Listen to your own playlists without upgrading your radio
With the Maplin FM transmitter, you can plug any device with a standard headphone port into your car sound system without upgrading your head unit. Simply connect the accessory plug to the port in your vehicle, and the 3.5mm auxiliary jack to your phone, MP3 player or other audio device. Tune the radio into an empty station, making sure that the FM transmitter is on the same frequency, and you can start playing your playlists from your phone through your cars speakers.

Make hands-free calls when you’re out and about
With built-in call compatibility you can now make hands-free calls when you are on the move. There is a handy button on the FM transmitter for you to quickly answer and end calls. It’s easy to use, as the built-in microphone picks up your voice and the audio is played directly through the car speakers.

Never run out of charge when you’re on the go
The Maplin FM transmitter has a 2.1A USB port, so you can quickly charge your devices while you have it connected to your car. This means you don’t need to worry about any extra drain on your battery when using the audio features.

There are no instructions detailing how to set this up in the box, just a sheet identifying what each component does. Could you reply with set up instruction please? Thanks

To use the item, plug the 12v plug into the cigarette lighter socket, the 3.5mm jack into a phone playing audio or a music player. Set the transmitter in the middle to a frequency of your choosing and then tune your radio to that freqency
