Rated 2 out of 5 by from After reading the write up here, this seemed a really good product,so went to my local MAPLIN and brought one.... oh dear, what a mistake...the unit is nice and small,but the build quality is poor, and sound quality is even worse...it's really, really bad - when the phone rings the voice reading the number out is very, very quiet through the radio, and there's so much interference from somewhere (would think it's the bluetooth) you can't hear what's being said. With the volume control only going to 16, that's it! Hasten to say, i took it back and swapped it for another make which is much better - which is a shame really, as theis had all the makings of an excellent product! Another point to note, is you have to change the radio frequency manually - which maybe a pain if you travel long distances, and you have RDS on your radio which changes the frequency of the radio station you are listening to! moderator note: virtually every FM transmitter device on the market manually set to a frequency, some interference sadly is something that can happen as this is the nature of FM transmission

Rated 2 out of 5 by from excited, just what I wanted at the right price brilliant idea and concept, seemed well built, however just didn't quite work fully as it should using a Sony Xperia Arch on android gingerbread had very poor reception, and could not make calls on as kept cutting out, also you could pause a track streamed by A2DP, but the play pause button would not restart it. Also when you skipped top the next track, it would play 4 seconds, then stop, you had to restart the track on the phone, do this more than 3 times, and it dropped the bluetooth connection altogether, forcing you to make a new connection manually Maplins gave me a replacement unit to try, the blutooth phone was much better, but still the same issues with music streaming by A2DP it cannot read your phones address book, you have to copy an address at a time manually to the device. In the end i returned it for a refund a bit more development and testing to get this a fully working unit and I will happily buy one again when its working properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sound quality is exceedingly poor. Phone directory functions do not work. Music transport functions (Skip forward/back) do not work and result in loss of connection if you try.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This item is very cheap. I don't mean the price but the product. Things didn't improve when I got the manual out as only steps 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9 were included. The steps for actually working the unit were missing. Fortunately I found a copy on the internet but even then it is written in Chinese English so not always easy to understand with only a few details and does not cover half the functions. Once I eventually managed to connect my Samsung SII, I had no instructions to tell me how to select a contact to phone. Also, when playing music, if I skipped to the next track, it would play a few seconds then lose contact. I also managed to connect my Sony 16GB MP3 player (NWZE465L), which connected (only according to my MP3 player though), but I never managed to get any music through the stereo. As much as I liked the steering wheel remote control (even though it was cheep), it would always lose contact with the main unit and button presses would seldom do anything. All-in-all, very cheap, very disappointing and very taken back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An excellent concept, just what I was looking for! Unfortunately it proved worse than useless and not of merchantable quality. A shame as there is nothing else so compact or functionally good looking.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've only had this for a few days but I am impressed with the sound quality. I bought this to use the line in connector for my MP3 player. In this mode the sound quality is better than the DAB radio with transmitter that I replaced and it is very easy to set up and use. The transmission range goes slightly lower and slightly higher than the one I previously used so there is less interference from broadcast radio channels. The bluetooth was an additional benefit and I can now stream internet radio from my phone to the car stereo. Initially sound quality was very poor and not at all like the MP3. Then I read the leaflet that said to reduce the volume on thebluetooth device and increase the volume on the car radio. Turning down the volume on the phone and increasing the car radio volume changed things dramatically and the bluetooth sound quality is now as good as the line in sound quality. Build quality of the remote is not that great but it does the job.
