Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got the Belkin TuneCast 2 for Christmas and I've now been using it for long enough to evaluate it. It seems to do what it says on the tin once you figure out its little foibles. You need the MP3 player output well up - I've found No 20 on a scale of 30 works well. I've found trouble getting a clear frequency to use - not a problem you would have in rural areas. 107.9 works OK in Edinburgh, but as you travel along the M8 it gets swamped as you approach Harthill. Of course, you've got 3 giant masts putting out goodness knows what, and you get radios 2, 4 and Scotland splurged across every part of the dial for a few miles. Once you're past that, 107.9 is swamped by Lanark's L107, so you try 106.5 which works as far as Glasgow, then it is blitzed by some of the countless stations there. 106.9 seems the only refuge in Glasgow. Luckily the Belkin has 4 programmable presets so I have the 3 usable frequencies at the touch of a button. Now for signal strength. Not as powerful as I would have liked, but I have now figured out the best places to put it. In the truck, this is on top of the dashboard at the far right, beside the aerial. In the car, the best place is on the left side of the centre console, inside a sort of net map pocket thing, which keeps it tidy. As the truck is 24 volts, I can only use the 12 volt power adaptor in the car. NMH rechargeables last for about 2 full days use in the truck which is OK. I've just bought a new set of 4 AAA rechargeables (it takes 2). The sound quality and stereo is excellent and comparable to playing a CD. Well, there you are. Overall I would say it's worth it for what I want, and a nice little piece of kit. Other people might say there's too much fiddling involved, but the whole thing's a compromise anyway. Also when BBC switch off FM analogue and go all digital there'll be plenty of free frequencies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work, cheap plasticy and very poorly made, buttons are almost useless and to cap it all the FM transmitter cannot send a decent signal even when 3 inches from the aerial.

Do you sell a model like this that doesnt have a "power save feature" that turns the unit off if no signal is received for an amount of time.
