the fast forward button to rapidly skip to the track much faster. It seems to take almost a second to change from track to track, and even longer when I'm trying to get to track 20 (for example).
Is nice as the remote it, it would be nicer if the remote had numbers on it so that I can simy type in whatever track number o want to skip to, since it doesn't want to play the particular order I set the playlist with!
FLAWS & DRAWBACKS:
Although I've already listed some of the pros and cons of this item, I'm going to repost them and add a few extras.
(1) As nice as it was suppose to be with having a display, the display is way too small to read, and the background color being the same as the text makes it even more difficult to read the display.
(2) Changing inputs and sources is very difficult and confusing with the manual. But it's even more disappointing having to rely only on memory cards and USB sticks to listen to music, without investing even more money in an MP3 player since my iPhone is not compatible (unless plugged in via headphone jack/cable).
(3) The remote should have number bottoms to allow the user to type in a specific track number or radio station frequency, since it plays MP3s based on alphabetical order instead of playlist order you assigned, and changing from track to track or station to station (for example, from 87.7 to 105.7) takes forever!
For the price, it's not a bad device. Although very cheaply made, it does the job! If you don't have an aftermarket stereo, your CD player is broken or doesn't have a USB input, then this little device is a great alternative; simply set your car stereo station to the same station on the fm transmitter, and stream thousands of songs from your memory/USB stick or MP3 device!
GOgroove FlexSmart X2:
For a few extra dollars (assuming you don't have enough money to invest in a $50-80 aftermarket stereo with Bluetooth capatibility or USB/headphone input), I would highly recommend investing towards the FlexSmart X2!
The FlexSmart X2 has the same features, shy of a display to see what track you're on, but also has Bluetorh capability and is iPhone friendly! The drawback to the FlexSmart X2 is that is tends to dip or lose the bend when you set it in a particular angle for you to see, requiring you constantly readjust it. However, with a little brainstorming and finding a way to keep it positioned correctly, it is a much more useful device than the AMZDEAL Car Kit. But that doesn't mean that the AMZDEAL Car Kit isn't worth the few dollars investment to transmitt audio from a memory stick or MP3 device to your car radio!
For the price, you're getting cheap quality,
but a cheap alternative to endless music! Again, I highly recommend the FlexSmart X2, but this is a great alternative or a secondary device if you have multiple vehicle like myself, and don't have the money to invest in an expensive aftermarket stereo with all of the same features, and then some!
One big minus though is that even though it swivels, it does not bend. In the process of trying to get it to bend like in the photo, it broke, quite easily. I slathered on a bunch of Locktight super glue and it's at least back in one piece, but now it doesn't even swivel.
I bought this for the purpose of playing my favorite tunes from a USB drive to listen to while driving. While driving around town, the selected station fades in and out terribly. Upon my return home, I threw it in the trash. It ships directly from China so be prepared to wait if you decide to order one.
When it did briefly work, I couldn't figure out how to set the device to shuffle songs, it seemed to pick a song at random from the SD card I was using and then play sequentially from there. The two long buttons around the screen change the FM transmitter frequency, pressing in on the volume knob just turns the device off, and holding down the play/pause button for a moment brings up a menu that's 99% in Chinese (seems to have options for an equalizer in there). The screen is very small and hard to read from a distance so depending on where your power outlet is at you might not be able to easily read the display while driving.
My only complaints are that it is kinda bulky and the display is hard to read. Once you find yourself a good station, you don't really need to look at the display again unless you're travelling.
Here's a tip about FM transmitters - those $1 - $5 are absolutely junk. You need to pay at least $10 for a decent one but even then, some of them are sketch and it doesn't matter if you paid $10 or $50 for it. Once you hit that $10 mark, they are all the same. Good news is, this one is even LESS than $10 but the first one I bought like this was $13!!

Very poor quality.
My previous transmitter did not produce any background noise.
