Works. For the money ... – 1.7" LCD Car MP3/MP4 Player FM Transmitter with IR Remote Controller - Brown (SD/MMC/USB) Reviews

Pros:
Price has gone up since I bought - it was ludicrously low. Still pretty low. Quarter VGA colour screen in semi-disposably priced stuff like this? I boggle.
Cons:
The big issue is that the transmitter is INSIDE the steel box and the radio's antenna is OUTSIDE the steel box. The signal is marginal after punching through the roof. Pretty tight clearance between the Toyota console's jack and the gearshift. The head can move a bit and the plug rotate, so it fits. Barely.
Other:
I use it with a 16 GB USB stick. An SD would look nicer, but the USB is more versatile.
Bottomline:
We're talking lunch money here. What's a bottom line?
