Charges the device while you listen to your music or even movies that you want to listen through your car speakers? no problems. I've used it with my iPhone 3g, 4, and 4s and my iPod touch and nano. It works great. I don't understand the other negative reviews. Great buy!!!

      Oh yea.

      This one works well with my gen6 iPod. Can automatically scan for a FM channel that is open or weak enough to allow your iPod to play back thru the car's rad This one works well with my gen6 iPod. Can automatically scan for a FM channel that is open or weak enough to allow your iPod to play back thru the car's radio. A great feature when driving a long distance. Cable length is enough for me to route it in my center console keeping the clutter down. The 30 pin connector is very similar to the standard Apple cable allowing easy plugging/un-plugging. Good sound quality. I see where the lowest reviews are related to iPhone usage. I do not have an iPhone so I can't relate to those issues. All I can say is that this one works well for me with my iPod.

      Acceptable but not perfect

I leave it in my car all day whe I've had this thing for almost 7 months now, and it works fine. However I have found some quirks: 1. Prone to overheating. I leave it in my car all day when I work and by the end of the day it's super toasty. I've had to rig up something to put it over the A/C vent to cool it off, and after a few minutes it's in working order. Now, I live in Arizona, where it's forgivable for devices to overheat in the car. But it overheats even when charging my iPhone! I need to have it over the A/C vent all the time for fear of it cutting out when I'm in the middle of jamming in traffic. 2. Certain songs are heavily distorted. I don't know if it's the way the songs are coded but it tends to be the same songs every time. All one needs to do to rectify this is unplug it, plug it back in, and press play. Kind of a pain. 3. It appears to be losing its ability to play clear music. Hi-hats and "s" sounds are accompanied by radio hiss, on any clear station. Not pretty and if it gets worse I'll probably be buying a new one. 4. As others have noted I wouldn't recommend buying this if you live in a heavy urban area. Whenever I go to Phoenix it starts to fizz out with all the radio noise and I can't use it. Overall, a fairly good device, but keep these things in mind if you're planning on making this purchase.

      "Do Not Leave In A Hot (Or Cool) Car"

      This FM Transmitter works pretty well. I used it a bit less than a year and it worked about the same as any of the 4 FM transmitters I've owned. It was no bette This FM Transmitter works pretty well. I used it a bit less than a year and it worked about the same as any of the 4 FM transmitters I've owned. It was no better and no worse than the other brands I've used - which ranged from very cheap to rather expensive. This model in particular was fairly easy to use and I liked the button that instantly scanned for clear stations. Of course, station selection and availability of a static-free station are the keys to a good listening experience on ANY transmitter. I'm sure the available partner ClearScan App would make station selection easier, which is a huge plus for new (and old) owners. When I was using this model on daily basis, I wasn't aware of the App (or it wasn't available yet). One BIG Warning: Leaving this device in my car completely fried the display. Which, surprisingly, didn't happen in the middle of summer. It was wintertime when the display went out. I do live in the southern US, but my car stays in the shade most of the time. I've read that constantly leaving these devices connected to the car (in general) can damage them, but mine was only plugged in during use, so I don't believe that was the issue. I was browsing for a new transmitter when I saw this one available and thought, "Wow, how did that earn a place in the Apple Store?" - but now, with the App, I guess the display being fried is inconsequential. But still, I feel like it could possibly be unreliable. If the display doesn't last, how long before the whole thing stops working?

      Works ok - but doesn't last long

      Been thru 2 of these in the last 2 years. sounds ok, but same issue - it starts falling apart after a few months. Kind of expensive to replace every 6-12 months Been thru 2 of these in the last 2 years. sounds ok, but same issue - it starts falling apart after a few months. Kind of expensive to replace every 6-12 months at $70 a piece. I'm going to look for a better one next time.
