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...
In my case, they do not make a proper fitting stereo to fit my car. So I opted to try this FM transmitter. Just plug into the lighter and your IPod. Turn your car radio and your transmitter to the same station and there you go. All your favorite music running through your car radio. No talking, no commercials.
You might want to program three blank stations into the transmitter, like-wise for your car radio. That will give you more choices, as some radio stations will bleed into your transmitter setting. That is true of any transmitter of this type. Just flip the station and you are in the clear again.
I have tried several variations of the FM transmitters before finally arriving at this one. I highly recommend this transmitter to anyone for a low tech upgrade to your vehicle stereo system.
I bought this FM transmitter for my Zen Vision:M in June '06. I have a 2000 Honda Accord which has a built-in-antenna in the rear window. The transmitter was powerful enough to send a signal to the rear of the vehicle for a smooth/seemless operation. Sound was surprisingly good considering it is an FM transmitter. I heard stories that FM transmitters produce poor sound. This unit does not fall into that category at all. The unit does allow you to select which channel you want, not 3 pre-selected channels as some other FM transmitters do. That is a big plus for the iRiver AFT 100 in my book.
The unit does have a few slight downfalls.
1) At higher volumes, distortion can be an issue as would be expected.
2) The auto power-off function is great except for when the volume is too low and the transmitter turns off, but only if the volume is really low. The only way to turn the unit back on is to unplug or remove power to the unit, then restore power again.
3) The blue back-lite screen bothered me a little at night being my Accord doesn't have any blue lights on the dash, but that may just be me being picky.
4) Interference can be a issue if you live in a heavily populated radio station area or travel alot also which should be expected, but in the iRiver's defense, it was strong enough to over take some radio station's signal, so this really wasn't an issue where I live. Changing the channel was very simple and easy to do.
I did end up purchasing an Aux-Input component that plugged into the CD changer's jack on the rear of my OEM radio which allowed me to plug directly into my radio for crystal clear sound and allowed me to take away the iRiver AFT 100's wire cable. This move did produce a clearer sound at higher volumes, but at lower volumes, the iRiver AFT 100 is just as clear as the Aux-input.
Overall, I highly recommend the unit to anyone who can't use Aux-inputs or that does not want to remove the radio for installation. Using the iRiver AFT 100 is a very quick and easy way to use ANY Mp3 player with a 3.5mm Headphone jack in their vehicle with very decent sound.
I highly recommend this unit if a FM transmitter is being considered for use.
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.
