TeckNet F27 FM transmitter
Enjoy the music stored on your Smartphone or iPod while you’re on the move with the TeckNet F27 FM Universal Transmitter. Great value, easy-to-use and featuring an extra USB port, this handy bit of kit will also charge your device while you drive.
Gone are the days when our glove compartments were bursting with of piles of CDs. Most of us now have a more convenient way of storing our tunes, but it’s still nice to hear them through our car’s stereo system. This compact transmitter allows you to do just that by using FM radio waves to send your favorite music from your mobile device to a nearby FM radio. Simply plug into the earphone socket then tune your FM radio to a clear frequency and enjoy your digital music collection wirelessly in rich, high quality sound.
Grooves on the Go
Listen to your music collection in your smartphone or MP3 player through your car’s stereo system to enjoy your favorite tunes on the go.
Handy additional USB port means you can charge another device while you’re driving, while the generous cable length allows back-seat passengers to select their music choice. (if you let them!)
Nice and Easy
Using the transmitter couldn’t be easier with a simple two-button operation and large LED channel display.

That being said, I was a bit skeptical of this product... but I was pleasantly surprised.
First of all, this FM transmitter comes in "Certified Frustration-Free Pacakaging," which made me laugh at first, but it's totally true. It comes in a small cardboard box that is enough to keep the item safe for shipping, but doesn't have all the crazy frill that electronics seem to come in these days (like those nearly impossible to open plastic packages that everyone loves so much). Not only is it easy to open, but it is certainly more environmentally friendly, and that is always a bonus.
It takes literally under a minute to get into the packaging AND have this thing set up. All you have to do is turn on your car, plug the transmitter into the cigarette lighter, plug the other end into your smart phone or MP3 player, set your car radio to an FM station where you hear nothing but static, and then set the adapter to the same station. The sound comes through immediately, and surprisingly clear. I tried this out in my newer (2011 BMW) car, and the sound quality difference between the transmitter and the USB plug and/or bluetooth available in my car is almost unnoticeable.
Aside from the product itself being great, the shipping was fast, and the price is affordable. I would certainly recommend this transmitter to anyone who is looking for the ability to play their music collection in their car, without having to make an expensive stereo upgrade. My experience with TeckNet thus far has been great (I bought a TeckNet web cam last year). They are a lesser known brand in the US, but they make great products at extremely affordable prices.

I was very pleased with my first TeckNet but it was recently mangled by a passenger (don't ask...) and was in the market for a replacement. I first went with a more recently-released transmitter, the Dodocool Universal FM Transmitter, in the hope that it would be more durable (OK, there are limits against "human intervention") and more importantly, capable of emitting as strong a signal, if not stronger.
After two weeks of use, I regularly ran into severe interference with the Dodocool on selected stretches to the point where it was completely unusable. I returned that and picked up my second TeckNet. I can confidently say that it emits a much stronger signal and I have not encountered any notable interference on the same stretches of road. I never thought that was possible when using the Dodocool but the TeckNet did it.
Highly recommended and will certainly buy another should the need arise.
Plugs straight in the cigarette lighter and turns on. Displays the frequency you're using which can be adjusted with the buttons. We usually use ones at the beginning or end of the range, rarely have to change it unless we go on a road trip. Available frequencies depend on where you live though, a bit of trial and error when you first purchase will be needed.
The broadcast range is a little short, for example in our car it cuts out if the back passengers are picking a song on the plugged in iPod, fine at the front though. No danger of other cars tuning into your terrible music either so that's a plus.
The cigarette lighter end has a USB slot too so you can charge your device while it's being used, essential feature really.
As for quality, it depends on interference really but it sounds fine when nothing is on the frequency. It's quieter than the radio though so remember to turn the volume down when switching back to radio
What a very handy device. I'm a part time musician, I often listen to my own music along with musician friends music that we share between us. This is an ideal way to transmit the music on my phone (or tablet) onto my car radio, I can connect the phone to the USB charge socket on the transmitter to keep my phone battery fully charged.
Just plug the unit into the cigarette lighter in your car, plug the other end into your phone, tablet or whatever you wish. Set the FM frequency that you wish to use to communicate with your radio (ensure it's free from other signals before using), then set your car radio to the same frequency & voila you should be able to hear all the music that's played on or through your tablet or phone. You will probably have to have your car ignition switched on as most cars cut the power to the cigarette lighter when switched off.
I have a fairly elderly radio in my car which doesn't have Bluetooth so this FM transmitter is ideal for me. Once my car radio was tuned to the selected frequency, there it was, all my music playing through my radio. I am most impressed with the sound quality too, crisp & clear with no interference whatsoever. One note to anyone buying this - be aware that your phone volume also affects the volume of the music transmitted to your radio, so if you find you are having to turn your radio up then look to see if your phone volume is high enough?
The unit looks to be well built, there is nothing cheap about this at all apart from the price. The FM transmitter works faultlessly driving around locally, I haven't been on any long journeys with it yet but I have no reason to think it will perform any less than it does now. Do ensure you use a good quality shielded charge cable for your phone to ensure you don't get any interference from it.
A very good product for the price, I wish I had bought one of these ages ago, which would have saved me a lot of money wasted on burning my music to CD-Rs.
I then plugged the unit into my cig lighter socket, then used the arrows on the transmitter unit to go to 92.3 and that's it. Now I can play 6 Music with the minimum of fuss, and put off the purchase of the £150+ Parrot for a bit longer...
