Wanted to use this item to play my MP3 player thru the car radio while on trips. Tried it with 3 cars and 2 other FM radios, and got mainly static with faint music in the background on all of them. This even occurred when the transmitter was placed in direct contact with the car's or radio's antenna. As such, it is unuseable and I will be returning it for a refund.

I was hoping there were some tricks to get this thing to work well, but if there are, I haven't figured them out. No matter what station I use or where I place the device, the sound quality is not only bad, but unstable. Sometimes I find a 'sweet spot' where it sounds okay for a while, but it never lasts. It's annoying and frustrating to have the sound get worse and worse. I only try to use this when I am utterly desperate for decent tunes or podcasts in my car. Obviously I need to just update my sound system, but was hoping this would be a good workaround. It isn't.
The Wagan FM Sound Transmitter is the only sounds transmitter we carry. Unfortunately it requires two AAA batteries (not included) or DC power and can not be powered by a 120 v a/c or a solar cell.
