If you're looking for a great and simple transmitter that has very little issue, this would be it.
I'd done a little bit of research on other fm transmitters on amazon and finally came across IRiver's AFT 100 Mobile FM Transmitter. Having not been particularly impressed with the reviews of the Belkin and iRock models, this seemed to be a better gamble than the rest. I also liked the concept of being the DJ of your own radio station, so I figured I'd throw my cash into the ring and purchase it. Since the purchase just 4-5 days ago, I have absolutely NO REGRETS about buying it. It works extremely well in a Lexus and a Taurus, fits in both power/AC outlets, and most of all works. As far as static goes, as the reviewer above said, the stronger radio stations in your area can be overridden but with more static as you turn up the volume (turn up the volume on your car and leave your volume on your mp3 player set to a certain level btw). The weaker stations allow you to turn up the volume on your car to a greater level and with virtually zero static. I live in Houston and the Iriver FM Transmitter definitely impressed me with all the frequences in a city the size of Houston.
The bottom line is, if your looking for a great FM Transmitter and are tired of transmitters that don't work or have limited channel memory, then your search is over. Pick this product up today and you won't regret it!
UPDATED Review (1-24-09):
This was long overdue for an update as I stopped using it over 3 years ago. My rating changes from a 5 star to 3 stars. I don't know if it was the hot Houston summer at the time or not, but I sent it in once after it stopped working after a few days and then RETURNED that one after it quite working for about a week. Definitely disappointed with this and since then I've gotten the CA-745 charger to see if it does the same thing.
3 stars for the quality of the sound and static-free music when it worked, 2 stars off for such a high-priced and well-reviewed device - it definitely let me down.
That being said I loved this thing, I used it all the time, and it actually does sound good on unused frequencies, wow 10 years... I remember moving state and taking it back from my relative who was borrowing it and the look on their face was clear upset lol, of course it was mine though what could they say... I am picturing the bag it's sitting in in the other room right now...
I drive a 04 Mazda RX-8, and it has no tape player, or an auxillary input. The only choice was to use an FM transmitter.
On a good note, it does its job, and it does it relatively well. The audio clarity was really good, and I am an audio buff myself. The only drawback is that it you still can hear some static beneath the music if its quiet. For example, if you play Alicia Key's "If I Aint Got You", her piano introduction is also accompanied by some slight static, but this is when it is a quiet part of the song.
The bad thing is that, well its FM. It isnt going to be as clear as a CD, but if you have no choice...you have no choice. Another drawback is that you have to fiddle with you mp3 player so you can find a good balance of mp3 volume, and your car's volume. Once you find that balance, you'll never touch it again. But one more thing, the bass isnt all that swell, but its something you can probably live with.
SOME HELPFUL TIPS!
-A LOT of people are moaning about the static (I even touched on it above), but the truth of the matter is that if your driving 70 MPH on the freeway, chances are VERY VERY slim that you'll hear static. The car's noise, on top of the road, on top of the rattling that goes on while your driving will eliminate the static noise...TRUST ME!
-A good way to broadcast the music is that I found that if you choose a station that has slight static, and slight music, set that to your fm tunner. I've gotten better results tunning my iRiver to a station that is half and half
-Another thing is that it DOES shut off by itself. This is a smart feature that iRiver implemented because it wont kill your car's batter if you leave it on accedentally. BUT if you, say, get a phone call, and pause your music and more than 30 seconds passed by, the thing will shut off, and then you hear that station that was half static and half music with your car's volume at like 75%...Then you have to unplug it, and plug it back in...a small drawback but it is okay by my book.
-Place it as close to your antenna as possible. Like for my car, my antenna is built into the rear windsheild. When I plugged the iRiver to my second cigarette adapter which is closer to my rear windshield, I got better reception.
-The mp3 player that it is attatched to is the antenna on the device, again, the closer it is to the antenna, the better the quality of the sound
-I tunned it to one station driving from Los Angeles CA, to Orange County CA (Irvine actually), and it worked very, very well. It was 91.9 FM
Listen, if you have a cassete player, then chances are your better off with a Cassete adapter. This iRiver AFT-100 does a really swell job at being an FM tuner, b/c it does have the power to outpower other stations, but remember it is ONLY FM QUALITY...if not a tad lower.
This was an honest review of the AFT-100 and I hope that I have helped.
