Ivation Universal Wireless Car Bluetooth FM Radio Transmitter Car Kit with USB Adapte

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 3.22.50 PMThis is a pretty neat Bluetooth FM transmitter that can come in handy for music listening purposes in your car. Here are some of my observations.


1. It is very easy to pair up. It took me just a few seconds to put it in the pairing mode, and then it was immediately recognized by my iPhone 6 plus. After that the connection was fairly robust and consistent – I never had to “re-pair” it again.

2. The range seems pretty good. Obviously, you are primarily going to use this device from within the car, so this feature should not in general be much of an issue. Nonetheless, I tried beaming music to the car from some distance (about 20 – 30 feet), and it still worked without a hitch.

3. The sound quality was pretty good. Almost as good as having a direct connection between my iPhone and my car’s audio system.

4. The transmitter is not too large and it doesn’t clutter up my car. It really helps with keeping the mess in my car to a minimum.


1. It takes a while for the transmitter to be turned on/off. I have to press and hold the on/off button for a few seconds in order to accomplish this.

Overall, this is a pretty neat gadget that will really help get your smartphone music to the car music system on an older car without Bluetooth connectivity.
