Unfortunately my vacant channels are all on frequencies 94, 101-103. "Next best" channels are at 87, 93, 98 and 103. This unit will only transmit on "third best" channels in my area which means some noticeable static. Check out the vacant channels in your area. It may be worth more money to buy a transmitter which will broadcast on the best frequencies in your area.
The Scosche has been like a dream. I have thoroughly enjoyed its ability to drown out other local stations with very minor static interference (RFI). I was able to drive through Houston without needing to change the FM signal at all. Of course, finding a clear signal is always the best, but even if my driving enters an area where a broadcasting station is transmitting, the Scosche maintains signal.
I obtained this in order to safely listen to podcasts while driving. Podcasts are mostly vocal speaking without lots of music. The frequent pauses in speaking and the breaks between words allow for lots of opportunity to notice background interference with other FM signals. Yet, the Scosche has worked so well at minimizing interference that I am often very surprised to find a full radio station blaring through as soon as I turn the Scosche off.
The unit is primarily plastic, and this makes me cautious at its durability. Therefore, I am trying to be very careful with it. There are some 'features' that I have discovered that the unit will do, such as forward/reverse between songs, which the documentation does not cover. But because of the plastic design, I am fearful that frequent use of this would eventually cause something to break or snap.
There is also an input (1/8 inch jack) which allows for other non-iPod/iPhone4 devices to be connected.Read more ›
There is a slight hum in the background, but not significant.
A real difference for this would be having an internal rechargable battery, charged off a USB port. Now that would be perfect.
I subsequently bought the 'updated' model (exclusively for ipods) which now plugs into the base, thereby charging the player at the same time. First off, it was quite arduous finding a suitable frequency for this unit, and even when I did, it never held onto it for very long. During the 30%-35% of the time it worked properly, the sound was acceptable... but the rest of the time was interference, hissing, bleed-in from neighboring frequencies and, consequently, looking for free wavelengths and readjusting the transmitter.
What's more, the controller goes all over the place- and even though there's a mounting attachment, the "ideal" spot seems to vary constantly, and so is of limited use. This was in 3 three different vehicles, by the way.
After further research, I took a leap of faith as a result of good reviews from a handful of consumers on a "Radio shack/The Source" web-site (I found no other reviews on the web!).
It cost half as much as many other models (including the Belkin), but man, how nice is it when a device delivers on what it's supposed to do?
It completely took control over (and held) the very first frequency I tried and, save for between tracks, there was virtually NO background noise or static. The only 'quirk' I found was a boosting of bass which caused some distortion in the speakers. This was immediately remedied by lowering the ipod volume (which was on high), and compensating with the volume in the car.
Very happy with this purchase.
