Pros I've used it for 3 years now, mostly as I commute to work, a pretty predictable route. I found it works best after trying several frequencies, settling on 97.9 and having a usb power adapter attached ( acts as an antenna.)
Cons Don't leave in your car in sub-freezing temperatures or it transmits badly until warm. Sucks iTouch battery power, better to use power adapter for long trips. Stay away from Needham, which has the major transmitting towers for Boston stations.
Summary Simple to use, I would buy another.
I drive a predictable route and have pretty much optimized my configuration. When I travel to VT and NH I switch to another frequency and that has worked out well. I also use it in the house to play my tunes over the Sangean radio, sounds great.
Most reviews I read on these devices are useless, because they don't specify any details on how they use them - like type of car(if used), type of area driven (country, city, burbs) buildings, geographic area) where they place it in the car, do they use power adapter, how do they route the wire, are there a lot of radio stations in the area, what frequencies they used, near major transmitters, etc. Since there are many major variables, a review that says "it's terrible" is a useless review. You guys need to be more specific.
"weak signal"on by dfount1009
Pros sleek and small
Cons too much interference
Summary I recently got a iPod nano and needed way to listen to my tunes in the car. I used this for 2 days and I'm ready to throw it out the window. It picks up a lot of other signals besides the iPod.
Pros easy use, works great in the middle of nowhere
Cons underpowered, needs to be in contact with the antenna in cities
Summary just get cables or soem sort of bluetooth device unless you live where you dont get many radio stations
