Quick and easy to setup
Quick and easy to setup. Process: connected to phone via Bluetooth, set channel on FM Transmitter to 87.9 (my preferred station for transmission), changed car stereo to 87.9 FM, started music on phone and auditory perfection ensued. The sound quality is top notch for short radius fm transmission. The next and previous buttons worked seamlessly with my audio apps. The adjustable volume nob makes it easy to adjust the volume, and allows for adjusting on the phone, on the transmitter, and on the stereo as 3 separate adjustments to get the volume exactly where you want it. The long adjustable neck is perfect for keeping it accessible even when cup holders are extended forcing odd angles. Fast charge works great on my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone, as well as simultaneous dual charge. The Microphone on the transmitter works surprisingly well. Call recipients can hear me just fine and I can hear them well. The audio jack works as expected and provides a great way to connect for devices that don't have Bluetooth connectivity. The micro sd slot works great on my 32 gb sd card. Overall I am impressed with this transmitter, and would highly recommend it for both quality and price.
Worked good for 9 days, then died (Comment edited)
Very disappointed. The product worked very well for 9 days, just long enough to discard the packaging needed to send it back. Included in the packaging was a replacement fuse, but there were no directions included in the enclosed packaging material for how to change it out, in, indeed, that was the problem.I'll just buy my next dongle at Walmart, where at least I can exchange/return it if needed.Edit: I received an email the day after I posted the original review from them, unsolicited. They happily and speedily sent me a new one, also unsolicited, and it has been working perfectly for a couple of weeks now. Excellent customer service!!
A 10/10 Must Buy - Works as expected, would look forward to future improvements!
For under $30, you absolutely cannot complain. A couple years ago I bought two wired units that were cheap, cheesy, and functioned fine. I gave the one I didn't like as much away. Recently I purchased a case for my new phone, and the jack would not fit without removing the case. I figured it was about time for some sort of upgrade. I have the S9+ and have zero issues with this transmitter.Pros - Many of these pros were mostly unexpected+ Button layout is PERFECT+ Unit is smaller than I expected+ Doesn't look as cheap IRL than I expected+ Specifications are that of 2017 or 2018 for sure, I mean Bluetooth 4.2 and QuickCharge 3? That's impressive!+ Connecting is a breeze. Connect via Bluetooth and start streaming music. Turn your phone volume and the device volume all the way up and you're set+ Prev/Next/Pause/Play are added bonuses that make driving much safer+ Call audio is pretty good! They can hear me well, visa versa+ Came with an extra fuse+ Music sounds great, bass comes through as expected+ Display, a pro and a conIn the middle, I haven't really figured out how to use the assistant with this device. I don't use Bixby. Google Assistant is far superior from any assistant for my daily life. I still find myself unlocking my phone and asking Google what I need. Not a big deal to me, I didn't even expect this as an advertised feature when I was browsing transmitters.Cons - This is more or less being picky about non-issues and future expectations for a new device update- The average person will lose the extra fuse. There should be a way to store the spare fuse in an empty compartment spot inside the transmitter.- Audio quality is superb, especially compared to the two units I had before. The only downside is that you may experience minor interference or hear feedback from your car. It is so minor, you likely won't notice and there's really no reason to care. Additionally, I found some mid strong notes cut a bit off on songs, but it may have been interference or just my stock car speakers- Every time you start your car, you have to hear the device telling you it is looking for your phone, and saying it is paired. *This is definitely the biggest con*, but not a huge deal. Still better than scrambling to plug the audio jack into your phone. I wish this could be disabled, because the transmitter is so reliable, I don't need to know that it's looking or paired.- The display is a bit cheap. What else would you expect? I certainly don't need a high end display because the one it has functions perfect. In a way, the display is also a pro. I would describe the display as, 'it lags behind with changing text'. I was adjusting the radio channel to broadcast to and that was slow and tedious, but it's easy to change so it's really a nonissue.- The only other downside I can find, is the audio will not be as loud when using Bluetooth, but most people won't notice. However, it also depends on what phone you have with how loud it is when using a wired connection.So what exactly would I like to see in an updated version? Newer Bluetooth version, built-in storage for the extra fuse. It would especially be great to adjust the Assistant activation to like 1 to 2 seconds (3 to 5 is a bit long). You're pressing the button for less than a second to Pause/Play, so the Assistant should be more convenient at 1-2. The most important thing to me would be muting the voice saying that the device is scanning or paired. My other unit had the ability to scan for empty channels, but please don't add that into this device because that just means wasted space on the device and a button I'll never press. Everything on here is so functional, and it should remain that way. I would almost go as far as saying to get rid of the volume level on the display, along with "Bluetooth BT70".***Lastly, and most important of what I'd like to see in a new version, I wish there was a wheel knob or button to lower or even turn down or off the brightness. Transmitters are always annoying to drive with at night. At the very least, to keep costs down, I would like to see a button with 4 or 5 brightness settings from OFF to Bright, and not on the front but on the SIDE of the device. Software functionality could be added, double or triple tap the Pause/Play button and turn the knob to adjust brightness.***Overall, what you get for under $30 is so much value. I will definitely be telling others about this. This is especially an awesome Christmas present or birthday present! This is by far the best unit you can possibly purchase, anywhere. I specifically paid $4 for faster shipping because it's so cheap. The price blows my mind, and the transmitter rocks my car! This is a must buy!
