Impressive – 1.6" LCD Car MP3 Player FM Transmitter with IR Remote Controller (3.5mm Audio/SD/USB) Reviews

Small, flexible. Fits well in the dash board of my old Citroën. Nice crisp screen. Unlike many of the other similar products, this one has a pixel-based LCD and fits a lot of information on-screen. The remote has nice rubbery buttons. Comes with the cable you need to connect any MP3 player Skips between songs fairly quickly Saves the frequency between shutdowns.
Somewhat lacking in settings. There are two buttons on the remote that only display "FREQ" and "LABEL" on the display, and since there is no manual included I cannot say what these buttons do. As far as I can tell, there is no way to play a random song from any of multiple folders. It can randomize within a folder. Remote reception is terrible. One really has to point the remote AT the device at a short range to make it work. Most of the functions (like volume control) can only be accessed through the remote.
The frequency is adjustable in 0.1MHz increments. The reception isn't great, but my cigarette jack is a bit away from the stereo. It may be better for you, depending on car, head unit and which frequency you select.
Not a bad purchase. Radio isn't the ideal way to get music to your speakers, but this device does the job as well as I would expect any device to do it.
