I'm not sure. But I'll know by tomorrow. My husband is talking car for final check then. I can call and ask the dealer if I cannot easily find the answer. I drive a Cadillac DTS and have no idea where it would be. Thanks for steering me toward a better solution.
Thanks. I saw the products on Amazon (my second home ), but I also wanted some advise. This is helpful though. I couldn't find a article on consumerreports.com. I like using Amazon when nothing is on CR because of the customer reviews. Thanks again!
Totally agree, FM Transmitter's suck on any/all platforms. Just didn't want to be the first to post it as I try to observe a general rule of not being the first to post negative comments on this forum given my bent
I don't understand though, how an internet radio app helps her need. I think her intent is to play her iPhone media through the car speaker system. I'd only recommend two routes on this; cable via an Apple connect or aux port on the deck to do male-male 3.5mm or whatever that pin size is and/or BT deck but other's will need to chime in on BT compatibility as Apple products have a history of being finicky in this arena. No jibe intended.
I wire or BT a feed from my media device(s) for those long road trips where you're out of range from your usually radio station and/or can be in territory that is not served by radio in general. I don't know if such space can be found in the southern US but up here in Canada, it's quite typical of our cottage country.
For the life of me I'm not sure what the Op is looking for. The iPhone will not transmit FM & it will not receive it. Maybe needs an App like radio.com or WunderRadio that will allow access to FM stations.
Simple, imagine a speaker dock but instead of speakers, transmit the audio signal to an FM frequency that the car radio can pickup. It works fine as long as the transmitter is stronger than actual radio signals around the channel being transmitted. Typically the accessory also charges the iPhone/ipod.
With said accessory your music collection is heard through the car system for the benefit of all the passengers.
Well then you could get an A2DP BT speakerphone that transmits on an FM frequency. I happen to have one of these. But, you're right. If there is a frequency too close to the one selected by the BT device, you can get a lot of bleed over.
I purchased the Satechi FM Transmitter through Amazon after reading lots of customer reviews online. It was defective, but the company was great and immediately replaced it in time for our vacation. We used it throughout our vacation road trip (2000 miles) and it worked fantastically the entire time. Thanks!