It works as expected
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. The directions were straight forward and when I tested it out, it worked as I had hope for. I can’t believe it took me so long to look up this sort of item
Music plays very softly
I have to say I'm disappointed with the unit I got. It looks good, the screen is nice, and it fits well in my car. The problem I have with this is that I wanted this as a Bluetooth bridge between my phone and my car in order to play music, and it doesn't do it very well. I have to turn the volume on the unit all the way up, the volume on my phone all the way up, and the volume on my car stereo all the way up, and it's still barely loud enough to hear over the road noise. I tried connecting my phone through Bluetooth and the aux cable, and it's the same with both. The radio is set on a channel without any stations near it, and I'm not getting static, just not much sound. The unit's status messages are loud and clear, which almost blew me out of the car since the stereo was turned up all the way, so I'm not sure why the music is so quiet.
Great bluetooth car adapter
For years and years I had been using MP3 players in my car. Eventually something would break and I'd have to track down a replacement, learn a whole new interface and way to transfer my music. That can get expensive and time consuming. Then one day it occurred to me that I have a perfectly fine music player right in my pocket that goes everywhere I do. My car doesn't have bluetooth but there's plenty of inexpensive adapters out there.This isn't my first, but it's my favorite. The buttons are nice and big, and they're grouped on the same side of the device so I don't have to take my eyes off the road to skip around my playlist. I connected the headphone jack on the bluetooth adapter to the AUX port on my car so I can skip the FM tuner. The audio is nice and clear. Great sound quality. I'm really happy with it.I installed the Bluetooth Autoplay Music Android app by Jason Maderski so I could have Pulsar start playing as soon as the adapter paired with my phone. Works perfectly. Now I just get in the car and go. I don't have to touch a thing.I had some questions so I contacted Leextec support and Emma got back to me right away. Good customer service.
Sturdy and Easy to Use
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Purchased this for our good old 2003 Honda Civic. Setting up and pairing was very easy. Its sturdy and fits well in the Car Cigarette Lighter power supply of our car. Not wobbly at all. Paired it with my husband’s phone to play music. Sound quality is very good.Since the device is paired with my husband’s phone he can easily answer my call when he is driving. And since we have an old car this feature is very useful because my husband doesn’t have to reach for his phone which is safer too.So far we have not encountered any issues with this device. Pairing is easy. Sound Quality is very good. It’s Sturdy. I just wish I can also use USB Stick to play music with this device aside from the SD Card. Overall, I am happy with this product.
Prompt delivery and so easy to install
I bought an old car which had a factory fitted radio and CD player. I was considering buying a Bluetooth radio with a hands free facility so that I could play my music and answer my phone. Saw this. Bought it. Prompt delivery and so easy to install. Works a treat. I now have a good hands free facility and I’m listening to all my tunes from my phone streamed through my car speakers. A cheap but excellent bit of kit.
Durable and easy to set up
This is a fantastic piece of kit if your car radio doesn't have a AUX input. You can connect this to your car radio and than play your own phone/iPod/mp3 player through the radio.I've had a fm transmitter before so I found this easy to setup. May be a little more difficult for first timers.It's bulky so could cause a issue with some cars depending where your ciggie lighter port is located.I was overall very pleased with the quality and durable of the product. As well as the sound quality of the product :)
Love It So Much
I really enjoy this product. It works exactly as described, and aside from a little bit of unrefined design, it is perfect. To add some background, I use a Nexus 6P. I had to setup the Bluetooth connection once when I got the product, which was a very easy process. Once you press play, you realize the exquisite quality of the sound. Bluetooth technology has really stepped it's game up. The transmitter has no problems connecting to my phone, and has a VERY strong radio transmission. My previous, fm transmitter was completely overwhelmed when I turned this one on. As well I've noticed interference from other cars with previous transmitters, this product has no issue with that at all.I really would recommend you buy this product. It's about as effective as replacing your old car stereo, and about one fifth the cost.
Better than I expected!
This product actually works and better than I expected! If you have an IPhone you can set Syri to voice activation ( no need to press home button)press the button on the device and ask it to make a call so there is no need to touch your phone. Complete hands free system for a very reasonable price. Very easy to set up. If you’re buying this to listen to music it still performs well but there is a phasing in the background due to its connection through FM. This is inaudible once the volume is turned up and may be due to the frequency of my choice not being perfect (90.00FM). I haven’t tried it on another frequency because it’s perfectly adequate for my needs. Recommend
