Pros clean, classy design with cables that pack away nice & neat
Cons only two presets
Summary the zune car pack has the basics, but it also boasts a little autofinder thing that will find usable radio stations for you, its cables will tuck away inside the body of the device (which is great when you have a car that looks completely tornado-ridden), and has a very nice classy look to it.
the only down side lies with the fact that it only has two preset buttons, but like i said before, the autofinder works great.
Pros Great reception, autoscan, presets
Cons wires can get a little tangled, but you can manage them easily
Summary I was a little skeptical when my brother got this for me b/c i heard bad things about the 1st generation Zune Car Pack, but i was quickly amazed by this product! I get great reception no matter where i go (so long as you utilize the autoscan feature, which searches for the best reception stations around), and i've gone from seattle to portland to los angeles and i can always find a great station! DON'T LISTEN TO BAD REVIEWS! THOSE PEOPLE JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE THE SWEET FEATURES ON THIS AWESOME PRODUCT! It does suck if you don't have a Zune, but if you do, you NEED to get this for your car!
Pros Love the magnetic tuner and the two channel presets and the fact that it "talks" to the car's display screen with the artist and the title of what is being played.
Cons The reception is not very good. I have used an iriver FM charger transmitter for my iriver clix and had no issues with reception. I also used a Phillips FM transmitter and the sound was smooth, not choppy at all.
Summary At this moment it seems like the Zune Car pack charger is an overpriced Zune charger.
Pros Automatically shuts off zune when power is terminated and turns it back on when power is re-established.
Cons Isn't worth a CRAP! Literally, I'd rather have a bag of poo than this miserable, aggrivating product.
Summary It won't work on any stations below 100, if you can actually find a station above 100 that picks up the transmission it's filled with static and won't last more than a few minutes, the autosearch is worthless since it lands on stations with a full transmission signal. The idea of the product is fantastic, if they actually turned up the strength of the frequency so your car radio could find it. In summary, HORRIBLE, LOUSY, MISERABLE PRODUCT. save yourself the aggrivation and sing loudly instead.I would like everyone who gave this piece of garbage a good rating to contact me. I want to be your friend. You obvously have low standards and are easily impressed. Since I'm a bit difficult to get along with and not very impressive, I need friends who possess your qualities.

Pros good reception, nice look, auto tune, presets, bright clear display, comes with grip pad, charges zune,
Cons its not cheap, a little wire clutter
Summary works great
my radio picks up a great signal from it with out any static or other interference even though it was broadcasting close enough to another station to be able to hear that station when the transmitter isn't plugged in.
