    Bottom line: Pretty much the worst thing I've ever bought. A complete waste of money; an expensive charger, that's all.

          I've had two of these in the past year. both have stopped working for no reason. First it stops charging, then stop transmitting. I bought the second thinking I got a bad one the first time. The second one lasted only a few months also. The only Monster here is quality!

              You basically have to remove your antenna to get this to work half decently. But even then it has horrible static when listening to certain words or tones.

              I was given an IPod Touch for Valentine's Day and decided to get this adapter to double as not only a charger but also to provide a way for me to listen to my IPod and get rid of a car full of CD's. Well the sound quality is about average and static is always present regardless of the station it or I choose. I will continue to use this product until I decide to replace my truck's head unit for one that comes with IPod controls.

                Comments about Monster® iCarPlay™ FM Transmitter for iPod® and iPhone®:

                I spoke with a tech at MonsterCable. I asked him why the prior models worked so well (+/- 2-3 years old) with my 1st Gen Nano but this new one doesn't work with my new 5th Gen Nano. He said that the FCC told all the manufacturers to turn down the broadcasting power output which is why everyone is having all the issues.
                I asked him why the older, high output units didn't work with the new Nanos and he said Apple changed the circuitry. If you have an older generation iPod and an older FM transmitter HANG ON TO IT! The new FM transmitter is worthless, I'm very disappointed and will be returning it.

                  I received this product as a gift it works REALLY good. I came on line to buy another one for a friend and was surprised to see the ratings. I read the reviews and think they must be messed up, you can't use this with a "MP3" player, it only has a iPhone/iTouch/Apple connector on it and it works great both in the car and on my boat. It looks cool too.

                      I was extremely disappointed with this purchase. It looks nice and is simple enough to use but not worth the money. When you do get your MP3 player to come through the sound is muffled by static and is not consistent. Product is way overpriced for its function.
