works with 3GS – Car Charger Full Range FM Transmitter with 0.7" LCD Display for All iPod/iPhone 2G/3G Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
DOES work with iPhone 3GS - charges and transmits. Easy to use. Nice looking display.
Cons:
Causes a small amount of interference on other channels. For example, when just charging the iPhone and listening to another FM radio station. Transmits at a lower volume than most commercial radio stations (radio signal is strong enough, FM deviation is low). So you have to turn up the car radio 30% higher than normal (and remember to turn it back down later).
Other:
Nit: Clear plastic window covering LCD fell off in shipping, but I just pressed it back into place and it's stuck again. Build quality is slightly less than a typical American name brand product, but higher than what I expected.
Bottomline:
SKU 33801 is totally worth it. I also bought a SKU 28502, which does NOT charge the 3GS (message pops up on the phone screen, can not charge, airplane mode, etc).
