excellent for the price, January 10, 2007

I'd give this thing 5 stars for the price, but the lack of useful instructions operating tips with the unit made me take away a star, is probably the reason for some poor reviews here.

First, the unit does not have 4 "bands". It has 4 frequencies to choose from between 88.1-88.7mhz. If you have a crummy radio that only picks up strong stations, or picks up bits of a strong station on more than 1 place on the dial, most FM transmitters will give you problems with those basic cheap radios.

I have not used this unit in a car yet (got it primarily for the laptop mp3 player), but if you follow my tips, it shouldn't give you a problem.

When you open the battery cover, you'll find a black wire around the circumference inside. This is the transmitting antenna. If you grab the black tip of it, it extends out through the hole in the battery cover when you replace the cover.

With the antenna wire not extended remaining inside, I was able to.


Great for the price!, December 11, 2005

I just bought this and am now listening to my iPod through my home stereo. Unlike the previous reviewer, I had no difficulty selecting a radio station (all four stations, 88.1, 88.3, 88.5 and 88.7 appear to work fine), or getting static instead of music.

The sound is good, and the only time I get any significant static is when I move the iPod a few feet away from my stereo receiver. Considering the low price of the item, I am very pleasantly surprised.



Works for me, July 29, 2009

It works fine for me. Does what is suppose to. It overpowers a weak station on 88.7. It works from 50 feet away. No static. Sound is a little thin, but who cares when you are going 70 with the windows down. The connection to the ipod is clunky so I knocked off a star. I will get, or make an extension cord, so there is a wire between the ipod and the P-13 to make it easier to handle. Great unit for the money. I did get it for less some where else though so look around.
