        Horrible Connection on every station

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

          Very poor reception on every station, when I could get it to work, the static was so bad I couldn't hear my music. The support staff told me to keep looking for a clear station, but I tried over 30 stations and couldn't find one clear enough. I had to return this product, after I got the run around from customer service reps. Horrible product, not worth the price.

          Like most people I have a protective cover over my iphone (apple makes these for this purpose). The Monster product does NOT fit with the covers, to my knowledge there is no adapter to make it work. It looks like a waste of money.

              Owned a Gigaware product for three months that worked perfectly but was stolen from our car. Bought the Monster that is 30 percent more in cost and wildly inferior in quality, don' t buy.

              This product sucks!!! Do not buy!!! The autoscan almost never gives me a good Channel... In fact 9 times out of 10 it gives me a radio stations channel! Don't spend your money on this piece of junk! Might as well pay the 40 bucks for the cheaper one because it does the same thing and produces the same quality.

                The scanning mode did not work well for me so I manually searched and locked a channel. The antenna signal is week and the sound that comes through my stereo has significant static. I also wish I had been more savy and purchased one that would transmit phone calls. This doesn't, and for the price, you would think it would. Definite not buy again for me!

                    the unit does not work I hooked it up in my car will not pick up the station I sit on my radio and on the unit. automatic scan will pick a station that is not the best station on the radio and it will play on that station. But when I set it on a strong station it will not connect.

                    I bought this product to replace my Griffin iTrip (which worked excellent for half the cost). I thought for the money this would be a quality product. It is not. It's difficult to set the stations while driving (very unsafe) because the scanner skips. Once you find a station that completely unused, and set the iCarPlay to that station, it doesn't take long to hear more static then music. On top of that, the piece that connects into my iPhone doesn't fit with my case on. This has never happened other products that I have used. I never write reviews, but this product was so disappointing that I felt inclined to warn potential buyers.
