The best bluetooth receiver / FM transmitter I’ve used!

This item arrived in a nice, glossy, retail style box. Inside the box were the unit itself, an instruction manual, and a 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack cable (decent length). The item can take input via blutooth (including music), the jack plug, or an SD card, meaning you have lots of ways to get audio via your radio.

The car power socket plug is connected to the unit via a short “swan neck” type stalk, that can be twisted into various shapes, so you can angle the device to suit your particular placement or vehicle. The colours and glossy finish suggest this is a really high quality device, as does the nicely backlit LCD screen. I love that the power plug has a USB socket at the front, so you can still charge your phone whilst using the device as a hands free kit.
