Customer Reviews of Belkin TuneFM Radio Tuner for IPOD
I'm pretty happy with this tuner. I have used several cheaper ones in my 2006 Malibu and had problems with reception. Not with this transmitter. The signal is as good as can be expected for an FM tuner, which means it is OK, but not great. The optional power cord is mini-USB so you can use the transmitter almost anywhere and easily replace it.
Not what I expected11/30/2007
I couldn't wait to receive my Belkin TuneFM FM transmitter so I could enjoy listening to my iPod in my car. Maybe my expectations were too high. It was easy to set up and use but I am disappointed with the sound quality. I gave it to my wife who doesn't seem to mind the diminished audio quality and the occasional static interruptions. If you're looking for cd quality sound this is not the product for you.
It works fine but has static occasionally, most noticeable in traffic. The price is pretty good because it comes with a charger.
excellent value and works well1/10/2007
This product works good, strong enough to transmit from mosh car dashboards. The size is compact if you use radio interface which can run off of your IPod battery. But as a nice bonus it comes with a 12V adaptor that also charges your IPod. No other units in this price range come with a charger. Fits with ALL Ipods (except clip). If you set it to Japanese frequency mode you can tune it to 87.9 which is empty in most places in the US. Only complaint: FM sound is not as good / powerfull as some Griffin products. I had to keep the Belkin with Ipod on the dash of my car to avoid static.
This works really well, IF you can find a dead station to play it on, and if you don't move it too far away. I live in Chicago, and I can't find any stations that stay dead for more than a few minutes while driving around. The old fm transmitters used to play on 87.9, and that's almost always a dead station. Why did they take that frequency away from all the fm transmitters?? Anyway, I like the fact that you can switch this from Stereo to Mono (although I haven't noticed much of a difference in reception yet, I probably would if I were downtown or something), I like the size, the way it plugs in even if the ipod is in a case. I like the fact that you can use it without plugging it in, but if you have a car power adapter available you can also use it plugged in. I like the ability to scroll through all the stations, and the fact that you don't have to install any software. It does sound very good if you can get a clear signal. I think it just depends on where you live. If you live in a big city where just about every station is being used, I doubt you'll find any fm transmitter that works well (although the old griffin itrip that used 87.9 always worked well in chicago -- why did they take the power port off the top of the new ipods?)
Great FM Receiver8/1/2006
Pros: Charges iPod, Excellent reception on any frequency, nice design. Con: Somtimes when I drive by a certain car, I receive their radio tranmission (It's only happened a few times, and it happens for only a second or so).
