The SoundFly VIEW Bluetooth FM Transmitter from Satechi is a car gadget for those of us that are not fortunate enough to own a Bluetooth enabled vehicle (like my 2006 Mazda 3). Here at The Gadgeteer, we’ve reviewed Bluetooth speakerphones before and we’ve reviewed FM transmitters. But I think this might be the first Bluetooth FM transmitter […]
Handsfree/Bluetooth call phone device AND an FM transmitter that can handle any MP3 player, SD.MMC cards, and USB thumbdrives? PLUS 2 remotes- a ‘normal’ one and one for the steering wheel? All this and cool blue LED lights, too? The Merconnet Bluetooth Car Kit certainly aims high, and with Julie’s great review of the Merconnet Bluetooth […]
Unless your car has an integrated iPod / iPhone dock, pretty much the only other ways to listen to tunes through your vehicle’s speakers is with a line-in connector or an FM transmitter. Line-in connectors mean cables. FM transmitters are wireless. Most people probably won’t argue with me when I say that anything wireless is […]
Griffin has a large selection of FM transmitters for iPods and iPhones, but today I want to tell you about their latest iTrip model. It’s the iTrip Universal. In addition to iPods / iPhones, this FM transmitter will also work with any audio device that has a standard sized earphone jack.
If you’re ever in the market for an FM transmitter, Merconnet is definitely the place to shop for one. We’ve reviewed quite a few of their products over the years and I have another one for you today that has some extra goodies built into it…
The Digiana AudiaX DGT-301 FM transmitter from Merconnet is one of the better audio transmitters on the market these days. It has the ability to scan for the best available clear frequencies in your area, so you’ll get the best audio possible.
A couple of years ago, Julie did a review on the Anydrive Car MP3 and FM Modulator from Merconnet. In case you don’t remember, or never read the review, the device allowed you to plug in your USB flash memory storage apparatus and wirelessly broadcast the output to a FM radio.
I recently opened my mailbox to find a package from a company named ABT
(Advanced Bridging Technologies). Opening the box revealed 3 iPod accessories. One specifically for the Apple Nano and two for any iPod with a docking connector. I’ve had a chance to put each of these products through some good old gadgeteer testing and will share my experiences with you.
Have you ever noticed that a lot of FM transmitters on the
market these days, don’t blend in very well with the interior of
most vehicles. Their design tends to be too flashy or wacky for my
personal taste. I don’t know about you, but I tend to prefer that
my vehicle accessories look more like OEM parts than something that
came from the bargain bin of AutoZone. That’s why I was pretty
amazed when I came home the other day to find a package from
Speck Products. Inside
was the MobileTune FM Transmitter for the Apple iPod.
FM Transmitters for digital music players are nothing new, but today I am going to take a look at one of the smallest and least obtrusive models I have seen thus far – the XtremeMac AirPlay²
I am going to sound like a broken record when I say (yet again)
that the thing I enjoy most about iPod ownership is that so many
accessories are custom made to fit this digital music player.
Granted, I bought my 4th generation model right before the latest
incarnation, the iPod Video was introduced, but there are still
plenty of accessory manufacturers making goodies that will fit my
particular iPod. Today I am going to tell you about an iPod
accessory that has quickly become a personal favorite, the Macally
Over the years I have reviewed quite a few FM transmitters that were compatible with just about any portable music player. But today I am going to take a look at my first FM transmitter made to complement all versions of the Apple iPod specifically. Conveniently enough, this transmitter will also work with any audio […]
Remember my review of Bluetake’s i-PHONO mini BT450Rx Bluetooth stereo headphones? No? Ok, go read it here first and then come back to read this review of the BT450Tx. The BT450Tx is an accessory to the BT450Rx. Those of you with a mild level of geekiness should be clued in that this is a transmitter […]
Finding the most convenient way to listen to the tunes on your Apple iPod, while in your vehicle can sometimes be a daunting task. Do you lay it beside you on the seat and route the audio through your car stereo using a cassette adapter? Or maybe you use a separate FM transmitter like the […]
Product Requirements: An FM Radio and an audio source with a 3.5mm headphone jack, one AA battery (included) It’s the age old dilemma – how to best listen to one’s music in the car, when said music is all contained on a player that is not hard-wired to the auto’s sound system. One of the […]
Product Requirements: An audio device with a headphone jack and a stereo with an FM receiver, one AAA battery Last year I favorably reviewed the Digiana Wireless Audio Portable FM Linker, a FM transmitter that could play content from audio devices through an FM station of the user’s choosing. This year, Merconnet is offering a […]
We’ve reviewed quite a few FM transmitters here on The Gadgeteer. But none as simple as the ZUKZ FM Transmitter from Crayton Electronics. This product uses the cigarette lighter socket in your vehicle for power, so you don’t have to worry about batteries. It has one LED, but no switches or buttons. To use […]
Ok gadgeteers, pack your bags and get ready to call shotgun, because we’re going on a road trip! Well… ok, we’re not really going anywhere… But if we were, you’d want to be prepared for endless hours driving, wouldn’t you? I don’t know about all of you, but as soon as I start up […]
Not counting talk show broadcasts, how many of you still enjoy listening to your tunes via FM radio? Since I purchased my iPod, I rarely listen to the radio anymore. Besides the fact that they play commercials and the same lame songs over and over again, FM radio is just blah when you compare […]
Product Requirements: Device: Versions available for original and current iPod models Oh iPod, how do I love thee, let me count the ways… I listen to you in the morning, and I listen to you at night. I listen to you at my desk while working, the treadmill while exercising, and on an airplane while […]
Product Requirements: Device: An audio device with a 3.5mm stereo headset jack I have a satellite radio receiver installed in my vehicle, but there are still times when I want to listen to the MP3s I have stored on my PDA. My new truck (I just got a 2003 Harley Davidson edition F-150) does not […]