Ok, the sound level isn't nearly as high as, say, CD output, but it's sufficient with the volume almost up to the top. The clarity is good, and frankly, for £9 it's perfectly fine. So far I haven't had any interference from other stations.
It would have been nice to have some sort of clip to hold the transmitter body, because it sort of lies there around the gearstick, which is not ideal, but maybe I will be able to run it somewhere inconspicuous. It also doesn't help that the cig lighter in my A4 is back at the rear of the console, rather than under the dashboard on most other cars. Obviously that's not the fault of the transmitter !!
All in all, I recommend it.
Simply tune your radio to an unused FM signal, plug the device into your cigarette lighter (12v socket - showing my age now) and tune it to the same frequency. Plug it into your phone's headphone socket and start playing your music and it works! The manual tuning is easy as it increments one step at a time so easy to get exactly right. You can then store the frequency as a channel on your radio.
I've tried it with music stored on the phone itself, Spotify and Amazon Music and all work well. You could even pick up calls on it, but obviously have to speak into the phone itself, so it's not a complete substitute for hands free.
It's neat, has a reassuring blue indicator light to show it's working and a handy USB slot so that you can keep your phone charged too. If you haven't got bluetooth, this is a nice, cheap alternative and ideal for listening to music in the car.
It's very small, taking up very little space, but the LED display is clear and legible. The transmitter is incredibly easy to use; it's simply a case of matching the frequency of the device with the frequency of an unused radio station frequency... and that's it! With only 2 buttons, one for scrolling up and the other down, you can't really go wrong with it either. The male plug from the transmitter acts as an aux lead that plugs into your phone, mp3 player or Walkman, enabling you to enjoy your music collection through your car stereo.
I have not noticed any interference when using the transmitter and I have not been able to discern any noticable decrease in audio quality when compared with a cd played in the head unit. It's a wonderful little device that has given me the joy of being able to use my mp3 player in my car again. I'm very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend it.
The FM transmitter simply plugs into the 12v Cigarette port in the car and the AUX plugs into the audio socket on the device. The user then chooses a frequency that is not being broadcasted on, one with only static and then uses the arrow buttons on the FM transmitter to select that frequency on the display. Once the frequency is selected and the car radio is tuned into that frequency, whatever song you play on your device will be played through the radio.
The sound quality is good and clear from the FM transmitter and it is very easy to use. Another bonus feature is that of a USB Port on the 12v plug, this allows you to charge your device whilst playing music and this comes in handy on long distance journeys.
I would recommend this FM transmitter to anybody who does not have any built in functions to connect media devices to their car, you will not be disappointed with the sound quality and the ease of use of this device
I have another FM transmitter which is truly wireless and plugs into the headphones jack of my phone. I personally prefer this wireless set up as there are no wires around my dashboard and having the potential to interfere with my driving experience. This offsets the negative of needing to charge it up every week.
- Good reception
- It has a USB port built into the cigarette charger allowing you to charge other devices when using the FM transmitter
- If your not using the FM transmitter but it is still plugged in, it will turn itself off after 1 minute
- No battery's to worry about charging
- Not truly wireless
Found it really simple to setup - Plug it into the cigarette lighter socket in the car. Plug the 3.5mm jack lead into the headphone socket on my phone. Tune the car radio to the frequency shown on the Teknet's little screen. Then whatever you play on your phone is played through the car's amp and speakers.
Allows me to listen to radio stations from all over the world, Amazon music, MP3s...whatever the phone is capable of.
It even has a pass-through USB socket on it so you can charge your phone while it is in use.
It's small and discreet, easy to use and works perfectly for what I wanted it for. Sound quality is fine - I'm not a hi-fi buff but this is as good as playing CDs on the car's stereo - and it doesn't suffer from fade or static when playing music.
This item has saved me replacing the amplifier for the radio which is in a typically Italian location awkward as heck. I simply use Digital radio on my phone mounted in the car. Sorted for less than a KFC family feast.
The FM transmitter arrived quickly and well packed. Instructions were very easy to follow and I was set up in no time! This neat little device now allows me to play music stored in my phone or play tracks from installed apps like Youtube/Spotify. Sound quality is superb.
The device itself is well crafted and features an extra USB port so you can charge your phone/ipad etc whilst on the go.
I'm extremely happy with my purchase since it saved me forking out for a new car stereo!
The principle of the unit is that it transmits the audio from your phone as a radio signal that is picked up by your car's radio receiver. It works by plugging in to your cigarette power socket at one end and the headphone socket of your mobile phone at the other. In the middle is a small radio transmitter that broadcasts the audio output from your phone on a frequency that you choose during setup. You tune your car radio to that same frequency (again during setup) and save it to one of your radio's preset buttons (like saving any other radio station). Then whenever you want to listen to music on your phone, you just press the preset button on your radio and listen away.
The sound quality is good and, as other reviewers have noted, the sound volume needs increasing slightly when using the unit as compared with other radio stations. I have given the gadget 4 stars because it does the job effectively and at less than £9 it's a bargain.
One area of improvement would be to be have a USB connection between the power cable and cigarette lighter power plug so that the power cable can be plugged into any other USB power source. I already have a 3-way USB power adaptor in my car (which I use to charge my phone and another device), so I would have liked to be able to plug the TeckNet gadget in to that adaptor too.
